That does not make any sense.  The Olympus 45mm has a 45mm field of view, or what a ~90mm would produce on a full frame camera.  An old 85mm lens has an 85mm field of view, which produces what a ~170mm lens would look like on a full-frame camera.  If the OP wants an 85mm lens then the Oly 45 is far too wide.  If he wants an 85mm-equivalent field of view then the people recommending 85mm lenses are giving very bad advice.
