Overwhelming glass. Wide open looks sharper than anything else in 70-75mm range. You know what I meen.

Am I the only one who thinks that something doesn’t look right on some of these photos when viewed full size? On the model pictures, I’m not seeing the fantastic detail and sharpness that I’ve seen from the sample pics in the various E-M5 reviews, where each pore and fine facial hair are discernible. When viewed at full size, the skin and eyes on these pictures look kind of…rough.

I would guess that it was related to aggressive compression and/or noise reduction, but the JPEG’s are pretty large, and I see the problem even on the low-ISO images.

I’m seriously considering selling my Pentax K-x and my $3000 worth of lenses to switch to the E-M5, but if the image quality on these pictures are typical of the E-M5, then I better rethink my plan, because my old K-x gives me images that are much smoother and much more detailed at equivalent ISO’s.

Does anybody else see what I’m seeing?

There is typical office light used to show what can you get from the system every single day. The images are not from pro studio. Stunning lens! Nothing like this one on the market today! I sadly wish I had this 150/1.8 lens for my Nikon system.

Hi Edgar, I just had a look at the images and I found that I was able to see detail and sharpness in the images that I viewed. I had a look at the last image (bottom right) and the image was good, I was able to see that the model didn’t apply her make up to a good effect as it shows her facial detail quite badly imho.

My only issue/deliberation is would I purchase this lens over the renowed canon 135 f2. And the prices are similar. I have an EOS 1v. Whilst the OMD is my first foray into the digital arena so to speak, I find that the lens is somewhat expensive.

Re: OMD I would say if you can get your hands on the camera see if you can test it out before you commit as you will find that you can customise it in a way that would suit your shooting style. I hope this helps and that whatever camera you decide to use, that you enjoy your photography.

I do like my OMD but at the end of the day it’s just a tool.

I went and looked at the 75mm 1.8/E-M5 pictures on the Four Thirds User site, and my concerns about the E-M5 are now resolved. The pictures on that site look fine when viewed at 100 percent, and all of the fine skin detail is there. The set can be seen at the following link:


I still think there’s something not quite right with the processing of the JPEG images on this site.

Go to SLR Gear site. They just repeat what I said - stunning lens, the best they have ever tested, period.
