I love it on my E-PL2!
I think it's strange no-one uses it!
I think the main reason the 85 f1.8 not widely used is the unusual color aberrations. It tends to add add a greenish cast to hair more often than not.
Wow, what a beautiful picture!
Man, you just made my day.
Great image! ...I have the lens and the mount but for some reason I haven't thought to try it on my E-PL2! (I've been using the Nikon 50mm 1.4)
You've inspired me :smile:
Please try it!
It was my favorite lens on the Fujifilm S5. And I still use it more than my 50 1.4 on the olympus.
Are you using it wide open or what aperture?
f2.8 or f4
Would 85mm lens at f2.8 have more shallow DoF than 45mm at f1.8?
No, I think it would be quite the same... But having more distance from the model gives a more flattering look...
85mm at f/2.8 would have far, far shallower DOF than 45mm at f/1.8. Not even close. I know this is an old thread, but I wanted to leave a note for posterity's sake.
I noticed this now. Are you really sure? I don't own a full frame camera to make the comparison, but i was pretty sure a 45mm f1,4 on a m43 would have almost the same framing (except one would be 2:3 and the other 4:3) and dof of a 90 f2,8 on a full frame. Numbers here are not that different (45 1.8 and 85 2.8 ).
For the same subject size you need to double the distance.
85mm f/2.8 at 10ft.: 4.18in.
45mm f/1.8 at 5ft.: 2.34in.
As a rule, DOF is always the same for any FL if you correct for subject size and distance to subject. The 85mm only looks narrower because of the telephoto compression.
You're right. I thought the question meant 85mm f/2.8 on FF vs. 45mm f/1.8 on m4/3.
wich adapter do you use for the Nikon lenses?
A random one got on eBay. At the moment my girlfriend "stole" it and my 50mm 1.8E so I can't check
