The Olympus M.Zuiko PRO 45mm f/1.2 Lens is ideal for portraiture, with a highly-desirable 90mm-equivalent focal length and a bright maximum f/1.2 aperture that offers great creative control. This combination enables you to create a distinct shallow depth of field for razor-sharp subjects in contrast to a smooth, feathered bokeh. It also enables superb handling in difficult lighting conditions. Whether it’s an indoor portrait in ambient light or you’re outside in full sun with a colourful background, you’ll be wowed by the results you can achieve.
Thanks to the high-quality construction of this prime 45mm lens, outstanding results are guaranteed: crisp edge-to-edge sharpness, true colour reproduction and reduced aberrations. This is thanks to the incorporation of low dispersion, aspherical and high refractive index glass elements as part of the lens build, which has a total of 14 elements in 10 groups. It also features a rounded nine-blade diaphgram which contributes to the smooth bokeh effects that can be created with this lens.
Whether you’re photographing a child who can’t sit still for long period of time or an adult in an atmospheric, indoor setting with low light, the Olympus M.Zuiko PRO 45mm f/1.2 Lens features an MSC High-Speed Imager AF System that won’t let you down. Along with an internal focusing design, it is capable of delivering fast and silent focusing that is highly precise – ideal for both stills and video. The lens also features an MF clutch so you can quickly change to manual focus when greater control is required. The result: crystal-clear images that you’ll love.
The Olympus M.Zuiko PRO 45mm f/1.2 Lens features the signature Olympus ZERO (Zuiko extra-low reflection optical) coating on each of the individual lens elements. This works to limit flare and ghosting to deliver top-notch images that show incredible clarity and colour, free unwanted distortion.
Enjoy the peace of mind that comes with shooting with equipment that is weather-sealed. This Olympus prime lens is splash-, dust- and freeze-proof, so you can take it just about anywhere. From the snowy peaks of Japan to the dusty wide open plains of Africa, this durable lens will prove a durable piece of equipment that is also reliably high-performing, making it a must-have in your kit.

Yes. This lens features a programmable L-Fn (lens function) button so you can easily access settings adjustments. It also has a Manual Focus Clutch mechanism which makes it easy to instantly switch to manual focus by simply pulling the focusing ring towards you.
The Olympus M.Zuiko PRO 17mm f/1.2 Lens has a superior optical construction, including 6 ED lens elements – the most of any M.Zuiko lens. These elements help the lens to compensate for chromatic aberrations, which can be a common problem on large-diameter lenses.
We always recommend keeping either a clear protective filter or a UV filter on your lens at all times, simply for an extra layer protection. This will help you to keep your front lens element free from scratches and fingerprints, and help protect it from any bumps and knocks. We also suggest you store your lens with the filter still attached, packed away in a lens bag or dedicated camera bag for padded protection.
