If you spend time on the camera forums, the “experts” there will complain about the “crop factor” applying to depth-of-field as well as field of view. The cruz of the complaint is to infer that you cannot get an out-of-focus background with such cameras because f/5.6 is really more like f/11.

What is a Critique?
I have been thinking about critiques a lot lately, so I decided to look the word up. Google, Merriam-Webster, and Dictionary.com all have similar definitions, so for the purpose of this post I will paraphrase and combine a few and go with:
a detailed analysis and assessment of something
evaluate in a detailed and analytical way
to review or analyze critically
If I were a portrait photographer on a budget, (or a concert photographer or indoor sports photographer) and wanted a super, duper, sharp lens that was very fast (f/1.8) and at the same time relatively small, compact and light weight, my first choice, every time, would be the M. ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 75MM F1.8!
I bought this lens in 2013. I bought it before I was an Olympus Visionary. I bought it because I rented it for a tutorial I was writing and fell in love with it. Back then I was still a Canon shooter for birds/wildlife because Olympus hadn’t yet come out with the OM-D E-M1 MK II and the 300 f/4 IS Pro Lens.
As we struggle with the isolation mandated by the pandemic, photography seems more important than ever. The ability to reconnect with happier times by looking through our photographs is truly a gift.
I am reminded of so many great photographic experiences as I look through all the old hard drives, prints, books, magazines, featuring my images.
The Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mark III with M.Zuiko 12-45 mm f/4 Pro Lens is very video capable.
The pair are being sold as a kit in either black or silver. I prefer black since it minimizes the possibility of stray reflections off the silver camera body.
Simplicity in photography has always appealed to me. Many of my best-selling bird photos are just simple, naturally and front-lit bird portraits. A close up of the bird against a clean, distraction-free, background. This always appeals to me because at the core of photography is the need to tell a story or convey a concept to the viewer.
