Five Fantastic Micro Four Thirds Lenses

One of the best parts about the Micro Four Thirds system is the availability of a lot of small lenses that pack a lot of image quality into those tiny footprints. If you are looking to expand your lens arsenal, check out this fantastic video that features a seasoned Micro Four Thirds user sharing five of his favorite lenses for the system.

Coming to you from Robin Wong, this great video details five of his favorite lenses for the Micro Four Thirds system, including:

Though all of these lenses offer great performance and image quality, the 12-40mm f/2.8 is especially highly respected, particularly since it offers a 24-80mm equivalent focal length range in tandem with a wide maximum aperture, all at a price less than half that of most full frame 24-70mm f/2.8 options, making it a desirable option for a wide range of users. Check out the video above for Wong's full thoughts on all five lenses.

Not sure the Oly 45/1.8 belongs on the "best" list. I own one, and it's pretty good. It's also tiny and affordable, which earns it some brownie points. But, it is known to have a fair bit of field curvature. Which is fine for portraits, but not great for landscapes or other images requiring optimal edge sharpness. Panasonic's 42.5/1.7 seems a stronger contender in this regard.

OTOH, the Oly 75/1.8 is truly a standout lens.

He clearly states it is a list of his personal subjective favourites, not a list of objective "best" lenses, and he also states that he is a portrait, wedding, and event photographer.
