    LensTip review of Olympus 45mm f/1.8

    While I was unimpressed handling the 45mm f/1.8 after the 12mm f/2, the performance it right up there and for the suggested selling price this lens is going to deliver a massive bang for buck.

    Although this site sometimes has some very quaint translation to English you get a good idea from the conclusion...

    On my shopping list.

    Yes, on my shopping list as well.

    Is it just me, or was that a decent amount of vignetting though? They don't mention that its bad, but visually, it looks bothersome. Maybe everyday shots it won't show up. The center resolution looks really good though.

    It looks like this lens vignettes less than the Panasonic 20mm. I'm not bothered by this amount of vignetting in the slightest.
