  • Summary: This lens produces beautiful creamy bokeh when shot wide open and delivers that elegant signature Olympus look. For m43 it is certainly one of the best bang-for-buck lens available.

Great Lens!

  • Excerpt: This is a must have prime lens for the micro 4/3 system and the second I purchased behind the 20mm f1.7. Great for portraits and short telephoto. I switched to the micro 4/3 system primarily because of size and weight and this lens is a great example of quality in a small package.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Image quality, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Size
  • Cons: No lens hood

  • Excerpt: I use this lens on my OMD-M10 whenever I wish to limit DOF and it has nice bokeh. It is sharp, contrasty and produces beautiful colors. Everything I've come to expect from Zuiko lenses.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Tough To Attach

  • Summary: Very very good portrate lense! Especially for $300. But the Big Brother (75mm 1.8) will take your skills to the next level.

Sharp, great in low light, smooth

  • Excerpt: Very glad I purchased this lens to use with my Oly e-PM2. 45mm is great for portraits, outdoor shooting, and it's fast. Getting better shots of the kids and sports now. All the reviews describing beautiful bokeh and great shots wide open are right on. I typically keep this lens on my camera all the time, but it's tough for close-ups, but that's not why I purchased it.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh

A really bright and beautiful lens.

Rob Hamm, Amazon

  • Summary: A must have. This is a perfect portrait length lens with gorgeous blur. Simply put, this line is tack sharp edge to edge at 1.8. It produces beautiful images and is well worth the money. I'm a wedding photographer and I proudly use the M43 system (I switched over from Sony a77/99). This lens is my go-to portrait lens.

Excellent portrait prime lens

Rob Chang, Amazon
23 August 2014
  • Summary: I got this to complement the Zuiko 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro on the E-M1 body. I wasn't satisfied with the amount of DOF control I had with the 12-40, since its DOF was roughly equivalent to f/5.6 for 35mm, and that isn't quite shallow enough to isolate the subject from some backgrounds at certain distances.

Good lens

  • Summary: This is a fixed lens, meaning you cannot zoom in/out, but is fantastic for macro pictures, groups of people, and packs well.
