Marla,

on a slightly different subject, how do you like the GX1 and the Oly 45mm work together? Any specifics you would like to point out?

I am looking into getting a GX1 and maybe the Oly 45mm 1.8 and also the 20mm pany.

Thank you

Hi Beat, I've had all three : 45, 20, and 25. As useful as is the 45 to try an emulate DOF control of larger sensor, and as brilliant and sharp wide open as it may be, I still use the 25/1.4 by default 90% of the time, because it offers nearly as much subject isolation Along with much more "character", almost like an older, manual lens, with micro contrast and color depth in spades. The 45 is very nice but a little "sterile" looking to me (as in clinical). The 20 is great for pocketability, but once you've shot the 25, it gets no love...

To be brief, the 45 is great to have, but the 25 is a good notch above. Both work great and focus very fast on the gx1.
