CSC Lens of the Year

2013 CSC Lens of the Year

Olympus M.Zuiko ED 75mm f/1.8 £729

Olympus and Panasonic users are spoilt for choice with premium optics, but one that stood out for us this year is the M.ZUIKO ED 75mm f/1.8. Getting the highest score for any CSC or DSLR lens we’ve tested over the past 12 months, this lens exudes quality.

Cased in a full-metal body with a finely grooved manual focus ring, the refined styling complements the Olympus OM-D and PEN bodies. On a Micro Four Thirds body, this lens provides a focal length equivalent to 150mm in traditional 35mm film terms, making it the perfect choice for isolated portraits and discreet low-light shooting.

In our technical testing it delivered an outstanding set of MTF curves, while real-world shooting rendered excellent edge-to-edge sharpness and crisp contrast, with few if any signs of chromatic aberration.

If you own a Micro Four Thirds camera, this should be in your kit bag.
