You want light gathering power? You've got it, with an f1.2 aperture that gathers twice as much light as an f1.8 lens, letting you shoot in dimmer conditions without slowing the shutter or bumping-up the IS. You want creamy bokeh?

  • +

    Superb quality. Sharp right into the corners at f1.2. Best yet for M4/3., f1.2 focal ratio delivers very shallow depth of field with nice bokeh., f1.2 focal ratio great in low light: gathers twice as much light as f1.8 lens., Very well-corrected optics with minimal vignetting, coma or CA.

  • -

    Most expensive M4/3 prime yet, roughly double the 75mm f1.8., Modest closest focusing distance of 0.5m means it's no macro lens., Cats-eye bokeh for specular highlights at f1.2 and f1.4., Stabilisation only effective for one or two stops in my tests.

This new prime lens for Micro Four Thirds system cameras sports a fast f/1.2 maximum aperture, Power Optical Image Stabilisation, Nano Surface anti-reflective coatings and a manual aperture ring.

I had many cameras Canons, Nikons with all the pro lenses within the past 40 years, but I have not seen anything so perfect and razor sharp with incredible details, from the very edge to edge and corner to corner.

    Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Very fast autofocus, brilliant image quality, and the stabilization is great too. My one gripe about this lens (and a reason I may sell it in the future) is that it's just really heavy!
