    The Polish site optyczne (the source for the reviews at lenstip.com) has just reviewed the 60/2.8. They had no significant complaints other than some astigmatism, and recommend it strongly. I'm going off the google translation, but it should appear in English on lenstip.com in a few days.

    From the charts, it seems to be a little sharper than PL 45/2.8 in both the center and corners, and even equals the 75/1.8 in the center, though not in the corners.

    From the review, the 60/2.8:

    The 45/2.8

    The 75/1.8

    The English translation is now up on Lenstip.com

    From the conclusion:

    "I don’t write a lot about the lens itself because there is no need to go on about it. Firstly it doesn’t have any competition in the Micro 4/3 system, secondly it is so good that you can recommend it to anybody, as we are doing right now."​

    I'd say they liked it!

    It does sound like a really fine lens. I think I'd rather have the 75mm, though. :cool:

    Its one of the best macro lenses out on any platform on any system ever. I've used a lot/most of them from Nikon, Canon, Leica, Zeiss, etc.

    Olympus is really good at making macro lenses.
