Olympus 45mm first impression article at Dpreview.


The new Olympus 45mm f/1.8 lens gets previewed by Dpreview (Click here): “Even at F1.8 it is sharp enough to give plenty of detail in subjects’ eyes. Just as importantly, at sensible working distances, it gives a usefully shallow depth of field on the Four Thirds format and renders out-of-focus regions rather pleasantly

Dpreview confirms what other reviewers said before. This is simply an amazing lens for the price you have to pay for it. Well done Oly!

Check the lens price and availability by clicking these sear links: Amazon, B&H, Adorama, Olympus US store, FocusCamera, eBay.

    I realy dont care with the new upcoming lumix 45 f 2.8 . Oly lens is good enough for me both size and price.

  • furb

    Ah, but does it come with the hood?

  • It’s time to stop this regional shipping mess and do worldwide shipping. Before the internet, this was okay, but now, it just leads to unhappy people… SHIP SHIP SHIP SHIP!!!!

  • SamshootsAll

    Oly wont give lens hood away anymore!!! The 12mm hood almost cost an arm & leg at $100! :( just buy whatever you like rubber or metal.
