Q & As

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stunning!!! As with previous reviewer I bought this after reading and watching dozens of reviews on the internet, YouTube etc. and can honestly say that this is one of those lenses that come along once in a generation that ticks all the boxes for the photographer who likes to take portraits. It is amazingly sharp at all levels, colour rendition is great, focusing is ultra fast and accurate, size and weight are ideal for MFT and it is very reasonably priced! No mft user should be without this lens, it is an absolute must. Free delivery from John Lewis, next day if you choose to collect from local waitrose as I did, plus 2 year guarantee. Whats not to like? 5 star product. 06 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb! Looking for something other than the stock lens supplied with my recently purchased OMD, I chose this after reading hundreds of reviews all commenting on its sharpness and ability to throw the background of photographs into a blur, despite it being made of plastic it deserves its reputation as one of the best lenses for the money you can buy. It is brilliant and I would have no hesitation in recommending this item to anybody who likes to take portraits. 28 May 2013
