Overview

M.Zuiko 45mm f1.8 at a Glance

The 45mm f1.8 is an affordable fixed focal length prime lens that’s bright enough to excel in low-light interiors, fast enough for pro-quality action shots, and second to none when it comes to creating the lovely defocused background effects you want in your portraits.

  • BUILT FOR BEAUTIFUL BOKEH

    Photographers who shoot a lot of portraits and still-lives are always seeking good bokeh. Lenses with relatively shallow depth of field – like the 45mm – are especially well suited to capture the combination of tack-sharp subject and beautifully soft, defocused background that exemplifies bokeh.

  • PRO-LEVEL PHOTO QUALITY

    You’ve seen a lot of professional-level photos with sharply rendered subjects and artistic defocused backgrounds. This is the lens that will help you achieve the same kind of shots. It’s especially good for portraits, but also works well for stills, action and video. In short, it’s a great addition to your Olympus photographic system.

COMPATIBLE MECHANISM

    One of this lens’s most interesting features is the unique-to-Olympus Movie & Still Compatible mechanism, or MSC. This technology provides amazingly fast – and nearly silent – autofocus operation. You’ll really notice the benefit when you play back your HD video and the only thing you hear is the ambient background noise in the scene you were filming; what you won’t hear is the sound of the lens focusing. This lens is perfect for tracking action. With MSC and the super-bright f1.8 aperture, you can film a school play or indoor sporting event in low light and still get excellent results.

Great portrait lens!
I use this lens on my EM 5 mark ii, it works really well and makes wonderful portraits. There's no distorsion and the lens creates beautiful bokeh. With the f 1.8, I can shoot easily in very low light. I use it for food photography as well ; my best pictures were taken with this lens.

Great Value
The lens is sharp light and very capable. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an economical lens that is capable of producing quality images. The lens rarely leaves my camera bag and even though I might have more expensive lenses I still keep going back to this little winner. My only issue is that it is not weather sealed but this might have caused an increase in the price.

Nice enough for the price
I've used this lens and the Olympus 75mm f1.8 and the two lenses are worlds apart, despite having the same aperture. I really wanted to like this lens for its small size and price, however it just doesn't compare to its big brother. After using the 75mm it just leaves you wanting better colors, more sharpness, and nicer bokeh. That said, when you take the price of the lens into account you realise its actually a pretty good value. This lens will be a great counterpart to one of the kit lenses, however using it with the Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 I find the photos to be so close that its not worth it.
