With a 30mm focal length (60mm equivalent on a full frame) this lens can double as an everyday and macro lens.
For a lens that retails for $300, I was disappointed at the content and packaging. The lens came inside a simple box with a couple warranty and manuals. Then there was the lens enclosed in cardboard with the front and rear lens cap and that was it. It would have been nice if Olympus included either a lens hood or drawstring bag along with the lens. Luckily, I was able to get it for less than $100 during black Friday so I didn’t mind it as much, but I would definitely not pay $300 for it.
