Technical Details
– A prime lens with a fixed focal length of 60mm designed for sharp close-up shooting
– The wide, fast f/2.8 aperture creates a shallow depth of field wide open and improves image quality in low-light conditions
– The ED (extra-low dispersion) glass element reduces chromatic aberrations for greater accuracy in your images
– The lens is Movie & Still Compatible (MSC), with near-silent focusing allowing it to be used for video as well as still image capture

Product Description
The Olympus M.Zuiko 60mm f/2.8 ED Macro Lens features a closest focusing distance of 7.4 inches, 1x magnification, and dust/splash-proof construction. It incorporates 13 lens elements in 10 groups with ED, HR and E-HR elements to eliminate chromatic aberrations. It also incorporates Olympus’ 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.
