Olympus 45mm Image Thread

Hi! I just got the Oly 45! The black E-P3 looks SO great with it!

Here I am posting the first shot I took with it.

Wow, great shots guys. I hope when mine arrives next week and I actually take my Panny 20 mm off to stick it on the front of my GF1 that I get pictures like that.

Really shallow DoF!

It was kind of hard to put it on the E-P3. Very very tight fit. I just got a black screen on the first attempt. I put it back and it worked.

I'd love to see what this lens can do in a professional/semi-professional model photo shoot. You guys listening? :smile:

Regards,

Nothing aesthetic or scientific here - just a quick handheld shot. This lens is sharp.

Needs stopping down to at least f2.8, otherwise the DOF is too shallow on a large sensor like :43: :rofl:

This lens rocks. Micro 4/3rds is on a roll!

Here's the lens mounted on my G3:

A couple snaps with the G3, 45 1.8 and my grumpy daughter who wanted to sleep!

Portraits 1 and 2 are fantastic. I'm on pins and needles waiting for mine!

Wow, great first shots everyone! I want one of these badly, but I was trying to be good after spending a lot of money recently on other things... I don't think I can hold out!

The early reviews on this lens was one reason I sold my EP3 and went back to my EP1. I love the EP3 (and will get it used when it's cheaper), but this lens looked stellar!
