Wildlife Lover: M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f2.8 PRO

The dog-obsessed (or cat-obsessed) dad: M.Zuiko Digital ED 40-150mm f4 PRO

In our review we said:

“OM SYSTEM indicates that this lens uses the same fundamental structure as the M.Zuiko 40-150mm f2.8 PRO, with 15 elements in nine groups, a narrower opening and a lighter, more compact design. I found this lens to be very sharp with a good command of tackling aberrations and blemishes.

The Traveller: M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-100mm f4 IS PRO

In our review we said:

“When I tested the M.Zuiko 12-100mm f4 IS PRO, I found it quite easy to use. I never accidentally moved the focus ring on manual focus and I never I’ve never accidentally turned on image stabilization. However, these are things that can happen. But given that I’ve been using this lens for several months, I haven’t found it problematic. Most people will probably use this lens in autofocus mode.And what is really nice is the precision of the focus when you photograph bees on a flower, for example.

The Portraitist: M.Zuiko Digital ED 45mm f1.2 PRO

Olympus 45 1.2

In our review we said:

“Speaking of autofocus, the M.Zuiko 45mm f1.2 PRO is an excellent performer, able to track subjects accurately and get to critical focus quickly. This lens is definitely faster to focus. to the point that most APS-C and Full Frame f1.2 lenses are capable of.It not only has an advantage in size (smaller elements to move) but also in depth of field.

The Candid Photographer: M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f2.8 PRO II

In our preview, we said:

“It’s small but mighty. If you’ve ever been a fan of Dwarfs in Warhammer, Gimli in The Lord of the Rings, or the surprisingly effective Dishwasher Cleaning Tablets, you’ll love it. Small can be awesome for sure.

The Walking One: M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-45mm f4 PRO

In our review we said:

“The colors of this lens are really enhanced by the vivid color mode of the OM-D E-M1 Mark III. I found my favorite to deliver when shooting with natural color mode. But feel free to also use the artistic filters for even better things.

The Passionate Photographer: M.Zuiko Digital ED 8-25mm f4 PRO

In our review we said:

“Of course it’s an F4, but the M.Zuiko 8-25mm f4 PRO has a long minimum focus distance. This makes bokeh possible at 25mm f4 when shooting close up. The backgrounds were nice and soft when getting closer. The bokeh balls were soft and round…”

The various product overview features are done internally. Our philosophy is simple: you wouldn’t get a Wagyu beef steak review from a lifelong vegetarian. And you wouldn’t get photography advice from someone who doesn’t touch the product. We only recommend equipment that we have fully reviewed. If you’re wondering why your favorite product didn’t make the cut, it might be on another list. If we haven’t reviewed it, we won’t recommend it. This method keeps our lists filled with cutting-edge knowledge. Some of our stories include affiliate links. If you purchase something through one of these links, we may earn an affiliate commission.
