Excerpt: I purchased this lens in preparation for our newborn, I wanted a lens that wouldn't require the use of a flash indoors. It did not deliver. I was able to take close up pics outside and blur the background, but keeping the lens wasn't worth this feature.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Summary: Owning an olympus makes me cry. I own 5 lenses (2 kit lenses that came with my camera) and 3 primes. The 50MM prime is the only one of the 5 that is worth getting. A lot of the other lenses are too expensive to purchase ($1000+) so i figured investing in more primes was a good idea since the 50mm...
Summary: I was very excited to try this little lens for those times I needed speed and lightness. Grabbing it out of the box, the first thing I noticed how tiny the front element was compared to my other Zuikos'. It said it was a f/2.8...WoW! How did they do that? Second thing...No lens hood!
