Olympus 45mm f1.8 sample photos
Just a quick post to show what the Olympus 45mm f/1.8 lens can do. First off, a portrait photo, as this lens is supposed to be a portrait lens. It's razor sharp wide open at f/1.8. Impressive. More photos after the jump.
BOKEH! Oh yeh. No shortage of bokeh (background blur) with this lens given it's somewhat long and the aperture is nice and big. The bokeh is really quite something, smooth and pleasing.
Loving that shallow depth of field. I know, I know. Missed the focus, but I don't care. It's a nice photo.
A golf ball in the driving range. Lots of detail here. This 45mm is not a macro lens, unlike the Olympus 50mm for Four Thirds.
More bokeh superpowers.
Most of these were shot at ISO 200 wide open at f/1.8. Minor adjustments in Aperture for a couple of them, I think, but mostly I didn't touch the shots or haven't gotten around to that yet. Shot in RAW, in case you're wondering.
