Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 30mm f/3.5
Standard prime macro lens for Olympus PEN, OM-D, and other micro four thirds mirrorless cameras
Our take on the Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 30mm f/3.5 by Crutchfield's Deia Z.
It's all in the details
A lens that lets you get within four inches of your subject can lead to some eye-opening discoveries, revealing all kinds of details that aren't fully visible to the naked eye. This 30mm f/3.5 macro lens from Olympus lets you take sharp, detailed close-ups of the tiniest subjects, from an insect on a flower petal to an individual snowflake. With a 35mm equivalent focal length of 60mm, it's also a fantastic portrait lens. Its Movie & Stills Compatible (MSC) autofocus system and electronic zoom mechanism give you nearly silent control so you won't hear it working when you're shooting video with sound.
