Customer Reviews

sharp and portablenot too narrow of a field of view to use around town, but very sharp and focuses fast. 4.5 stops of light greater than the kit zoom! (kit zoom does 40mm @ f5.6). I tested the benefit of stops of light vs zoom: Better results handheld photographing owls at night with this, than the kit 40-150 @ 150mm, even though the 150 is 3x the zoom and thus I have to crop the 45mm. Not as sharp as my 12-40 pro and not weather sealed, but at 1/3 of the price, 1/3 of the weight, and half the length, I say this one is more of a bargain for those who take their camera on casual adventures. On the other hand, I find the Pro's gimicky focus clutch incredibly useful, and love it's hard stops at the end of focus. Also the Pro feels like good build quality, and is often available for around 2x the cost of this lens. For my use, I wish there was something in the middle. The focus and the weather sealing of the Pro, but with size [and lesser image quality, which I sometimes don't find useful] of the Premium (the 45mm f1.8). As for me, I put a high priority on small and light, for if I lose the motivation to photograph if I have to carry a bag. HTH!5Very happyI am constantly amazed at what this tiny little lens can do. I am really enjoying playing with it and I love the creamy bokeh I get. It works as well as some of my Canon lenses that are several time more in price.5You Need One. You Really Do.I can barely believe that I got such a HUGELY AMAZING LENS for such a tiny price. The vintage Minolta prime in my kit gives me a similarly luscious bokeh, but this thing features a shorter focal length and has autofocus as well - and to top that off it weighs next to nothing. The little beastie is damned near perfect. I treasure it and I use it constantly. Forget about the Nokton unless you need its extreme speed, and skip the Nocticron unless you have a huge budget. This Zuiko will take your images to exquisite places no matter where you go.5Good lens for the moneyI bought the international version which is $100 less than US version. It is working good, quality is good as well. It is f1.8, considering the MFT sensor, don't expect result as good as a full frame f1.8. Since the lens size is small, obviously the light getting inside the lens is less. For a MFT lens it is good, produces nice back grounds / fore ground blur, and sharp images in low ISO. In higher ISO above 640 the results are not good. Good for outside portrait shots with good light.5You probably already know you're going to love itYou absolutely can't go wrong with this lens. I had been reading great reviews for some time, but I already had the 12-40 PRO, the 25mm and the 75mm. The 75mm, while an amazing lens, is difficult to use inside, where I end up taking most of the photos of my kids, and so it wasn;t getting used enough. The 12-40 is great, but any extra light I can grab is a help indoors with young kids. When I saw the price on the import version of this lens, I figured I had nothing to lose. What an understatement. I've been sold from the very first picture. Nothing that hasn't already been said: small, sharp, fast, light, and a great value. If you're on the fence, take the plunge. I can't imagine anyone who's remotely curious about this lens being anything but thrilled.5Nice portrait lensVery satisfied with the bokeh and image quality for a 4/3 lens. I 'm a canon full frame shooter, but my daughter has a small olympus 4/3 body and this lens was bought for portraits. We've obtained some beautiful shots and although the images are not as sharp at 100% as my camera, I'm shooting equipment that is 10x the price! if you're looking for a portrait lens with good quality at a reasonable price in this format, this is a great choice. It's also quite petite, which works well on the smaller camera body size.5Safe buy, portrait prime lens My first prime lens and it is incredible! It brings new life to my photos and has quick focusing in autofocus, smooth manual focus and solid feel. Because of the crop factor of M4/3, it is a little tight on the subjects @about 8' away. Makes for outstanding portraits and head shots, but I will need 17mm or 25mm for couples and environment shots. Also, shooting with a wide aperture in light areas (for bokeh) can be challenging due to overexposure, even at 1/4000 shutter speed, but an ND filter helps mitigate that. User inexperience aside, the lens itself is outstanding and performs flawlessly with one note: it is very tight on the mount compared to my other lenses. I don't know if this is experienced by others, but is what I ran into with mine and it took slightly more effort to set into place with no harm shown to either the camera nor lens after several uses. 5Excellent portrait prime lensI got this to complement the Zuiko 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro on the E-M1 body. I wasn't satisfied with the amount of DOF control I had with the 12-40, since its DOF was roughly equivalent to f/5.6 for 35mm, and that isn't quite shallow enough to isolate the subject from some backgrounds at certain distances. With the 45mm f/1.8, the DOF is about f/3.5 in 35mm, and that's close enough to f/2.8 visually (I did comparison tests with my 5D Mark III and 24-70mm f/2.8 L II), which is good enough for most of what I shoot. If I need DOF even more shallow than that, I'll just use my Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 with an adapter on the E-M1 (no autofocus though).The 45mm f/1.8 is quite sharp wide-open, and autofocuses just as quickly as the 12-40 Pro, while being very tiny and extremely light. I only use it to shoot wide-open for the shallow DOF look, and due to the focal length being about 90mm in 35mm equivalent, it's too long for most indoor shooting situations unless it's a large space, and you'd have to be quite far from the subject to get the full length figure in the shot, so that means you'd be shooting mostly head/bust/waist length portraits with it. Outdoors, if you are doing typical street style shooting, it'll be too long for a lot of situations, which is why I consider this mainly a specialty lens for portraits. It's not close-focusing so its macro capability is quite limited too.For the purpose it serves, it's an excellent lens at a great price. One of the best bang for the buck in the world of camera lenses.5My favorite lens, image quality and extra stops of light are invaluable. Great for video as well.I pair this with my Panasonic G7 and was my first lens after my kit lens. The Image quality is night and day. The extra 2 stops of light from the kit lens is extremely helpful, and 45mm focal length is perfect for portraits or capturing small room events. I'm currently renting the 75mm 1.8 and honestly the 45mm is on par with that lens save the extra focal length (though I've only looked at the images through my camera.Worth the cost. It also works extremely well for video and doesn't make an awkward focusing sound like the 17mm 1.8.Only downside for me is that it's not image stabilized, which hurts on the G7 body but I can't really fault Olympus for that. Buy this lens.5Best bang-for-the-buck portrait lens on the marketFor the money, I can't think of any portrait lens on the market as capable as this little gem. I have tested it side by side with lenses costing eight times as much, and the differences are slight. I've seen professionals make a great deal of money using this lens, and I have done the same. Is it weather-sealed? No. Is it perfect? No. Is it the best lens you can buy? No. Is it the bang-for-the-buck leader in the micro 4/3 world? Absolutely.5Superb Portrait Lens This lens is incredible for taking portraits with bokeh effect. I was stunned how professional the pictures of my daughter's graduation portraits turned out. On my Olympus EP-5, it installs and removes easily with a snug fit and has a tank-like metal build. And for the price, it's a bargain. So far, this is my favorite m4/3 lens. 5Love the lens already. Bought IMPORT model and so far am happy.I bought the IMPORT model and wanted to comment on it since I haven't seen many reviews referencing it.I figured for the amount of money I save on the IMPORT vs the regular, I would self-insure and hope that it worked (and continues to work).I haven't had the lens for very long but I already love the pictures it's taking. The 1.8 is killer for my house which is pretty low-light all of the time.I didn't give this lens 5 stars because it doesn't hook onto my Olympus very gracefully. The kit lens that comes with my om-d e-m10 attaches and disconnects buttery smooth, but this lens goes on ok, and is very hard to disconnect. Hopefully, this will improve over time.I'll try to update the review in a few months with some new info as I use the lens more.4
