the 12/2 and 45/1.8 are niche lenses..

Niche lenses? Say what!? EVERYBODY has been screaming for a fast portrait prime for a long time.

i doubt the 45 will be any better than an adapted 50/1.8 for $60

As a big proponent of my adapted 50/1.8 (which I love), I can say that if the new 45mm f/1.8 is anything like the 4/3 50mm f/2 Macro, it will be sharp corner to corner wide-open, and I will gladly retire my old legacy 50mm.

While adapted 50mm lenses stopped down to f/2.8 are generally pretty good, wide-open they are not sharp at all and generally have horrible internal light bouncing.
