The 45mm f1.8 is an affordable fixed focal length prime lens that’s bright enough to excel in low-light interiors, fast enough for pro-quality action shots, and second to none when it comes to creating the lovely defocused background effects you want in your portraits.
Photographers who shoot a lot of portraits and still-lives are always seeking good bokeh.
Pro-Level Quality Photo
You’ve seen a lot of professional-level photos with sharply rendered subjects and artistic defocused backgrounds.
Movie & Still Compatible
One of this lens’s most interesting features is the unique-to-Olympus Movie & Still Compatible mechanism, or MSC. This technology provides amazingly fast – and nearly silent – autofocus operation.
