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. It's important to put things into perspective though: the 45mm f1.8 is a good portrait lens, but it won't match the minimum depth of field delivered by a 50mm f1.8 on an APS-C camera and especially...
  • 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

14 January 2012
  • 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. On the latter, it was extremely quick, very much in the same league as an SLR camera with a premium AF lens attached. This is truly impressive performance for a mirrorless combo.

M.Zuiko Digital 45 mm f/1.8

7 September 2011
  • Excerpt: The Micro 4/3 system, due to the Olympus and Panasonic cooperation, has been developing very fast; so fast that currently we have over 20 original system lenses with a whole variety of parameters at our disposal. Some of the newest ones are two new fixed-focal Olympus devices, which were presented 30 June 2011. We think here about the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 12 mm f/2.0 ED and the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45 mm f/1.8.
  • Cons: pity the lens is not made entirely of metal.

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45mm f/1.8

10 June 2014
  • Conclusion: Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45mm f/1.8 — это абсолютный “must have” для обладателей камер Micro 4/3. Объектив обладает доступной на фоне многих своих собратьев ценой и очень высоким для этой цены качеством изображения. Он резок с открытой диафрагмы, имеет низкий уровень хроматических аберраций, которые к тому же легко контролируются диафрагмированием, хорошо держит контровый свет. Но главное — боке у Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45mm f/1.8 очень приятное и мягкое.
  • Pros: компактный размер;, высокая светосила;, универсальное фокусное расстояние;, быстрая и бесшумная фокусировка;, высокая резкость с открытой диафрагмы;, хроматические аберрации уходят при диафрагмировании;, хорошо держит контровый свет;, мягкое и приятное размытие фона;, малая дистанция фокусировки;, доступная цена.
  • Cons: на открытой диафрагме присутствуют хроматические аберрации.

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45mm F1,8 MSC

23 April 2012
  • 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 kisfilmes 50 mm-eseknek.
