50mm focal length indeed works as a short telephoto on a µ4/3 body, indeed ideally suited for e.g. portraits. Nitpicking, a 50mm lens remains a 50mm lens, irrespective of the camera it's mounted on. The angle-of-view of a 50mm on a µ4/3 camera is equivalent to that of a 100mm lens on a 35mm film camera.I'm assuming that, with the 50mm prime and the 2x crop factor, that this works out to be a 100mm prime on the m4/3rds bodies. Is that correct?
If so, a 100mm 1:1.4 prime might just be one of the coolest portrait lenses ever!
Closest focussing distance is 0.45m.Also, how close will this lens focus?
