Macro photography with the Olympus pancake 17 mm lens and the close-up lens LM Macro 80

The compact design of the Olympus E-P1 with the ultra-short M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 17 mm 1:2.8 pancake lens with a length of 22 mm makes this system particularly interesting for mobile use. The Olympus E-P1/P2 has a micro four thirds interchangeable lens mount without an SLR mechanism. Due to this modification in design, it has become possible to create a camera that features the high image quality typical of an SLR while at the same time retaining a compact body size. The interchangeable lens mount makes the system extremely flexible, as for each area of application the optimum lens can be selected. The E-P1 has the small dimensions of a compact camera, but offers the performance of a large SLR camera. With an adapter (MMF-1) all four thirds lenses may be used.

Olympus Pancake E-P1

The 80 mm LM Macro 80 transforms the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 17 mm into a fully-fledged macro system with a magnification of approximately 1:1 at a working distance of 60 mm. The ultra-short pancake lens (22 mm) and the even shorter LM Macro 80 with a length of 18 mm therefore have a combined length of only 40 mm. This short design provides many benefits, especially in mobile use. For stationary use in the laboratory or studio, we offer a special macro stand with rack and pinion, which makes it possible to accurately select the optimum focal plane.
