    A remarkable optic but crap build quality

    Hahah Hi Alan
    I agree but Leica will charge u USD 9999 and CZ around USD 6000, Canon may charge USD1999 and Nikon 1899 and still give a crap optic with Brilliant built quality and I wont buy it . I am happy for a 300 dollar lens to perform at par with the best ones .

    Great story that I can relate to having just let my D700 kit go and replaced with the OMD - best deal I have done and my back really appreciates it.

    Ok, the 45 is not made of metal but I would not classify the build as crap and it is a great value lens for the price, in metal it would be in the same price range as the 12mm so I can live with the build as I treat it with love and it repays me with quality images.....Simple!

    Thanks Ian ..
    I agree , Its the optical performance which is more important and built is fine .

    I have no prob with the optical performance, but you have to take the front part, off the lens to fit a £30 lenshood that cost penny's to make, which doesn't fit square and when fitted, wobbles about, It is just silver painted plastic that easily scatched and scuffed ...oh, were did I put that front bit of lens? maybe they could learn from Sigma on how to build a good lenshood that they include in a $99 lens

    Now now, Bhupinder, Zeiss camera lenses aren't that expensive - the 85/1.4 is only about 1000, and the 50/1.4 Planar 600 new (Canon or Nikon mount), and can be had for less in Contax mount ;)

    I like but don't love the 45 - the build quality is fine because of the price, the sharpness is excellent, I just still don't quite gel with the focal length...

    Try the LIM's SAH-SE37S1. - about the same price as the Olympus hood, excellent build quality from aluminium, you can reverse it for storage and it stops the trim ring falling off. Yes you need to fit a filter to use it but you can take the filter out and just use the threaded ring.

    Thanks you so much for letting me know. I know , this FL is not fav with everyone but some how I like it . When shooting pics like in this thread , this FL comes handy actually . I am much more pleased with what this lens churns out at USD 299-350 :2thumbs:

    nice pics! I love the 45, it's design philosophy is the same as the 40-150, focus on the best part, the optic quality. I actually like the plastic build, makes it weigh almost nothing.

    Thanks Margaret :smile:
    Simple plain pics are boring . I was on a small cruise and OMD with Oly 45 mm did attract this couple and he did ask me about this camera and lens . Its really amazing this small combo can deliver such beautiful images .
