Brian was lucky to be able to sample the new Olympus E-620 during a Focus on Imaging session, but he did include a few portrait samples taken with the 50/2 mounted on an Olympus E-30.

Most of the images were shot with the lens wide-open at f/2 and the E30 at ISO400, and Brian said:

wow! this lens is unbelievably sharp wide open, and at f2 ISO 400 I could keep the shutter speeds high for great results.

Random images from user galleries on PBase.com
The Olympus 50mm f/2.0 photo gallery on Pbase serves up a random set of pictures, so you’ll need to hit the refresh button on your browser to serve up another set.

For instance, I like this excellent child portrait (shot with an Olympus E-330) was taken with the lens wide-open at f/2.

Accessories and add-ons

The filter thread size on the 50mm F2 macro is 52mm, which means you’ll want to be looking at purchasing 52mm filters.
