m.Zuiko versus OM Zuiko macro

Micro Four Thirds Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review - forums.dpreview.com
Lured by firmware 4.0 and a cash back deal, I have bought the m.Zuiko 60 mm macro.

So I have compared it with my old OM Zuiko macro lenses. Yup, the m.Zuiko beats the 40+ year old designs, but the golden oldies keep up quit well! On the otherhand, the m.Zuiko can compete with three different lenses:

50 mm F3.5 - optimized for 1:2

80 mm F4 - optimized for 1:1

135 mm F4.5 - optimized for 1:5

I'm a bit suprised about the difference between the 80 mm and the 60 mm. I would expect a close call, like with the 135 mm.

Below a few examples of a quick test.

They are "auto levelled" from the jpgs to match colour and contrast. The m.Zuiko has the advantage of the in-camera correction.

Cheers, Erwin
