Olympus 45mm F/1.8 review.   

The very tiny Olympus 45mm F/1.8 turned in a stellar performance.  Both landscapers and night stalkers (low-light hand-held shooters) will love this lens, it works great wide open in low light, and is critically sharp at F/4 over most of the image.  The lens is so small and light it’s almost like a toy, but that makes it even more desirable in my opinion, especially if you’re carrying it in a waist pack.

Believe it or not; this lens is very similar in optical performance to the extraordinary Sony CZ 24/1.8 for NEX.  Of course the focal lengths are far different, but the Olympus 45/1.8 represents a great value at $399
