Very Disappointed in IQ

  • Summary: I purchased this lens after to use as a small, portable, lens on my E-M1 expecting great image quality based on hundreds of reviews. The image quality I have experienced is mediocre at best, on par with the 75-300 V1 zoom. Both my 12-40 zoom and my 75mm are significantly sharper than this 45. I will be returning this lens and consider it to be a sub-par performer. Possibly there are manufacturing issues with it?

  • Summary: Initially i thought this lens was wonderful but it 'flares' (I've forgotten the correct term...normally happens when sunlight causes that smear of rainbow light) - I noticed it immediately but thought perhaps this was normal but I'm now thinking it is pretty much useless for what I need it for as these flares appear all the time. From car headlights, to the moon, etc etc I may have just got a faulty lens though becuase no-one else is mentioning this.....have I?

Pour du portrait il y a mieux et moins cher

  • Summary: J'attendais beaucoup de cet objectif et j'ai été très déçu. Certes il est lumineux mais il a un piqué trés moyen à pleine ouverture comparé au sigma 60mm 2.8 qui est moins cher. Côté bokeh j'arrive à obtenir un flou prononcé presque identique avec le sigma et bien plus artistique à mon goût (plus de distorsions et pas juste du flou); en plus, le fait que le sigma ait un meilleur piqué (pas loin de l'olympus 75mm c'est dire...) fait mieux ressortir le flou arrière.
