Lens review

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 45 mm f/1.8

7 September 2011

11. Summary

Pros:
  • small, very handy housing,
  • sensational image quality in the frame centre,
  • excellent image quality on the edge of the frame, including the maximum relative aperture,
  • very low chromatic aberration,
  • low distortion,
  • slight astigmatism,
  • well-corrected vignetting,
  • efficient and accurate autofocus.

Cons:

  • pity the lens is not made entirely of metal.

The summary of our tests rarely can be so unambiguous. I really can’t imagine a situation when a Micro 4/3 body owner doesn’t have this lens as well. If you haven’t bought it yet, do make up for this complete mistake as soon as possible.
