Olympus Zuiko 45mm f/1.8 Lens Nature Photography Samples & Review

About three months ago I bought the Olympus Zuiko 45mm f/1.8 lens for Micro Four Third Cameras. Which equates to 90mm full frame.

The Lens is small and compact

The 45mm is a prime lens that comes with a max f stop of f/1.8 which makes it great for low light conditions. Additionally the lens is also excellent for portrait photography, landscape photography. It is a versatile lens and I tested it on a sunny Friday afternoon during this autumn and on a dire Sunday morning in one of the local forests.

I used the Lumix G7 with 45mm and here are the results

I loved how the camera performed one you focused on a subject as below

ISO200, 1/200, f/1.8
ISO200, 1/200, f/2.0

I loved the bokeh whilst keeping the centre in focus

Autumn Bed: f/3.5, ISO200, 1/200

The lens is versatile and fast, as I was shooting in Manual some of these pictures are not perfect, but all of them are in focus and sharp

Great detail and focus! f/14, 1/160 & ISO 2000
f/3.5, 1/320s, ISO 200, Stops: +0.3

To conclude: This lens has quickly become one of my favo prime lenses for photography and filming, this lens is a great addition to your kit if you like nature, portrait, street photography.
