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.

An absolute masterpiece
This lens is amazing. Although large for an m43 prime, it's still astonishingly compact for a 150mm equivalent lens. Compare it to a full frame long prime and it's no contest. On top of that, it's blisteringly sharp starting from f/1.8, and is actually one of my fastest focusing lenses. One of the best things about this lens is it's rendering. Can't quite put a finger on it, but images captured with this lens have a magical pop to them, rich colors, excellent contrast, very smooth bokeh. With the 2x multiplication at f/1.8, it allows for just the right amount of depth of field for portraits while allowing plenty of creative control that you simply can't get with a variable aperture zoom that is typically at f/4 or higher at that focal length. I often go out with a wider prime and just this lens, and I'm covered with a very minimal, high quality kit. Highly recommended!
