Olympus 45mm F/1.8 – The pocket portrait gem

The Olympus 45mm F/1.8 prime lens is currently Olympus’ only fast short telephoto lens. Yes the 60 macro is perfect portrait length… but it is F/2.8. The 75mm F/1.8 lens is also amazing… but it is a bit long for working in close distances. Luckily the 45mm is a stellar offering.   As usual I […]
