    The brilliant, long awaited portrait prime for µ4/3, October 18, 2011
    By 

    This review is from: Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 45mm f/1.8 Lens for Micro Four Thirds Cameras (Electronics)

    Here it is, folks: your heretofore missing µ4/3 portrait lens. And what a marvelous little gem it is.

    Why would you want this lens? Well, it’s 45mm, and it’s f/1.8, a combination which allows you to generate some serious subject isolation with its relatively shallow depth of field. This is the “DSLR blurry background look” that many people crave, and it’s very difficult to pull off with most existing µ4/3 lenses (due to their generally slow speed combined with µ4/3′s smaller-than-DSLR sensor).

    Of course, f/1.8 isn’t just there to isolate your subjects; this represents a dramatic improvement in low light performance when compared to any other native lens in this focal length. Your kit lens, for example, probably hits f/5.6 by here; this little guy lets in *three times as much light*. So you can use much faster shutter speeds and lower ISO, making low light shooting much more viable (since µ4/3 high ISO performance is lacking, fast lenses like this are crucial to make up the difference).

    So, that’s what it’s for. Now the questions: how does it perform? Is it worth the cost? Let’s look at the details.

    - form factor / exterior: it’s very small. Its length is just longer than the original Olympus kit lens and just shorter than the current kit lens (when collapsed), and the barrel is much narrower than either in diameter. This is the 3rd Olympus lens to use the new silver styling, and I must say that it looks great on an E-P3. The lens is made out of plastic, but it’s good plastic, and thus far I have no concerns about construction quality. The focus ring is massive and operates very well, much better in fact than any other Olympus µ4/3 lens that I’ve tried (presumably the Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 12mm f/2.0 would best it, but I’ve had no opportunity to use that lens yet). The large-ish front element is gorgeous.

    - image quality: well, I can tell you that it’s superb, but if you have any doubts you should look for the scientific reviews on the ‘net that give you LPMs and MTFs and all that jazz. I looked at some of these reviews and they will tell you numbers that match my experience in practice: this lens is great. It’s tack sharp even wide open, and I’ve yet to feel any inclination to stop down for sharpness. This guy is made to be shot at f/1.8; do not hesitate to do so.

    - autofocus: oh, yes, this lens focuses very quickly indeed! I’ve heard that it is slower on older bodies (I have not tried it on my old E-P2, yet) but on my E-P3 there is simply no rival. In good light this thing focuses every bit as fast as more expensive lenses on my DSLR, and with incredible precision thanks to the µ4/3 CDAF system. It’s also very quiet, making it a great choice for video, although continuous AF is still not comparable to that of a DSLR (which is a design limitation of CDAF, not this lens specifically).

    - lens hood: absent. Hmm. Well, this lens is small enough to easily shoot one-handed, so you can always shade it with your left hand. If you want a hood, it is available for a hefty premium, which leads me to my final point…

    - price: ouch. To be fair, this is a brand new lens, but the steep MSRP (which it currently sells at or even above) is really the only thing I can find to complain about. Give it a year and it will come down, perhaps, but this is a lens that I wanted to own very badly, and so I found this price acceptable.

    Bottom line:

    If you’re trying to save a buck it will surely get cheaper over time, but ultimately this is a lens that every serious µ4/3 shooter will want to own. Get this, the Panasonic LUMIX G 20mm f/1.7, and a µ4/3 body, and I dare you not to fall in love with the kit.

    With this lens, µ4/3 has finally fully arrived.

    An essential lens for Micro Four Thirds, October 10, 2011
    By 
    Amin Sabet “Amin Sabet” (Boston, MA USA) –

    This review is from: Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 45mm f/1.8 Lens for Micro Four Thirds Cameras (Electronics)

    This is a lens I have been waiting for since starting to shoot Micro Four Thirds.

    I come from a background of Canon and Nikon DSLRs, and I’ve been looking forward to the availability of a traditional “portrait lens” for the Micro 4/3 system. Olympus took their sweet time bringing out this lens, but I’m pleased to report that they got it right.

    Optically, the lens is unimpeachable. LensTip doesn’t pull any punches, and their review was glowing: [...]. If you want to see sample images from this lens, we’ve got a bunch here:[...]

    Some criticize the price of this lens compared to the Canon or Nikon 50mm f/1.8 short telephoto lenses, but those are simple designs created as normal primes for 35mm format and adapted for use on APS-C. The Olympus is built ground-up as a telephoto with a more complex design. It is priced well compared to other lenses designed as short telephoto lenses and also priced well for the performance it delivers.

    The build is plastic, which helps keep the price and weight down. It isn’t a pancake design, but it is a tiny lens.

    Some complain that no hood is included. I prefer to keep the lens as compact as possible, which means no hood for me. My only complaint is that the front “decorative ring” (which is removed to add an optional hood) comes off too easy.

    Bottom line: If you shoot Micro 4/3, buy this lens. It is outstanding!
