The Olympus 12mm lens is definitely my favorite wide angle for the M43 mount and today the 45mm 1.8 arrived. A great portrait lens, acts like 90mm on full frame, love the size and built. Only thing-I really want it in black (the lens in black after the break).
I was surprised how fast and silent this lens focuses,
it is much harder to achieve fast AF speed on a tele lens, optical elements have to travel further in distance then on a wide angle lens.
Check the very short video to see how fast this lens focuses. A totally unscientific test and your results may vary, but it will give you a pretty good idea this lens is no slouch. A keeper in my bag.
