  • Olympus 50mm f/2 Zuiko Digital Macro

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    fast lense, very sharp, very good contrast
    slow AF, no focus range limiter

    An excellent lens, not only as Macro, but also very good as moderate tele and as portrait lens.

    Combination with EC-20 works as an excellent 4/100 Telemakro up to 1:1.

    Highly recommended!

  • Olympus 150mm f/2 Zuiko Digital

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Fast lens with F=2, Very good optic quality, Fast AF
    Heavy and expensive but there is due to physical laws

    A very good tele lens, high contrast and very sharp. Can be used with TC-14 and with TC-20 without visible loss in quality, even with maximum aperture! So you can get an very good 2,8/210 and a very good 4/300, too!

  • Olympus 12-60mm f/2.8-4 ED SWD Zuiko Digital

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Wide range 24-120 KB equivalent, good optical quality, Fast AF

    The best lens available if you don't want to change lenses.

    Sharper and with less chromatic aberation than the 11-22!

    Using maximum aperture there is a little vignetting, if you take pictures of the sky, but if you use a RAW-Converter, you can correct this with one mouse click.

    Fast SWD-AF!

  • Olympus 25mm f/2.8 Zuiko Digital

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Very small and lightweight, good peformance
    No distance and depth-of-field scales

    I use this lens mostly on a E-420. The combination is almost anytime with me, when I leave the house.

    Optical quality is fine, aperture of 2.8 is enough in almost all cases. I even use the lens for AL-picture in Jazz clubs (with the E-3)!

    The screw-in lens-hood, made of aluminum is ideal for using the camera without any bag. You cannot lose it and it protects the glas very well.

  • Olympus 14-35mm f/2 ED SWD Zuiko Digital

    10 out of 10 points and recommended
    Has the quality of excellent primes
    Price (but cheaper than 3 primes with 14 mm, 25mm and 35 mm)

    An outstanding lens with fast AF. I use it almost solely in concerts, where I need the open aperture. Combined with the E-3 (with its IF) it is as good as a Nikon D3 (my personal opinion of course).

    The lens is very sharp, even in the corners of the picture. No vignetting, no blur. No problems with against the light shots (but use the sun blade)

    For me it is not too heavy or too large. Of course on a E-420 it looks a little bit funny. And of course it is not a lens for hiking (Therefore you should use the 12-60).

    Highly recommended!
