Customer Reviews of the Zuiko Lens ED 50mm f2.0 Macro 1:2 (Reconditioned)

Lovely portrait lens
I bought this lens via Kijiji from a local man who wanted to monetise his too-big stock of lenses. I use it on an EM-10 with an adapter, which results in a weight of about 360 grams, a bit heavier than I'd like, but the results are excellent. It's also a little slower than the current very fast digital lenses that Olympus is putting out, but again, its price and the results make it well worth the extra care needed with focusing. I use it for portraits and close-ups, and the bokeh is creamy and looks great. I would certainly recommend this lens as an additional lens for a selection of glass that already includes a good zoom (I use the 12-40mm f2.8) and maybe a longer-distance zoom (40-150 maybe). Any time I put photos taken with this lens on Facebook, I get compliments about the shots, so that can't be a bad thing.
