Hi,

as for me, No. In real life, shooting portraits it is very difficult to get the model (even if it is my wife like in this case) to feel comfortable if you shoot at 0.5 m distance. The 75 FL helps a lot to get blurr irl imo.

The Olympus 45 1.8 focuses down to 1.64' (0.5 m), and the Olympus 75 1.8 focuses down to 33.07" (84.00 cm).  So the 45 1.8 will give you more shallow DOF, no?
