A great little (and I do mean *little*) macro lens,
This review is from: Olympus MSC ED M. 60mm f/2.8 Lens (Electronics)
This is a fantastic micro 4/3 successor to Olympus' impressive but now dated 50mm f/2.0 macro lens for 4/3 cameras. Small, light, and fast to focus, it handles well on all the micro 4/3 bodies I could find to test it on. It produces sharp images with little distortion and smooth, circular bokeh in out-of-focus parts of the frame. Unlike all other macro lenses currently available for the system, this lens is fully weather sealed -- put it on a weather-sealed micro 4/3 camera, and you're ready for the outdoors.
As to features, it's got a focus limiter switch (although it's a bit tricky to use with gloves on), a scale showing your macro magnification and focusing distance, and can be set at the lens to a 1:1 macro magnification. Oh, and it's got a video-rated focusing motor, so you won't hear the lens focusing in your movies.

If the gloves are made of high friction leather (and not slippery cloth), you can use friction against the surface of the rotary wheel to easily turn it. You won't have to bother with its knurled edge, which I find a little tricky to turn with your finger. You have to pretty much use your fingernails. Leather gloves actually make it much easier.
