Overview

M.Zuiko ED 45mm f1.2 PRO at a Glance

We’ve designed the M.Zuiko 45mm F1.2 PRO (90mm 35mm equivalent) with one goal in mind: to make your sharpest, most beautiful portraits effortless. You’ll shoot wide open at f1.2 and capture tack sharp subjects and smooth feathered bokeh with a depictive three dimensional result. We’ve included autofocus that’s fast and accurate, even at f1.2. Our most advanced lens coating virtually eliminates flares. And with splashproof and dustproof metal construction, a compact lightweight design, and our brightest aperture for superior low-light performance, this ultimate portrait prime will be one of your go-to lenses in every shooting environment.

    At Olympus, we bring the very best optics to life. Tools designed to work better so your photography is better. This advanced F1.2 PRO lens combines ultra shallow depth of field and ultra high resolution at the maximum f1.2 aperture setting. Unlike other fast prime lenses, we’ve removed the need to stop down for improved performance, so you capture more beautiful photographs. 14 lens elements in 10 groups eliminate spherical and chromatic aberrations and suppress color fringing, and our very best Z Coating Nano suppresses flares from in-frame light sources. All to ensure that every portrait is sharp, clear, and exactly as you envisioned.

  • FEATHERED BOKEH

    Beautiful background bokeh is a must for perfect portraits. To give you complete creative control, the 45mm F1.2 PRO provides two types of bokeh effects. Shoot wide open at f1.2 to produce feathered bokeh that transitions smoothly from sharp to defocused areas. The softer background appearance enhances your subject. Or, produce traditional solid bokeh by stopping down the aperture, enhancing shapes in the background. Combined with the razor sharp subject, you’ll create a natural three dimensional effect. And because the 45mm F1.2 PRO doesn’t use filters in its optics, light transmission is maximized for sharp details and stunning bokeh effects in both bright and low light.

    More
  • FAST & ACCURATE AF

    One of the keys to beautiful sharp portraits is focus. Some fast prime lenses compromise AF speed by using a large focusing mechanism with multiple elements. Fortunately, the 45mm F1.2 PRO is specially designed to be compromise-free. It uses a lightweight inner focusing mechanism with a single lens element to provide fast and sharp AF performance, even at the lens’ widest f1.2 aperture. Excellent close-up shooting capabilities help you to capture larger, more dramatic bokeh areas. And the Movie and Still Compatible mechanism provides quiet, smooth focusing – ideal for shooting video.

  • LEAVE THE RAIN GEAR BEHIND

    Easily capture shots in challenging conditions without worrying about your gear. The 45mm F1.2 PRO’s premium metal construction is hermetically sealed to be splashproof, dustproof, and freezeproof (all the way down to 14°F / -10°C). Its optics are efficiently designed so that overall size and weight are significantly less than what you’ll find with other fast prime lenses. It’s the perfect complement to a compact weatherproof OM-D camera, a combination that’s ideal for all day handheld shooting in any environment.

    More
  • PRO CONVENIENCE
    & CONTROL

    We’ve designed the 45mm F1.2 PRO to give you efficient and convenient control of your gear. The customizable Lens Function Button (L-Fn) lets you control your choice of camera functions right from the lens barrel. Programmable functions include Focus Peaking, AF Stop, and Magnify. The Manual Focus Clutch on the lens’ focus ring lets you instantly shift between auto and manual focus. You can preset a focus position using the easy-to-read distance meter, and by pulling the ring toward you, instantly return to that position from AF mode.

  • F1.2 PRO SERIES

    We’ve designed the F1.2 PRO series with you in mind. No matter which focal length you choose – the 17mm for landscape and street photography, the normal 25mm, or the 45mm for portraiture – you’ll find a compact weathersealed design engineered to exacting standards. Each lens produces sharp resolution and smooth feathered bokeh at the maximum f1.2 aperture setting. And with the highest AF speed and accuracy, you’ll enjoy consistent beautiful results over and over again.

Just. Wow.
This is my first professional level prime lens, and wow. This is an excellent piece of glass. As far as I can tell, it’s sharp through and through. The f1.2 helps a lot with low light photos, and not to forget the “to-die-for” bokeh this brings. I’ve always thought bokeh was just the out of focus background, but I was taught something else with this lens, it’s the quality of the out of focus areas. It is just so creamy and high quality for bokeh that I had to just settle for the bokeh of other lenses (looking at you 25mm 1.7 from another mother). I guess the only downside as reviewers have mentioned are price, size, and weight. You will easily forget about those issues as soon as you put this piece of glass on your camera. I currently use it with my em5ii. The image quality and look you get form this is instantly paid off the moment you start using it, the weight is almost negligible the moment you lift it because it just feels balanced even on a body like this (even on my em10 it feels balanced), and the size feels just right to handle. So I definitely thing if you’re looking for a lens that excels at portraiture, I think this is one of the lenses you have to have.

This is the lens you fall in love with ....
I just got this lens at the local photo show. It was hard to decide between 75/1.8 and 45/1.2 lens. But on the end the macro capability was a bit better with this one. The focus is "INSTANT" I mean is just there !!! , with E-M1mII. Last week I took a lot of pictures at the convention center with low light situation and all come very nice. Over the weekend I did several roses at 1.2 and what a soft background I got, I am very impressed. Now I can't wait to do some panorama images and more flowers .... I switched last year from 5Dm4 to E-M1mII and it has been great experience from 20 Lb I am down to 10 Lb with more gear in my backpack.

My GO-TO Portrait Lens
I am primarily a people photographer and portraits & fashion portraits are my specialty. I switched to Olympus late last year with the OM-D E-M1 Mark II and this 45mm f/1.2 PRO lens is probably the sharpest lens I have ever worked with. Solid construction with the bonus of using the same filter size as the 25mm f/1.2 which I also purchased and the 17mm f/1.2 which is on my list. Combined with my Mark II, the auto focus on this lens is wicked fast and accurate even in low light scenarios. I own the 75mm f/1.8 which is legendary in the M.Zuiko lineup but for my money the 45mm is the PERFECT portrait length lens.
