Drop $350 on a 45mm prime when you've already got the 14-42mm kit lens?

Re: Drop $350 on a 45mm prime - Hell yes!

The 45/1.8 is excellent.

You could pickup a decent 50/1.8 OM lens and for that tiny investment, you can see how much you use that configuration.

Then add to that experience

  • compactness
  • sharpness
  • lightweight
  • AF
  • nice OOF rendering

and you'll use the native lens 3-4 times more than the legacy one.

Great for animal portraits but you have to watch the DOF carefully:
