Any reccommendations for indoor portrait lenses for olympus em10? I have the 25mm but find it is still too tight for indoors. Looking for something wider but good in low light.

Lumix 20mm f1.7 version 1 or II. You should be able to find them used for around $200.

But really for portrait, why not 45mm f1.8. I know you want wider but wide portrait isn't as flattering imo.

Great option is Sigma 19mm f2.8 u43 mount. You can find it around $100 to $200.

I once did a non-scientific test with that lens comparison to others. I found it to be super sharp.

Oly 17 f1.7 or the Pan 15 1.7. I do not have any of these so I cannot speak for their quality. I have the Oly 12 f2 that I really like but now you are talking wide.

True that'll be too wide but 17 may be a good option ...

Hello, I own a PanaLeica 15 F1.7 and, for me, it's an amazing lens. Very sharp.
My poor advice is not to take portraits too near.


Nikon D750 - Nikon D7200 - Nikon S33 - Olympus Om10 Mark II
Nikkor, Sigma, Zuiko and PanaLeica lenses.
