Shooters committed to the Four Thirds System, take note. Here is Serious Glass. This pro-caliber 70-200mm equivalent zoom ($2,200, street) -- the world's fastest in its focal-length range -- packs four elements of ED glass, one element of Super ED glass, and all-metal construction with rubber seals...

Let’s start with the disadvantages. A weak work against bright light was quite unexpected. We don’t deal here with wide angles of view, the optics is of the highest quality and the small 4/3 sensor was supposed to help in damping down unwanted flares.

    high build quality and solid casing,, excellent image quality in the frame centre at all focal lengths and apertures, very good image quality at the frame edge,, well-corrected chromatic aberration,, low distortion,, well-corrected coma,, low vignetting,, effective autofocus.

    weak performance against bright light,, lack of SWD motor.

I don't (yet) own an Olympus E-M1, but the manufacturer was evidently hoping to keep its faithful old Four Thirds customers happy with a camera that finally enabled some absolutely fantastic lenses to perform almost as well as they did on the platform they were originally built for.

  • +

    Very sharp at all apertures and focal lengths; attractive colour rendition; accurate focus of still subjects

  • -

    Heavy and expensive; focus struggles somewhat with erratic moving subjects

Outstanding corner to corner sharpness by /2.8, consistent with the other SHG lenses. Lovely bokehThe Olympus SHG 35-100mm f/2 ED easily outperforms the 45mm f/1.8 and 75mm f/1.8 ED prime lenses at the cost of needing the MMF-3 adapter and being huge and heavy by comparison.

I have owned a copy of this lens for a couple years now. I am astounded by its sharpness. It is fast and bright. It is a bit heavy and the hood is quite large. Nevertheless, it is a pleasure to use indoors and out. This lens lifts your game a couple of notches.

My second favorite lens, its simply awesome!! I have been using it for shooting weddings for over 1 year and I cant say anough about it.

I was using this lens on an Olympus e5 DSLR and again when I moved to the Olympus OMD-EM1. The optics are incredible and the constant F2 really makes a difference in low light. I have subsequently purchased the newer 40-150 F2.8 for m43 and it is an excellent lens.

It has bright aperture, so I can take very clear photos in the darkness without flash lights.

The extra stop over the u4/3 lenses is critical for me when shooting indoor sports. Adapted to the E-M1, it focuses quickly, even for indoor sports. It's also great for portraits and landscapes, details are sharp from corner to corner.

The new MFT lenses are really sweet. But this FT classic is still fast, bright, and sharp once adapted to the E-M1. With an extra stop of wiggle room over its younger siblings, it's worth consideration and the investment.
