Lens Reviews / Olympus Lenses i Lab tested

The angle of vision within which the human eye discerns colors and shapes is about 45 degrees and a standard lens is, in general, designed to have that angle. This F1.8 standard lens with 47 degree picture angle depicts natural perspective. Based upon the most modern computerized lens designing, the lens demonstrates superb optical characteristics, correcting chromatic aberrations and minimizing lens quality degradation in the back-light situation, to reproduce edge-to-edge sharp images. The lens is multi-coated to minimize flare and ghosts. In color photography also the lens demonstrates superb quality because much attention was paid to color balance. These features make this a versatile lens ideal for general photography and snapshots.
