Great portrait lens
3 weeks ago
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.
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.
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
Excerpt: Loving the weight and size of this lens. Bokeh great, shots crisp. Not found anything that don't like so far...... Bought the Vello LH-40B Dedicated Lens Hood (Silver) to go with it - but this is not worth the money - very difficult to fit - in fact have not got it to work yet!
Excerpt: It's worth 4.5 stars. All I can say is sharp. The resolving power on an E-M5 is shocking, even at pixel peeping. 5 for sharpness.Focus is fast, should say very fast. Very good in low light, not near darkness.This lens is good for more than portraits, I like the focal length on an M43 body. Better at isolating some subjects.My gripe with most Olympus Lenses is minimum focus distance. Personally, just a little more close focus would be nice.Bought this with the hood.
