7Artisans 60mm f2.8 Macro Lens Review // Vs Olympus 60mm

The 7Artisans 60mm macro lens (f2.8) is such a great proposition! At last, a sharp, epic, affordable macro lens for micro four thirds and APS-C cameras.

Here is my review, along with loads of sample images.

  1. You mention that because of the focusing difficulties of macro photography so who needs autofocus.

    In traditional macro-photography (the way ot was done before we had all the electronics in our cameras) I understand exactly where you are coming from, but when you are talking about things like focus stacking, this sounds to be something that would be extremely precarious to try and do without some sort of electronic focusing.

  2. Agree with 3rd party lenses can be sharp with nice bokeh. But the Olympus 60mm is also packaged with dust and splash proof. The AF will be extremely useful when u shoot something moving. And when dealing with OM-D E-M5ii and above, AF can be used after magnification.

    That's purely my personal choice sharing my experience with macro photography.

    Thanks for you update anyway.

  3. hi Emily. i am about to purchase this 7artisans 60mm macro lens. it's about 200 dollars. i also found a pana leica 45mm and it costs me around 400 dollars in second hand. it looks very clean. what do you think about these 2 options? is it worth to pay double price? by the way, i am using a g85.

  4. Brilliant video,,,and congrats on getting an early review on this..The great thing I appreciate about your excellent channel (aside from all the real world examples you give us) is that you have all the relevant lenses at hand to make the comparisons with. I was tempted by a bargain price on a used 30mm Olympus…it looks to be good quality,,,but when I was shooting APSC Sony gear..I had the 30MM SAM macro (45mm equivalent FF),,and it was just too short of a focal length to be useful as a macro,,,My 100mm 2.8 Minolta was always a favorite in the film days–so the 60mm in M4/3 should be just the right length…Thanks for the detailed comparison…

  5. OVERVIEW (from retailer)

    7Artisans 60mm F2.8 macro lens contains 8 elements in 7 groups. The floating system on the front glass can guarantee the excellent image quality at infinity and 1:1 macro condition. Even the macro scene is really small, you can also use a extension accessory to get a 2:1 to 3:1 macro image.

    Lens Format: Lens Format: APS-C
    Fixed Mirrorless FL: Focal Length: 60mm
    Maximum Aperture: Maximum Aperture: f/2.8
    Lens Type: Standard Lens

    The 3:1 "extension" device is interesting – an extension tube?

  6. Hello dear …I purchased a vintage Konica hexanon 50mm f1.4 open the package hook my adapter to my g7 this lens was extra blurry on any apature….I contacted seller asap he claim I must of broke it….I have 11 vintage lenses alllll works fine .any thoughts on that???

  7. Thanks for your review.
    Still there’s little information, so yours is very helpful.
    Could you tell me of the exact weight of it? You’re saying it’s pretty heavy, though.

  8. Great video, I'm kind of new to the micro four thirds camera, I have a gx8.

    can anyone recommend a good wide angle and zoom lens as I'm going away on holiday soon and would like to have one of each on me.

    Thanks everyone

  9. Hi, how did I see your video of 7Artisans 60mm f2.8 Macro Lens Review // Vs Olympus 60mm, where did you get it ?, I hope you can help me, I'm from Mexico. a greeting

  10. Use the side control to go to 1:1 on the Oly first, then switch to manual focus. MF does require a lot of ring twisting, but on the other hand you do get very precise adjustment. The 7Artisans looks nice if it's pretty much only for close macro work.

  11. wait what? The 60 mm Oly has this small dial that you can use to instantly ride the focus to the NFD. How can you own that lens and never wondered what this small on the left side does? 😀
