The 50mm F2.0 Macro is a beautiful portrait lens.

The 50-200 F2.8-F3.5 is pretty good too.

Don't discount the SIGMA 105mm f2.8 as well.


I feel anything that can give you F4 and below between 50mm=100mm will do well as a portrat lens.

Check out four thirds sub forum and search for adrewine. he uses kit lense to take beautiful portraits.

So it is not the sword. It is the swordman.

Try using the OM lenses for Olympus.

I'm currently using the 28mm F3.5 and the 50mm F1.8.
Using an OM-4/3 adapter, it will give u 2X focal length.

It a cheaper alternative.
Try it, quality not bad BUT no auto-focus.
