Check out Scott's Olympus 60mm macro len review, where port options are discussed.
Works great in the Olympus housing flat port!
This high quality macro lens is ideal for shooting a wide range of conditions, including applications such as underwater photography, landscape and portrait shooting. Featuring a closest focusing distance of 7.4 inches, this lens has excellent close-up capability with 1X magnification, and dust-/splash-proof construction. The lens incorporates 13 lens elements in 10 groups with extensive use of special glass materials such as ED (Extra-low Dispersion), HR (High Refractive index) and E-HR (Extra-High Refractive index) elements to completely eliminate the chromatic aberrations that can be noticeable with telephoto macro lenses.
The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 60mm f2.8 Macro incorporates Olympus's exclusive MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) mechanism, which is based on a floating-type inner focusing system with three drive systems resulting in no change in the overall lens length during autofocusing. Other features such as focus limit switching and a shooting distance/magnification indicator window enhance macro shooting control and precision.
