A 'balanced view', Trollio?

An informed view also understand that not only in the Oly 45mm 1.8 a far better lens than any 50mm 1.8 from either Nikon or Canon, but there are also other lenses that you failed to mention.

And no one rational would attempt to talk about the relative value for DOF for a lens that isn't even out yet, when there are others that are better suited for it.

Try actually know what you're talking about when you talk with people who do.

You won't look like such a fool.

Yes, there are M4/3 lenses that easily give shallow DOF.

Again, please try and actually know what you're talking about before actually talking.

A balanced view would acknowledge that a few M34 and 43 lenses are f/1.8 or f/2. But they are expensive compared to APSC.

The Nikon 50mm 1.8 is just half the price of Oly 45mm 1.8, and just 70 grams heavier.

The Pany 12-35 2.8 is $1299? The 43 f/2 version is > $2k!

BY comparison, the Tamron 17-50 2.8 is good and cheap. It's (non-VC version) only a little larger than 12-35!!!!!!

Screw your head on straight before you jump on others.

M43 has virtues, but cheap fast lenses is not one of them.
