Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Making the world pop one macro shot at a time I bought this because I'd already started taking pictures of every flower I came across, so the leap to full 1:1 macro seemed natural. Since then, it's spent entire days fixed on my camera. I love it. It's relatively heavy for a Micro 4/3 lens, but that's because of all the good glass in there. The pictures are sharp, I've never noticed any CA, and it definitely lets me get close. It also doubles as a convenient 90mm-equivalent length portrait lens - great for pics of friends or candid street shots. November 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Always like having a macro Lightweight, well-balanced, sharp, great for portraits and macro ie flowers, etc. I love single focal length lenses. While I have the kit zoom lens. My favorite lenses are the 20mm and the reviewed 45mm. April 24, 2010

Any new firmware release includes a description of the changes it makes. If you are having the problem it corrects, or if you want to add the new feature, follow the instructions and install the update. You should always begin the firmware update usong a fully charged battery.
  • I purchased a DMC-GH3 and would like a macro lens to use on it. Will the Leica-Elmarit 45mm / F2.8 work flawlessly on this camera?
    Yes, it should be a very good lens for Macro Photography.
