The Olympus M.Zuiko 45 mm f/1.2 PRO Lens has been specifically designed for portraits and other style of photography that can take advantage of the exaggerated shallow depth of field. It’s bright f/1.2 aperture make it ideal for low-light shooting and allows the use of ultra-fast shutter speeds during the day to freeze extremely fast motion.

90mm Equivalent Focal Length

Making the most of the Micro Four Third crop factor, the 45mm lens effectively delivers a prime focal length of 90mm (35mm equivalent) that is incredibly flattering for portraits. The near-telephoto look of the lens compresses the background and combined with the wide aperture can create a super-shallow depth of field that makes your subject stand out from their environment.

Ultra-Shallow Aperture with Feathered Bokeh

With an incredibly fast f/1.2 aperture the lens captures stunning background blur that makes the focused areas of your shot look razor sharp. The optical construction and aperture blade produce a beautiful and unique feathered bokeh that creates a gentle transition between the in-focus and out-of-focus areas, to ensure your subject is undeniably the focal point of your composition.

Lightning-Fast and Precise Autofocus

The lens can capture images with an extremely shallow depth-of-field without any compromise on autofocus performance, unlike DSLR lenses. When matched with the high-end Olympus cameras like the OMD EM-1 Mark II the lens can make the most of Face and Eye Priority Autofocus modes to keep your subject sharp and in-focus even in demanding shooting conditions.

Superior PRO Imaging Performance

The 45mm f/1.2 makes use of 3 carefully arranged lens elements, one of which is a ED element to correct out-of-focus and peripheral colour bleeding producing excellent image results. The use of special lenses in the sophisticated 14 elements, 10 group optical construction allows the lens to resolve a high level of detail. These factors combined with the prime lens design ensures that the shots you capture are pin sharp.
