Description

The Olympus Zuiko 50mm f/1.8 is a manual focus normal lens for the world famous Olympus OM system.  It's useable on OM-Mount 35mm film SLR (Single Lens Reflex) cameras and accessories like OM-Mount lens adapters or extension tubes.  Olympus' Zuiko lenses are revered for being superb optics executed with high quality glass and coatings.

The lens produces a 47° (diagonal) angle of view; it's is often referred to as a 'normal' lens because the field of view roughly matches a human eye and is not considered wide angle or telephoto but rather in-between.

A 50mm f/1.8 is an especially good choice for anyone learning photography.  The f/1.8 aperture allows experimentation with shallower depth of field and shooting in lower lighting.  The fixed focal length forces a photographer to think more concretely about the compositional and perspective effects of physically moving the camera rather than complacently relying on a zoom mechanism to change framing.  It's also an especially affordable way for a photographer to experience the level of sharpness and contrast possible from higher end lenses.

Photographers or collectors seeking a slightly brighter and more premium optic may also want to consider the Olympus Zuiko 50mm f/1.4.
