Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 45mm f/1.2 PRO

Overview of Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 45mm f/1.2 PRO

The about $1199 Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 45mm f/1.2 PRO is a moderate telephoto lens ideal for portraiture and similar. On the Olympus E-M1 Mark II (as I tested it), it balances well but is a bit on the heavy side.

As compared to 35mm full frame, its field of view is equivalent to a 90mm lens and f/2.4 in terms of its depth of field. That is, it’s like shooting a 90mm f/2.4 on 35mm full frame in terms of field of view and depth of field, but with lens speed (f-stop) of f/1.2.
