Digital photography demands more than the traditional optical designs of film lenses. Photographers want to be able to shoot not only stopped down but with the aperture wide open and know they will get sharp, detailed edge-to-edge sharpness. The Olympus E-System and Zuiko Digital LensesTM are designed to meet the everyday needs of professional photographers.
With digital specific lens designs and unrivaled optical elements, unsurpassed image quality is achievable in an interchangeable lens SLR system, no matter what aperture you choose. And an incredibly compact, lightweight design - based on the innovative Four Thirds System - provides you with the most versatile, high-performance interchangeable lens system you've ever experienced.
This compact and affordable medium telephoto Zuiko Digital Lens is ideal for not only macro photography but also as a portrait lens. The high performance digital specific design includes an ED glass element for impressive color accuracy and offers a magnification of 1:2 (half life size), which has an image magnification size equivalent to life size (1:1) in a 35mm film photo. A large 2.0 maximum aperture makes it excellent for lower-light photography as well.
The 50mm 2.0 Macro Zuiko Digital Lens features 11 elements in 10 groups, including an Extraordinary Dispersion glass element to minimize aberration and ensure sharp and accurate edge-to-edge detail.
Very sharp lens as nearly everyone reports. Coupling with EX-25 extension tube increases versatility. Excellent addition to my 4/3 lens collection.
I bought this as a way to try out a new prime lens, buying it used. The lens arrived quickly after ordering it. (Adorama is one of the best online dealers I've dealt with). The lens itself is in mint condition, works like it is brand new.
I just got this lens. Work well very clear pictures. I had read that it searches when focusing. Makes- Agrinding noise. It did that for me. This seemed to occur when the object is dark or with no clearly define edges. I always have used single point focusing. I tried multipoint focusing . The focusing was then extremely fast and appears to be accurate. And with out searching. I hope this holds up. Also tried five point pattern. Again, focusing was very fast and appears accurate and there was no searching. If the pics turn out well, and multipoint or 5point focusing give clear pics, ths lens will be one of the best if not the best that I own.
Wonderful lens, stunning sharpness and microcontrast, gorgeous bokeh. Every manufacturer has their superstar lenses that have that little bit of magic in them. This lens has that magic. Works great on my E-M1 as a portrait lens too.
I normally only get remained or new but to save almost $300 Adorama has get prices and the rating system for used equipment are spot on Great working produce and no abnormal problems So if you have a chance to get used Do It
I've ordered the Olympus 50 f/2.0 macro lens & the focusing ring didn't work. Sent it back for a new one & the focusing ring didn't work on it either. Sent it back still waiting on another one. Adorama has been very good at replacing this lens. I even called Olympus and explained the problem to them, they were no help at all they need to tighten up on quality control.
Non-zoom lens equivalent to 100mm focal length on a 35mm film camera. Since I already nave the great Zuiko 12-60 mm (= 24 to 120 mm) f2.8-4.0 lens, which has pretty good close focusing capability at the tele end, this lens does not add much new macro capability. But it's 2 stops faster, and only weighs half as much. This lens has great bokeh. I use it as a portrait and general walking-around lens. Since I shot 35mm film cameras for years with 90mm and 135mm lenses, I'm very comfortable with this one. The extra speed helps in low light or when shooting hand held with a polarizer or other filter that cuts down the light.
This is a wonderfully sharp lens with great bokeh. The shallow dof requies a bit of care with focussing, but gives great creative possibilities. A must have, especially at the price.
This product was on my "wish list" for better than two years as I wanted to get back into Macro Photography. Now that I have it, I wonder why I waited. My results have been spectacular. I couldn't be more pleased. Also, this was my first purchase from Adorama. I was impressed with both their telephone customer service representative who answered all my questions and the On-line order process where I ultimately placed the order. I will certainly order from Adorama again.
Excellent lens and already have used it multiple times to produce excellent images. Added to that Adorama's shipping and customer service and I am one very happy customer.
