Macro photography is all about the details – and this lens is powerful enough to pick up fine minute details at close distances! Featuring a 2x* magnification and minimum focusing distance of about 7-and-a-half inches it strikes a nice balance between just close enough and not so close you’ll cast shadows on the scene. It’s also worth noting that the 60mm Macro features an extremely bright f2.8 maximum aperture for superb low-light performance and advanced construction employing no less than 13 separate lens elements in 10 groups including some high-end glass materials to help eliminate chromatic aberrations.

The inclusion of the Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) mechanism makes AF operations completely silent. In combination with the OM-D’s Silent Mode (electronic shutter), you can photograph skittish nature subjects as well as indoor events that require complete silence like musical performances. The size and weight of the OM-D system and these silent features open up a whole new world of shooting possibilities!
The 60mm has a Focus Limit Switch, which allows you to establish a narrower range of focus and zero in on your subject faster – particularly useful in shallow-depth-of-field macro shooting. It has a convenient shooting distance and magnification display window to enhance macro shooting control.
