QUICK SHOT COMPARISON: Olympus 45 f/1.2 vs Canon 85 f/1.4L
I have the beastly Canon 85 f/1.4 lens here and it’s a beauty for sure, but man is it HUGE. Just for fun, I decided to attach it to my Sony A7RIII and snap a quick shot of my Stepdaughter Katie. I the took out the EM1 MKII that had the 45 f/1.2 on it and snapped one after that. As always, I let the cameras expose the scene, and shot both wide open as I was not trying to match DOF here, but instead to show the difference between an 85 f/1.4 on full frame and a 45 f/1.2 on Micro 4/3. Below are the OOC results, click it for larger! You must click in fact because if not, they will look soft and muted. This will show you the difference between Olympus’s fastest glass and your typical fast portrait prime at f/1./4. The Olympus is so much smaller and lighter than that Canon and while it offers less DOF, what it does offer is quite nice!
