Very good quality ! Focus super fast, very silent. 2 things can hurt : It's on plastic so lighter (better for me) but people prefere metal ^^ And the rinf of manual focus does not have stop but i use only auto focus so it's good for me ^^

I do the same thing, before purchasing something, it’s good to find out more information about product or item, unless is really cheap :)

Jack Jack FYI, about your question if the lens is 1:1, as far as I know it's actually effectively 2:1. The physical projection on the sensor at closest focus is 1:1, but because the MFT has a crop factor of x2 compared to 35mm FF, the resulting digital image is an equivalent of a 2:1 FF macro lens.

So you saying that on a crop camera there will be bigger magnification ?

Jack Jack jup. That's the standard. Generally the focal length for all 4/3 and Mft cameras is x2. APS is different because there are different sensor sizes.

That's because the manufacturers specify the physical focal lengths and other parameters like aperture. Due due the half size sensor everything is effectively x2.
