Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45mm f/1.8 Review

What Digital Camera
20 February 2013
  • Summary: In short, although the 45mm f/1.8 lens is a stunning and well-priced lens it cannot match the exquisite feel of its 12mm f/2 stable-mate. Nevertheless, this is the first lens ever to hit 0.5 cycles-per-pixel and that alone secures its place in WDC hall-of-fame for lens tests.

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45mm 1:1.8

Camera Labs
1 March 2012
  • Summary: With an effective focal length of 90mm and a maximum aperture of f1.8, the lens is ideal for portrait work and can deliver sharp detail on the subject with a satisfyingly blurred background behind it. Likewise for closer subjects down to the nearest focusing distance of 0.5m.
  • Pros: Superb image quality. Sharp right into the corners at f4., f1.8 focal ratio ideal for shallow depth of field (relative to MFT lenses)., Great value for money., Incredibly small and light., No compatibility issues to report on Panasonic or Olympus bodies.
  • Cons: Modest closest focusing distance of 0.5m means it's no macro lens., Lens hood not supplied as standard - it's an optional extra., Lack of optical stabilisation may be an issue for Panasonic owners., No weather-sealing.

Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 45mm f/1.8 - Review / Lens Test

30 May 2012
  • Excerpt: At the first glance, the build quality of the lens is very good as it is assembled with very tight tolerances. However, keep in mind that this is an "out of the box" impression and that we can't make any statements about the long term durability of the lens.

  • Excerpt: We tested the focus speed of this lens on two different camera bodies, including the older Olympus E-PL2 and the brand new E-PL3. On the former, focus acquisition was pleasantly fast, but not instant.

  • Summary: Kipróbáltuk az Olympus m43 rendszerhez készült 45 mm-es (90 mm ekv.) portré objektívét, mely kiváló fényerőt kínál. Tesztünkből az is kiderül, hogy portrézáson kívül még más célra is használható, valamint fény derül arra is, hogy F1,8-on használható képe van-e, vagy hasonlóan erősen lágy, mint a...
