cameralabs[1]

Sentiment Score 64%
Reviewers from cameralabs have found the following***:
This delivers telephoto coverage equivalent to 150mm with a bright f1.8 focal ratio that makes it ideal for serious portrait work, along with picking out finer details in landscapes and urban environments. Despite the robust construction it’s not splash or dust proof; owners of Panasonic bodies should also know that like all Olympus lenses there’ll have to shoot at sufficiently fast shutter speeds or on a tripod to avoid shake.

Pros
  • High quality, metal-bodied prime lenses
  • Excellent telephoto coverage equivalent to 150mm with a bright f1.8 focal ratio
Cons
  • No optical stabilization
  • High price tag
  • Not splash or dust proof

Reviewers from dpreview have found the following***:
Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45mm F1.8 is a great lens for portraiture. The 75mm is expected to sell for more than twice the price of the 45mm. With its 150mm-equivalent field of view it's a little bit longer than the traditional 85-135mm range.

Pros
  • F1.8 maximum aperture
  • Good image quality
  • Good build quality
Cons
  • Not suitable for portraiture
