  • Excerpt: this 45 is one of the two or three Oly primes that I feel are essential to your kit. great focal length, great image quality, perfect for walking around and isolating subjects in the environment.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Love the lens already. Bought IMPORT model and so far am happy.

  • Summary: I bought the IMPORT model and wanted to comment on it since I haven't seen many reviews referencing it. I figured for the amount of money I save on the IMPORT vs the regular, I would self-insure and hope that it worked (and continues to work). I haven't had the lens for very long but I already love the pictures it's taking. The 1.8 is killer for my house which is pretty low-light all of the time.

Great portrait lens

ERIC, Amazon
5 November 2014
  • Summary: Great portrait lens, i expected faster at night but globally satisfy i will take the 25 mm because for indoor, this one is too much 'zoomed in" during the day : great At night or in low light condition: not that fast to focus (it could take almost 2 seconds with an epl5 in city night condition)

Liked the camera but have an issue with fitting it ...

  • Summary: I have Olympus OMD-EM10. Liked the camera but have an issue with fitting it to my camera. Seems like it has resistance when I try to turn and lock it in place. Does anyone have this similar issue? Am afraid of ruining other parts of the camera if there is frequent change of lens.

Sharp lens - a bit expensive for plastic.

  • Summary: Lens is sharp and autofocus is rapid even in fairly dim conditions. It is a small lens, good for portability with a few other primes if you are not into zoom. Biggest complaints are the lens is expensive for a plastic body lens - on the one hand it is very light and small BUT I wonder how long it will last in travel conditions and heavy use. Overall I think this is a good addition to the 18mm and 25mm fixed lenses from Olympus.

Another happy customer.

  • Summary: I was a little worried buying straight from Japan no warranty. I guess they call this gray market. Lens works fine. Great for portraits.

Great lens

17 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Great, small, high quality lens. Focus is super fast and quiet. Images are of high quality. I prefer prime lenses and this one is a super performer in a very small form factor. my copy takes a bit of force to mount it in the bayonet - not sure if all versions of this lens have the same issue, but it take much more force than with my Oly 17mm f1.8. It's hard to be critical of this lens, but weather sealing on these Oly primes would be a nice feature.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, High Quality Image, Lightweight, Versatile focal length
  • Cons: Tough To Attach
