VERY GOOD LENS

Jerry, olympusamerica.com
21 July 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this lens about 5 months ago, and have used it on my E-500, OMD E-M5, and the E-5. This is really a fantastic lens; colors really Pop off the screen (or print), Contrast is corner to corner, and I see no distortion. And the bokeh is impressive. The price is reasonable, and the quality is there; get this lens. You will love it.

EXCELLENT MACRO LENS, GREAT BOKEH

Jerry, olympusamerica.com
21 July 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this lens about 5 months ago, and have used it on my E-500, OMD E-M5, and the E-5. This is really a fantastic lens; colors really Pop off the screen (or print), Contrast is corner to corner, and I see no distortion. And the bokeh… I submitted a couple of shots in the November 2013 Gallery, and the bokeh in them was (for me) captivating; and their bokehs were shot at f/4.0 and f/5.6. I didn’t have to use f/2.8 or f/2.0 to get good results.

Superb lens -- macro, portrait, or general purpose

  • Summary: In combination with my E-620, this "portrait" length DSLR lens delivers the highest resolution and best ergonomics I have ever experienced. In fact, if you can forego zoom capability, it will probably become your default lens. More information is available at dpreview.com.

My GO-TO Lense

Ckraft, olympusamerica.com
21 July 2012
  • Summary: I have used this lense for almost 2 years. I love the fact I can take pictures in low light without a flash. I have other lenses but it seems this is the one I tend to use the most. It does take some getting used to if you are used to a zoom lense but it is worth it.

What a beautiful lens!

Melcuellar, olympusamerica.com
1 March 2012
  • Summary: I've bought this lens for it's typical properties which are mainly for macro and portrait photography. Up to now, I am impressed EVERY time of the results! The depth, perspective and quality are somewhat not comparable to a standard lens. Of course, since that it is a 50mm, you have to be ready to "walk around" your subject instead of using a tripod, but the image stabilisator of Olympus camera combined with this lens will create a clear, sharped edge and wonderful...

This lens just makes everything better

Ashley, olympusamerica.com
7 September 2011
  • Summary: I had been using my Olympus E-500 body for about 3-4 years with the provided kit lenses. While I love those lenses and what they have given me in the past, I desperately wanted something that would give me that gorgeous bokeh that comes with a smaller depth of field. I also wanted something that I could use indoors more successfully without a flash (although my Olympus Fl 36-R flash, bought at the same time, helped out majorly as a bounce flash) My expectations were...

In a league few can match.

Yukihyo, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I guess the only lens you can directly compare this to is the equally brilliant Canon 135mm f2, both being stunning all-round performers. Beautiful color rendition; high contrast; fabulous bokeh, I could go on, but it all just adds up to a first rate piece of work that, while pricey, is close to being worth every cent. A lens that lives up to to its expectations. Brilliant.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, High contrast, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction, Very Sharp
  • Cons: A little Expensive, Heavy

Great Macro Lens

Bill, olympusamerica.com
19 July 2011
  • Summary: I use this mostly as a macro lens in conjunction with the ring flash. It does a stellar job with that, especially with flowers. I have also been happy with it as a portrait lens for indoor use; for outdoor portraits I prefer my 35-100 Zuiko zoom lens. Can take a little time for focusing but that is expected for a multipurpose lens like this.
