Good review. Not sure I agree about the fast lenses part. I have the PL 25mm and the Oly 45mm. They are both great wide open.

Thank you. I have to admit that I haven't tried one of the fast lenses but m43 compared to full frame means about 2 stops difference in DOF. Combined with a shorter focal length i.e. 45mm compared to 90mm DOF is even larger.

So the 1.8/45mm acts more like a 4/90mm lens on a full frame. Something that can be achieved with the slow standard lens. Which is not impressive for subject to background separation.

If you put a real fast lens like the 1.2/85 or the 1.4/85 on a full frame camera it is a completely different story.

If you want to have shallow DOF m43 is the wrong choice. If this is not important than it is a very good choice with lot's of good and compact lenses.
