Best lenses for the Olympus OM-D E-M1: Short telephoto and standard focal lengthsBy Kevin Carter - Friday November 29 2013 Lens Recommendations
With a convincing lead of three points over the next best lens in our database of MFT primes, the top-performing model is the M.Zuiko Digital 75mm f1.8 with a DxOMark lens score of 27 points and a 12-P-Mpix sharpness score. With the 2x crop factor of MFT sensors this unmatched model is the equivalent to a 150mm – considered slightly too long for indoor portraits but there should be no concerns outdoors or when used for indoor sports.
In third place is the modestly priced M.Zuiko 45mm f1.8. This tiny little model is highly regarded as a portrait lens and is quite sharp when stopped down to f2.8.
