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

Good lens, but you may feel "cramped" indoors.

Seems like some people who replied missed that point.

45mm (90mm equivalent for full frame) is quite long. But you can experience what it will be like by zooming in all the way on your kit lens and then walking around in places similar to where you would like to take pictures. You will quickly find out whether 45mm will feel cramped indoors.

Currently my only fast prime is the 20mm f/1.7 and even that sometimes feels cramped indoors.
