Perhaps something longer will work better for you. Background blurring with the 25/1.8 is quite limited and the perspective is not suitable for tight portraits. I think you may be happier with the Olympus 45mm, but bear in mind it won't focus from a very close distance (you will need about a foot and a half between camera and subject).

The MCON-PO2 Macro Converter does an OK job of getting the 45/1.8 closer for much cheaper.

Is there anything from Panasonic that does this? It appears Panasonic has more zoomy lenses, Olympus more primes.
