Great resolution and focus control

  • Summary: I use this lens for detailed landscapes - flowers and such - along with portraits. So far works great as a street lens and for controlled focus situations.

Tiny package Big Image Quality

Robert C. Gallagher "bobbyC", Amazon

  • Summary: It's hard to imagine a lens of this quality 45mm (90mm equivalent) and f/1.8 in nthe full frame Canon or Nikon world weight and sizing like this beaut! And the cost would be at least 2X. That's why I traded my Cano full frame gear for a Olympus EM1 where the stabilization in in the body - hence the lens are small, less expensive and the $'s spent are for image quality!

Excellent when used as intermediate distance telephoto

  • Summary: Have not yet used this (90mm focal length equivalent) lens for portraits but found it excellent to take photos of musicians and bands at an outdoor music event where I could use my feet to zoom in and out. The lens is a lot easier to use than either of the kit lenses. Backgrounds were nicely blurred using the lower f-stops. Onward to making imore nformal portraits.

Supposed to be one of the sharpest MFT lenses. But not worrking for me.

  • Summary: This lens has nearly universal good reviews. For instance check out Robin Wongs Blog. This is the main lens he uses, and his pictures are insanely sharp. But my 45MM was not very shrap. This was my 5th lens from Olympus, but I have sent it back. I also have the 17MM f1.8 lens, and it takes sharp beautiful pictures. And the 17MM is supposed to be on the soft side. So comparing my 17MM to this lens, this lens lost out.

A lovely lens

Joe Riehl "joefromla", Amazon

  • Summary: Just used this lens to take portraits at a local festival, and it was flawless. My customers were pleased and so was I. Easy to focus on the face and blur the background, so there is nothing to distract from the subject. Nice looking lens, solidly built. Very fine for the price.

Great Low Light Lens

John W, Amazon
5 January 2014
  • Summary: I've only had this lens for a couple of days now, but I've been very happy with the performance so far. I used it for some simple low light (didn't want to use a flash) family photos and also some indoor youth basketball games. The basketball photos were really good because I could bump up the speed to freeze the action. I had been using the 40-150 zoom for sports, but I had to use a lower speed and a lot of the action blurred indoors.

Performs far better than you would think by looking at it

Chris Wright, Amazon

  • Summary: Optically, you can't beat it. A great portrait lens. It doesn't look or feel that impressive, though. If you have feelings of inadequacy or lens envy, then get the black one and buy the hood.
