About this deal

There is no perfect camera for every situation and while the classic dslrs are “at the moment” still superior in sports photography the OM-D makes them look like dinosaurs in some other situations. Advantage of using a long lens, you can shoot a subject from far away, yet having the subject reasonably close in your frame.

High-Grade Portrait Lens Enhances the Power, Performance and Versatility of Olympus OM-D and PEN Compact System Cameras. The 75mm by all accounts is an exceptional lens, and would have a bit more reach, but I’m really in the market for a telephoto zoom lens for the OMD5. NOTE: If you really, really wanted to do close-ups with this lens, you could use the Raynox DCR-250 Super Macro Snap-on lens, which brings the MFD to 60cm. I am glad so many really good cameras are coming onto the market and it sounds like the OM-D is near the top of the list.It’s great for portraits of grizzled, weather-beaten fishermen, but it’s too sharp for flattering pictures of women . That’s what makes me so curious as to how Olympus improved the state-of-the-art with the EM-5 sensor (coupled with the reportedly awesome Olympus Primes like the 12, 48, and 75)!

I expected the 40mm full-frame equivalent lens to be my go-to choice for the more artistic kind of photos my sister was looking for.

Give this to anyone who doesn’t know anything about photo gear and they’ll tell you it feels special. Without a doubt, this 75mm lens and its fast autofocus system saved my sister’s engagement photos that day. I love this lens and its wonderful rendering of colours and clearness of details, which make fotos nearly 3-dimensional. Overall, despite this being one of the older m43 lenses, I have no complaints with AF speed and accuracy. After reading what you’ve said about the Sony so far, feels like we’re at a point in time where IQ at relatively low/normal ISO levels (say to 6400……………6400!

The focus ring, although decently sized, feels like a poorer quality material than the rest of the lens. They started with the super fun PEN EP-1, then EP-2, then E-P3 and when they released the OM-D E-M5 they changed the M4/3 game more than Panasonic has ever done. While the front element may look disproportionately huge, the lens actually takes standard 58mm filters. The prints are sharp, and detailed (eith proper technique, tripod use, good lighting, low ISO, optimum aperture, etc.I think you’re saying that the slowest handheld shutter speed you’d usually use with any lens is the ‘reciprocal’ of the lens’ focal length . This focal length is often left for portrait photography, as it gives the shooter a chance to stand a ways back and let a scene develop naturally. I was using F8 for this shot and still did not get enough depth of field to see the whole fruit in focus. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The focus ring feels plasticky when compared to the remaining lens materials and it gives the impression of being poorly made.
