Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45mm f/1.8


The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45mm f/1.8 is a beautiful Micro Four Thirds lens that is perfect for portrait shooting. The fast f/1.8 aperture lets you grab quick shots in low-light and also pleasingly blur backgrounds to emphasize your subject. Here's a...

Must have u4\/3 Lens!


This lens produces really nice images. It is fast and has a really nice rendering and bokeh. I primarily use it for photos of my children. One note is that indoors the 45mm focal length(which equates to a 90mm standard focal length) requires a fair...

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45 mm f/1.8


Great for portrait photography. Excellent bokeh. My first m43 lens that I bought for my OMD. Currently looking for lens number 2!

really fast and really sharp photos! Everyone is saying that the photos I've been taking look professional. Excellent low-light performance

It seems kind of expensive to me. I wish that there was a black version
