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

  • 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

So far so good

  • 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!
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight

It rarely gets sharper

Sandia Keith, Adorama

  • 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.<br /><br />Focus is fast, should say very fast. Very good in low light, not near darkness.<br /><br />This lens is good for more than portraits, I like the focal length on an M43 body. Better at isolating some subjects.<br /><br />My gripe with most Olympus Lenses is minimum focus distance.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight

Nice lens

  • Excerpt: This is a nice lens. It's sharp and fast focusing. The only thing that bothers me about it is the plain plastic build. But the price was good and the pictures are great so it's still a keeper.
  • Pros: Lightweight
