Sharp portrait lens with close-up opportunities

Leif Ruergård, Amazon
23 July 2014
  • Summary: The optics are very good, it is an extremely sharp and well build weather sealed lens. But it's a pity that it isn't a true macro-lens (1:1), and I miss a magnification scale. On distance photography the focus is quick enough for me but it should be a focus stop button.

  • Excerpt: Very sharp lens as nearly everyone reports. Coupling with EX-25 extension tube increases versatility. Excellent addition to my 4/3 lens collection.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh

Great lens, but somewhat pricey

  • Excerpt: Using this lens for products shots and portraits. Some of the reviews indicated slow or inaccurate focus -- I have not experienced that. Very happy with focus performance and image quality. The macro ability is a fun and useful bonus.

Superb Optical Quality

Noreaster, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This lens would be easily 5 stars with a different focusing system. I'm a bit surprised Olympus would use a focusing system like this on such a high quality optical instrument. I like to shoot insects, flowers and still life. I have some very good results both hand held and with a tripod.

Great product

Penguin Palace Photography, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: My pictures are looking just as I imagined they would and this lens is the reason. I'm sure the pictures that have turned out less than satisfactory have been due to user error and not because of the lens itself. My only complaint is it's function in low light.
