    Panasonic HES045 - 45 mm - f/2.8 - Macro Lens for Micro Four Thirds


    Designed and manufactured to meet Leica's stringent performance standards, this high-quality macro lens minimizes distortion, ghosts, flaring and decreased peripheral resolution. With 14 elements in 10 groups, including one aspherical lens and one ED lens, it provides stable contrast and high resolution all the way from 1:1 macro (35mm camera equivalent: 2x) to infnity. By using a foating Inner Focus system that shifts three groups of lenses, the elaborate focusing that's so essential to a macro lens has become both faster and quieter. Also featured is MEGA O.I.S., which fights blurring from hand-shake to help you capture clear, sharp images with everything from macro and medium-telephoto portraits to wide landscapes and long telephoto shots.

      I bought this because I'd already started taking pictures of every flower I came across, so the leap to full 1:1 macro seemed natural. Since then, it's spent entire days fixed on my camera. I love it. It's relatively heavy for a Micro 4/3 lens, but that's because of all the good glass in there. The pictures are sharp, I've never noticed any CA, and it definitely lets me get close. It also doubles as a convenient 90mm-equivalent length portrait lens - great for pics of friends or candid street shots.

      Lightweight, well-balanced, sharp, great for portraits and macro ie flowers, etc. I love single focal length lenses. While I have the kit zoom lens. My favorite lenses are the 20mm and the reviewed 45mm.
