So far I just have the 14-42mm II and the sigma 19mm

Ah, well, in that case, if it were me, it would be a relatively easy decision: I'd get the Sigma 60, on the theory that the lens I've already got gets me to 42mm. The difference between the 45's f1.8 aperture and the 14-42's f2.8 aperture would be less important to me than the difference between the 42mm and the 60mm focal lengths.

But as others have no doubt suggested, it all depends on what you're doing with the lenses.


He said he has the 14-42 II, not the 12-40... So it's f5.6 vs f1.8.

I'd get the 45mm, and I did (second lens I bought after the 20/1.7), tho I gotta confess I'm intrigued by the longer focal length too and I intend to get the Sigma 60 for my mother (who has the 12-35 f2.8 and thus the Sigma might be a better fit), so I'll be trying it out.
