Macro lenses are pretty special, but the OM System M.Zuiko 90mm f/3.5 Macro IS Pro takes things to a whole new level entirely. 

Indeed, everything about the OM System M.Zuiko 90mm f/3.5 Macro IS Pro is special, but let's start with that headline. This is a lens with 2x magnification / 2:1 reproduction ratio as standard – but of course, because OM System / Olympus cameras employ Micro Four Thirds sensors, with a 2x crop factor, that equates to 4x magnification in 35mm terms.
