I loved this lens when I used MFT. I am now on full frame but have kept it and a gh4 as it is a great walk around option.
Small, lightweight and very sharp.

Pros: - 60mm (120mm FF equivalent) allows reasonable working distance to subject
- MFT crop factor makes this effectively a 2:1 lens
- lightweight
- weather sealed
- 3 focus settings (close, full focus range, far)
- long focus throw allows precise manual focusing
Cons: - takes some time to get used to
- lens hood not included, costs extra
In my opinion this is a great lens. It's small and lightweight, so there is no excuse to not carry it with you. The price is reasonable and sometimes Olympus gives discounts on it. It's definitely the sharpest Lens I own, possibly only rivaled by my PanaLeica 100-400mm, which is a higher prices level and hast different applications.

It can also double as a portrait lens and has further applications.

For me this lens is an absolute essential in the MFT ecosystem.

Pros: Small and light
Cons: None
This lens offers you a great combination of very good optical performance, light weight, compact design and a good price / quality ratio. Photographers with a microfourthirds camera interested in macro photography should definitely put this lens on their wish list.
Even if you are not a macro photographer, but for example a portrait photographer, then this lens is interesting. The lens delivers very high quality at a relatively low price.
