A must have for MFT portrait photographers!
The MFT chart of this lens speaks for itself for the most part, but there's definitely much more to this lens then the chart. Because the focal length is slightly greater than the traditional 135mm, the angle of view maybe little narrower for those who are accustomed to the 135mm angle. However, this lens compensates for such difference. In my opinion, the lens is simply the best prime lens in the MFT system, along with Leica DG 42.5mm Nocticron.

Fantastic Portrait Lens!
I highly recommend this lens for portraiture or anything you need a 150mm 35mm equivalent focal length. However, do yourself a favor and get it with the Portrait Lens Kit. You not only get the 45mm 1.8, you get really nice lens hoods for each. This lens is razor sharp, fast at 1.8, and produces a nice shallow depth of field and beautiful bokeh! The build quality is fantastic - it is solid and the focusing ring is smooth. The only thing more I could ask for is the weather sealing that they have on the Pro lenses, but otherwise this lens is perfect!

Comfortable, easy to pack and great image quality.
The metal exterior makes it prone to breakage, for the clumsy people out there! Very sharp image quality, my favourite lens to use. Not too heavy and is at a comfortable size, despite the exterior. Focus is instantaneous, which makes for quick snaps!

Superb Bokeh!
This lens is a must for shooting portraits. It's perfect to create a creamy bokeh around your subject. It's fast and reliable. It's perfect to capture candid shots from afar.

Phenomenal Lens
This lens is an absolute beast. The bokeh is buttery smooth, the colors pop, and f1.8 aperture makes it easy to shoot in all conditions. Only thing to keep in mind is the shortest focal distance is a little long - would be nice to use this lens to photograph just the eyes but alas that is too close. This is the lens that stays on my camera most of the time. The Olympus 45mm f1.8 is a nice enough lens but doesn't come even close. The only lens that comes close is the Pana Leica 42.5mm f1.2, but that lens costs several times more.
