  1. Olympus 75mm f/1.8 lens review

    Hands on: Olympus 75mm f/1.8 lens review

     

    The new fast optic from Olympus features an all-metal design and an equivalent focal length of 150mm - but how does it perform?

    Olympus ED 50mm f/2.0 Macro review

    This Four Thirds lens has 'macro' on the side but only a 1:2 magnification ratio. It relies on the 2x crop factor to bring objects up to size. Despite this, the 50mm lens feels more like a 100mm on Olympus bodies

    Despite being mainly a kit lens, the Olympus 14-45mm has a lot going for it. A new multi-coating helps keep ghosting and flare to a minimum, while an aspherical element adds to the quality

    Olympus Zuiko 40-150mm f3.5-4.5 review

    The Zuiko 40-150mm lens is designed for the Olympus E-series cameras, notably the brand new E-500 (reviewed on p34). The Four Thirds sensor in the E-series gives a 2x focal factor, so this lens is an 80-300mmzoom in 35mm speak

    Olympus 11-22mm f/2.8-3.5 review

    With its zoom range of 11-22mm, this lens sounds wide until you put it on an Olympus body, where the 2x crop factor turns it into a 22-44mm lens. This means the angle of view is less than with any other lens in its class
