Re: 45mm f1.8 115

That's a bargain and if I did not already have one I'd be snapping it up, I had my 17mm f1.8 of them for 199, they seem to sell there secondhand mft stock rather cheaply, not that I'm complaining.

Re: 45mm f1.8 115

The second hand 45mm f1.8 lens arrived today in excellent condition, and to my surprise it came complete with an olympus LH-40B lens hood.
The icing on the cake: I chose 4 day delivery at nil cost, ordered last Sunday (thanks to the heads-up from Beagletorque ) and as said earlier it arrived today.
Well done WEX!

Re: 45mm f1.8 115

The question is, does it live up to (our) expectations?

If it's like my example it's a cracking lens.

It's an interesting design, for sure, tapering from a wide diameter at the mount to something somewhat less at the front.
There's no disguising its a plastic bodied lens, but interestingly it has a band of metal just in front of the pseudo manual focus ring - possibly to give a better feel factor, literally given metal is cold.
For a 45mm f1.8 optic the front element is quite small, certainly comparing it to the 75mm f1.8 which has an acreage of glass!
After a quick inspection for condition (WEX described it as having slight internal dust, but I can't detect any at all) all I could do was try it out indoors, in artificial light, and it snaps to focus in a fraction of a second, so on that basis alone gets very good marks.
I'm sure it will find application before too long.

It is one of the 'must have' m43rds lenses. It has been described as one of the sharpest lenses of any make, period.

On that basis I can't complain - 115 was a snip.
My appetite is duly wetted!
