Zuikoholics Malaysia: M.ZD 60mm 1:2.8 Macro Preview

M.Zuiko Digital 60mm 1:2.8 (source: Zuikoholics)

Zuikoholics Malaysia, a new blog which runs by the group of Olympus enthusiasts has published their preview and preliminary field review of the most awaited m43 macro lens, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm 1:2.8. Quoting Zuikoholics, while the 100mm macro lens that suppose to be on Olympus 4/3 lens roadmap is missing, it is now replaced with this new lens. Personally, I wish Olympus will not abandoned entirely the 4/3 system because there are reasons why I still keep my Olympus 4/3 systems.

Anyway, jump to the links for further information:

In other prominent review from Malaysia, Robin Wong via his popular blog is the first to fully review the lens.

I still want my 12-60mm

Olympus - Sunrise through the ZD ED 12-60mm f/2.8-4.0 SWD (equiv. 24-120mm in 35mm) - Evolving Lights
The ZD ED 12-60mm SWD f/2.8-4.0

Olympus E1 + ZD ED 12-60mm SWD
Weather resistant lens - proven during rainy 4x4 challenge photography

I bought this lens together with the Olympus E-3 in 2007. Since then the lens become my favourite with over 90% of the time usage. It covers from wide to moderate tele and also not forgetting macro capable. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this lens for its Super Grade, dust and weather resistant.

However the lens eventually suffered with aperture stuck issue in early 2009. Having serviced by Olympus Malaysia, the lens is working perfectly until extreme usage of this lens during wet and muddy Borneo Safari 2011 where the SWD was totally out of order. The symptoms began with refuse to focus from 12mm and then all the zoom ranges where the lens does not response to focus at all. Manual focus helped a bit but there was a smearing effect in the photo. The lens is now at Olympus Service Centre since April 2012 because I still couldn't decide whether to bare the cost (RM900++) to change the  SWD unit.

It is one of the biggest outdoor shows and challenges in Malaysia which comprises of the modified 4x4 challenges, rally challenges,  motocross and atv challenges. The 4x4 Adventure Club Kuala Lumpur (4x4ACKL) is again leading the event to success as the last jamboree in 2010. Kudos to 4x4ACKL for the exciting jamboree.

Behind the scene

Personally, I was fortunate to travel in Kuala Lumpur during the Malaysia 4x4 Jamboree, thus my best opportunity to take some photos of my favourite event, the 4x4 off road challenge. Most of my works for 4x4 photography are in Sabah. Photography on the 4x4 actions are not a slow motion or fear of camera gears to be in the mud. It is definitely a physical challenge to the photographer (and camera too) to get the best and safe spot to capture the action. As usual I am using my favourite Olympus E-1 with 14-42mm and Olympus-E-3 with 70-300mm. Although that I use mostly the two standard Olympus lenses, they are quite reliable. In fact, they survived since I use them in extreme 4x4 challenge condition since 2009, unlike the 12-60mm which died on its SWD recently.

Good move by the Borneo Safari team for this 22nd edition of Borneo Safari. News taken from their website.


The 1st Borneo 4WD & Outdoor Show and the Borneo Safari’s 22nd International Off-Road Challenge flag off ceremony will be hosted at Alamesra, Jalan Sulaman. Lintasan Mayang Development Sdn. Bhd., the property developer of Alamesra has confirm
ed to be Borneo Safari Venue Sponsor.

Alamesra is just 8 Km from Kota Kinabalu city and stretches over 265 acres of pristine prime land, surrounded by Sabah’s wondrous natural heritage. This world-class development respects true family values by enhancing security, encouraging neighbourlines and protecting its natural environment.

Changing our venue from Likas Sports Complex to Alamesra is a strategic move by Borneo Safari to further enhance the publicity and activities of the show with the approval from Alamesra to hold vehicle demonstrations and most importantly 2 Special Stages (No.1 & 2) at the showground’s action arena. That weekend will be action packed with not only all the latest products and services on offer but they will also be entertainments and demonstrations.

On the 27th Oct at 2 pm, 2 special stages of the international off road challenge conducted at Alamesra. This is the first time in the history of Borneo Safari that special stages started before the flag off ceremony. We believe this will give the residents and tourist at Kota Kinabalu City to truely witness Borneo Safari SS right in the City.

To top it up, a team of paragliders lead by Tengku Datuk Seri Dr. Zainal Adlin, Chairman of Sabah Tourism Board will be flying in from adjacent Crocker Range! The highlight on 28th October morning will be the flagging off ceremony of the 22nd Borneo Safari International Off Road Challenge where 180 convoy vehicles will line up for the flagging off ceremony. Other on going attractions at the show will be RC (Radio Control) demonstration, live band performances, children games, product launching and demonstrations.

Confirmed participation to the show are ARB 4x4 Accessories, Light Force, Isuzu, Land Rover, GT Radials, King Springs, DBA, Old Man Emu, Iron Man and many more international brands.

Don’t miss this fun and exciting event of the year. Entrance is free and your family will have a great weekend!
