  • Ok while trying to make my promised picture, I found that the ring actual has a very fine bayonet type connection to the main lens (hardly seeable), so it only just had come of!  Sorry Olympus, ...
  • Thanks. When I received it the ring was mechanically ok. Sure I have played with it but no banging and no pictures. I can see no screws or bolts, so it must be or some kind of snap on construction ...
  • Thanks, No I have this lens already more than half a year (and yes unused), so that won't be possible anymore.
  • Created discussions Oly 12-40 broken?
    So my new bought and unused (I use my 17 and 45 mm instead) Oly 12-40 shows some signs of being broken. The front ring, with the markings (distance, etc.) of the lens section that doesn't come out ...
  • It was a setting thing! And yes, you are right. It takes a lot of turning, but going to try that out this evening. Probably still better than the hunting that I get in darker surroundings on ...
  • Super! Thanks!
  • Nobody any ideas? Please help! Thanks.
  • In the video mode, my OMD Em1 doesn't have autofocus with the Oly 45 MM lens. I haven't done any firmware updates since I got the camera 6 months ago. With the Oly 17mm I dont have issues and can ...
  • I fully agree with the original poster. I have the 17,45 and 75 and 12-40, and although I understand that at some point you have to step up in size, it would be so much more convenient to ...
  • Replied in RESULTS
    With all respect to your little test , I find the picture of the OMD pretty unsharp in particular on the right lower corner. Was the camera positioned perpendicular to the wall of stones or is ...
  • Ok I had my lens exchanged and below you can see the results. For anybody who was of the believe that my original version of the 45mm was good enough, had typical "portrait" sharpness or whatever, ...
  • Olympus will be happy to read that their 45 mm 1.8 is good "portrait lens", in the sense that it doesn't produce anything reasonably sharp for subjects 20ft away from the camera wide open.  Sorry ...
  • I don't think that distance plays a role in this discussion. There might be a difference in sharpness between center and edges, and for that reason you can say its a good portrait lens where edge ...
  • That will do for me! I don't think that is too much asked for. Thanks for posting these examples.
  • haha. I thought I was the only one.... Ok lens is packed and ready to be kicked back. Thank you all for your input in this Sunday afternoon discussion.
  • You must be easily satisfied. This lens has quite a DOF at the distance its focused on in this picture.There is no point where the lens is completely in focus. If you mean portrait lens as in ...
  • I am not sure I can follow you in your conclusion. The focus is on the centre point of the picture. In my opinion this centre point should be, even at 1.8, much sharper than is shown. At 2.8 ...
  • This is actually the picture that made me think something was wrong with my lens.
  • Yes at 2.8 it didn't seem to bad in your example. Problem is that I also have the 2.8 zoom 12-40. If the 45mm is really no that good at 1.8, I don't see a point of owning one, I can use the 2.8 ...
  • With midpoint focusing I meant focus on the centre point in the pictures, so on the vertical column in the middle of the picture. Thanks for asking.
