Olympus M. Zuiko 45mm f/1.8 Review

Matthew Duclos of Duclos Lenses has posted a review of the Olympus M. Zuiko 45mm F1.8 lens. Check it out here.

Chromatic aberrations are present but well controlled. You can see some obvious purple fringing in some of the samples where I intentionally over-exposed the background on a dimmer foreground object. The fringing is a bit more controlled at mid-range apertures but increase a bit more at the smallest apertures. Sharpness is very good in the center with almost no falloff out to the edges. Same goes for light falloff and distortion, all well controlled. There is a minor flare when shooting wide open at f/1.8.
