Another review closer to home.

There's nothing wrong with it, I just find it a tad uninspiring. f2.8 if not fast enough for shallow DoF work, and the focus limiter needs a third position.

I much prefer the 25 and the Oly 45.

Here is one:

45's compared head to head midway down the page. Now they've also test other prime lenses and the 45 macro stacks up well against any of the m4/3 native lenses.

I have to say I find the Panny 45 macro the weakest of my M43 lenses. Nothing wrong with it as such, but it does not stand out. I'd wait for the 60mm.
