It won't retract automatically, you have to use to focus ring to focus to infinity and the lens will retract. However, because the Olympus uses a "focus-by-wire" system you will have to have your camera turned on for it to work.
Sorry Chris this is incorrect, when turning the power off the 35mm macro lens retracts all the way back from full extension, even if it is in manual focus mode.
And yes fuesdale it is a very good lens for the price.
One day I hope to be the person my dog thinks I am.
