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!

This lens is, by far, the most impressive lens in my arsenal! Just looking at it, with it's massive front element, you can see the potential of light gathering. It's aluminum housing and it's noticeable weight give it a solid, quality feel, and he focus ring in butter smooth Though this lens makes an excellent portrait lens, I have found that, with an Automatic Macro Extension tube, it takes impressive macros. Low light shooting is sweet, and I have used it at many events to capture so many keepers that it is hard to choose between them. If you need a low light lens, and love to isolate your subject with incredible background Bokeh, look no further than this lens.

Dream lens
Sometimes you only understand how valuable things are when they are gone. My 75 mm 1.8 got stolen when moved to a new place. I needed urgent replacement for my favorite portrait lens and bought it again. This lens is awesome for close ups, and less for group portraits - with 150 mm eq you would be at yelling distance. Focus tends to be fast - I observed focus hunting in low light situations.

Perfect lens
I finally purchased this jewel of a lens and I can only second all the previous rave reviews. The lens is sharp wide open with a nice bokeh. The compact size and low weight makes it a prefect fit in my m4/3 lens collection which includes the 12, 17, 45 and 60 macro. This is also one of the lenses that will challenge me to be more creative in my photography.
