Olympus ED 50mm on E-520
May 14, 2012

Hi guys,

I am planning to buy an Olympus ED 50mm f/2.0 prime lens for my E-520 DSLR.

Just wanted a quick confirmation whether the lens would work with the E-520 or not?

I am ordering it online and hence wanted to be sure...

Cheers,
Bhavin

If your talking about the 43rds 50 f2.0 macro, it not only works but is one of the finest lenses made for 43rds.

That is a must combo. If you're planning on floral or bugs close ups, that will give you some sharp images. Portraits too and street scenery.....heck, just throw anything else at it and it'll make it work.......

Have a look on the FlashCamera website (Scotland), great price and service / delivery I ordered the Oly 50mm f2.0 macro lens for myself from there last week.

I use that combination from time to time. You should get excellent results with it. What other lenses do you have?

Check out this website ("Robin Wong Blog") for most one person tests of Olympus "street tests' using

-E-520-- E-5 -- OMD-5. . Robin has been using Olympus since 2005. He was chosen by "OLYMPUS" to do pre release testing in Malaysia of the E-5 and OMD-5. He shoots mostly with 50 mm Macro and 25 mm Pancake on E-5 .I recently spent several days in Kuala Lumpur with Robin and had some of his "shutter therapy sessions". His blog has a lot of (real world) reviews of equipment he has used. A lot of good reading and viewing here. It influenced my move on from E-520 to E-5 and to purchase more lenses including 50mm macro.
