Yeah. Sure. It's almost as expensive as the Otus 50mm lens for DSLRs......(sarcasm).

Canon EF 1.8/50mm costs about EUR 80 (GBP 75?) and is an excellent lens when stopped down to f/2.8-4. Maybe the Olympus is a little bit better wide open and probably it has higher mechanical quality - however the Canon has better DOF control (m43 equiv. would be f/0.9 25mm).

definitely expensive.
