a wonderful M34 prime lense

Summary: A very sharp fast lense with wonderful bokeh bought for the Olympus EM-1. Much cheaper than many other lenses of this optical quality and so great value. I agree with Ming Thein who says, But never mind all that, how does it perform? In a word, brilliantly. It’s one of my favourite lenses for Micro Four Thirds. If I had to describe it in a word, it would be ‘transparent’.
Summary: I use this lens with a Panasonic GF2 camera, mainly for portrait shots. It takes beautiful sharp photos with a nice, shallow depth of field. It excels at outdoor portraits. I was shocked by how much different (and better) the photos from this lens are than the ones with my 20MM and kit lenses.
Summary: This lens has received great reviews everywhere on the net for a good reason. It is small, light and takes breathtakenly sharp photos from edge to edge from F4 on. You can get very nice bokeh and colors are rich and saturated. For a portrait lens you cannot get much better and it is also a great take everywhere lens too and is mighty fast at F1.8. A must have for micro 4/3 cameras!
This lens was like getting a whole camera upgrade!

Summary: I cannot overstate how much I love this lens on my Oly E-PM1. The kit zoom lens was fine, and the images I got were fine. But getting great images in less than ideal circumstances was not so easy. I was always especially disappointed with the low light performance. Well, enter this beauty! With a much wider aperture range and the quality glass that this prime sports, stunning images pop onto my screen with every click of the shutter!
Summary: No one on the internet has a bad thing to say about this fantastic lens and I am no exception! It is a superb portrait lens and my camera, a Pen EP3 is not worth having without this lens at the very least......I am saving up money to buy the sister lens of this 45mm.....the great but very expensive 12mm F2. These two lenses are all you need (along with with a zoom) to bring you up to the standards of much more expensive full on DSLR's!
Summary: I've just recently switched over from a Canon to the Olympus. When I did I knew this needed to be the first lens I would add to my bag. It have not disappointed in the least. The lens is crisp, fast and small. An absolute must for an affordable lens to get all those amazing portrait pictures you've been dreaming of.
Summary: Absolutely love this lens... At 90mm (35mm eq) it's the perfect portrait lens and it's light. I usually keep it in my pocket so I don't have to carry a bag. If you shoot micro 4/3rds I definitely recommend this lens.
