Olympus 50mm f/2 Macro for Four Thirds

Pre-order

WARNING: This is a 4/3 mount lens designed for 4/3 mount cameras. It does not work with Micro 4/3 mount cameras unless using an adapter!

The 50mm f/2 provides you with a superb close-up lens capable of focusing within 9 inches of the front objective. It also makes an excellent low light portrait lens.

Please Note: Due to a variety of problems we have encountered, we do not recommend using Olympus 4/3 lenses for video use with Panasonic Micro 4/3 cameras/camcorders. Rent at your own risk.

This is one of our most popular lenses for Four Thirds mount. And that is for good reason—it’s beautiful. The lens has wonderful contrast and focuses faster than the Olympus 35mm f/3.5 Macro. While it is not a true 1:1 macro, you still get stellar results from it, taking into account its very small size. Oh yea, by the way, it’s an f/2!
