    Lenstip has its review of the Olympus 60mm macro up on its Polish sister site. I'm sure the English translation will appear soon.

    Test Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 60 mm f/2.8 ED Macro - Wst

    Here's a google translate version:

    Resolution looks really good, though corners aren't anywhere near as strong as the center (but still excellent!):
    73495_roz.

    I wonder if the corners do better at macro distances...

    Conclusions:

    Advantages:
    neat and interesting designed body of the lens,
    sensational image quality in the center of the frame,
    good image quality at the edge of the frame,
    slight chromatic aberration,
    zero distortion,
    well corrected coma,
    moderate vignetting,
    very quiet and accurate autofocus.

    Cons:
    modest standard, (this is Google's translation. I'm not sure what it should be...)
    noticeable astigmatism at the maximum aperture.

    I think a slightly better translation is "modest standard equipment". From reading other parts of the translated review, I think that this refers to the lens as standard coming with only lens caps, i.e. no hood or any other extras.
