50mm f/1.4 Olympus Lens

The Olympus OM G.Zuiko lenses are quite compact (like this 50mm f/1.4) and fit pretty well on Olympus OM-D cameras like the E-M5 Smile

Bokeh is nice, and the lens can be very sharp when stopped down:

You can also get some interesting effects when shooting into the light, including loss of contrast, and some lens flare, although the lens is still capable of producing sharp results:

It produces a very nice soft-looking image, but aren't the lenses themselves beautiful!
