(1) I can use Low ISO levels @ wide Apertures that I have not done before using my regular Zooms. (2) Very natural Focal length, what I see in my eye falls into this focal range. (3) Great for taking portriats of you husband/wife/GF/BF/or love ones on tables while waiting for food.

Looking at it from this angle you would easily mistake the Olympus 45mm black edition for something that's more expensive, like a Sony Carl Zeiss Plannar 85mm F/1.4. In black it's super shiny and in the black limited edition is very pretty. Along side my Olympus 12mm F/2 all in silver, it's hard to tell which one of these lenses I actually prefer looking at. Announced in the Summer of 2011, this lens has been around a while with its 2x crop factor it comes out at being a 90mm equivalent lens, ...

small,lightweight, pocketable. Crisp sharp, fast, no resonable barrel. My favorite for portraits @ f 2..3.5 with m4/3 counting down is the plastic housing. MINOX did better plastics. I might would give it a 4* if the deco ring would not fall off every now and then. I know it is not a bug, it is a feature, as I can buy a new deco ring.

1.8光圈下的逆光成像效果不错,稍感偏软,拍摄人像非常讨好眼球。

So small and lightweight you can take it anywhere in a pocket. Optically it's superb and far better than expected for the price. Ideal for portraits but mainly used for landscapes and architecture where it's ideal for isolating detail. A great buy.

A really good lens in every respect I can think of. When you finally get so sick of manually focusing your favourite 50mm lens on a m4/3 adapter that you stump up the cash for this, you'll be amazed at the speed of AF and the sharpness right from maximum aperture. The first time I took this lens outside, I was able to capture a sharp photo of two cyclists riding almost directly towards me at dusk. Its close focus capability is not at all bad at exactly half a meter, but I would love it even ...

I have had this lens for 3 days now and so far I find it OK. No sharper than the 20 mm f1.7, focus well in good light only, does not seem to appreciate low light too much. Tiny and unimpressive-looking.. One can't expect miracles from these m4/3 lenses, but within its limits it delivers a good job. Not expensive, buy it for its 1.8 otherwise a regular kit zoom like the 14-45 does as good if not better at 45 .
