Reviews and Problems with Olympus ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 35-100mm F2.0
Showing 1-10 of 44
The best ever lens for Olympus 4/3 camera.
4 June 2013
Summary: This is an incredible piece of photographic equipment. F 2.0 through out the range, sharp and clear beyond anything I have ever seen. Had to save up for a long time to get it but worth every penny for sure.
Summary: I purchased this OM-2SP as an adjunct to my Nikon film bodies. This body came with a 28mm 2.8, 50mm 1.8 and 80-200mm zoom at a price that was too good to pass up. I love the spot metering and full manual control in addition to the full program and aperture priority settings on this Olympus model. This camera is much smaller and lighter than my Nikon F3 with comparable build quality.
Yes it is big - however - razor sharp images. Highly Recommended

Summary: The 35-100 f2.0 lens is one of Olympus's Super High Grade lens (or from the top shelf). I purchased this to use for wedding photography. There is no other comparable product for the 4/3's line. It is big, it is heavy but the images are razor sharp. There is a tripod mount on the lens, and for portraiture - a tripod would be a handy addition. I purchased this to use on a 4/3's system (Olympus E5 - with grip) and have found it to easy to handle.
Summary: I purchased this lens after purchasing the 14-35 over six months ago. I own the 50-200, which is a great lens, but the 35-100 exceeds it with great bokeh, sharpness and contrast. Did I say Sharpness? Super sharp. I use it every day in my studio both indoors and out. I love the colors outside. I couldn't live without this lens in my bag. Worth everything I paid for it.
Summary: looks wery solid and nice in hand. i coold jus use the manual mode , wich is only with spot metering and the auto mode worked something like 4 stops down. and the shooter hanged if you use speeds bellow 1/1o of sec. but it was told about this problem befor i bought it so if i need to use auto shooter i use mi om 2n chrome wichi still like more than others. the most noiseless shooter among the om-s so long.
Great little 35mm SLR with plenty of lens options(used on E-bay)

Summary: I have four of the OM2s cameras. 2 that work and 2 for parts. I intend to use them for a long time. The spot metering works well when the back lighting is to bright. The only problem I have is that people run the price of parts cameras to high. .
Summary: This lens, along with the 14-35mm are really the only two lenses you need for a day out shooting. It also works quite well with the EC-14 that I own, and I suspect the EC-20 as well, with a one and two stop "penalty" being the only price for using these. This lens provides sharpness end to end, and the colors come out of the lens quite real, with not much post processing required.
Summary: This is an outstanding zoom lens for the 4/3 system. I use this lens often, second only to the 14-35 mm lens I leave on the camera for general use. It is outstanding as a portrait lens especially when used outdoors; the shallow depth of field allows for a pleasing bokeh. I use it primarily on the E3 body; this combination is weather resistant and I have used it in the rain and in all sorts of foul weather and adverse conditions. The optics are fantastic.
Summary: I purchased this lens around six months ago after purchasing the 14-35 f2 and discovering the amazing quality of the SHG lenses. I had used the 50-200 lens since 2005 but this lens is superior. While it does not have the zoom range the 50-200 has, the quality of the images are superior. Love the bokeh, sharpness, contrast and quick focus. I can't imagine getting better quality than this. No complaints, no regrets, well worth the money spent.
