M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm f/2.8 macro prime lens works as your go to macro lens with its working distance of 60mm (effectively 120mm on a 35 format equivalent). On a Micro Four Thirds mount this lens can work wonders with its close 7.4 minimum focusing distance, while the presence of ED (Extra-Low Dispersion), HR (High Refractive Index), E-HR (Extra High Refractive Index) elements and a life size reproduction capability accentuates its capabilities. A 7-blade circular aperture creates beautiful background blur.
This high quality macro lens is ideal for shooting under a wide range of conditions, including other applications such as landscape and portrait shooting. Featuring a closest focusing distance of 7.4 inches, excellent close-up capability with 1X* magnification, and dust-/splash-proof construction. This lens incorporates 13 lens elements in 10 groups with extensive use of special glass materials such as ED (Extra-low Dispersion), HR (High Refractive index) and E-HR (Extra-High Refractive index) elements to completely eliminate the chromatic aberrations that can be noticeable with telephoto macro lenses.
The new FR-2 Adapter Ring provides easy attachment of Olympuss RF-11 ring flash or STF-22 twin flash allowing for professional and easy TTL Macro Flash Illumination at Macro working distances.
The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 60mm f2.8 Macro incorporates Olympus's exclusive MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) mechanism, which is based on a floating-type inner focusing system with three drive systems resulting in no change in the overall lens length during autofocusing. Other features such as focus limit switching and a shooting distance/magnification indicator window enhance macro shooting control and precision.
