Alright, so let’s see what comes inside the box of the new Olympus Zuiko ED 30mm f/3.5 macro, remember this is for micro four-thirds. Ok, first thing you’re going to see is your warranty card and this is for the U.S. Of course this is if it’s purchased in the US and if its purchased from an authorized dealer like Digital Goja. And here is a nice instruction pamphlet in multiple languages that gives you some information and very well packaged in here even though it’s a small lens they want to make sure that it gets to you in one piece. Alright and there is, now let’s take a closer look and look at the features on this lens. Alright so let’s take a closer look, here it is 30mm f/3.5 macro aspherical elements, it has two of them and one EDA element of course, what does that mean? That means as we could put together another award-winning lens, especially for us macro photographers, we needed something that allows us to get a bit closer, this guy fits the bill. Notice it has a 1 to 2.5x magnification ratio, which is very well suited for macro shooting. Of course its greater than life size but you do have a minimum working distance of 0.6″ with a minimum focusing distance of 3.7″. It does have their MSC high-speed image or AF which works great for video and stills but of course you do have full time manual focus, very important in macro photography imaging. It is a 46mm filter thread size so that means you can readily find some really good UV, CPL and ND filters out on the market. Notice how it has a metal breach mount with electronic contact so you can get a good connection for your exposure and for your focus, very lightweight, has rounded seven blade diaphragm so that means that you get beautiful Bokeh images when you have it at your maximum aperture of 3.5. Remember, it does stop down to f/22 for considerable depth of field control and if it was a full-frame this will be a 16mm perspective for full frame and 35mm equivalent. So there you have it, if you’re in the market for a new macro lens for your micro four thirds camera take a closer look at the Olympus Zuiko ED 30mm f/3.5 macro. Happy Shooting!

  1. Watching a video about a lens unpacking is a total waste of time. Who do you think cares? At least put a body on it.

  2. I just purchased this lens but it is not working! Should the camera be set on a certain setting. I've tried everything I could think of!
