Q & As

Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 45mm f/1.8G Standard Lens 5 5 1 1
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
