It may be getting a bit long in the tooth, but this standard lens is a classic for users of Micro Four Thirds cameras who’d like a sharp prime that puts in a highly respectable all-round performance. Equivalent to 50mm, the build quality is great for a lens so small, with a lovely smooth-to-operate manual focus ring, metal mount and 46mm filter thread at the front. Like all wide-aperture primes, care is required when focusing wide-open. Nail the focus and it’ll return super sharp results in the centre, with the sweet spot of sharpness from edge to edge being located around f/4. It’s a delightful little prime that’ll keep a camera setup super compact.
