The 85 mm is a portrait lens, not unlike the 45mm f1.8 Oly for m43.

The 45mm f1.8 on Oly m43 would be like a 60mm f2.4 on NX, so the 60mm f2.8 would be a closer comparison.

No, because that is macro lens. The Oly and the Sammy are both portrait lenses. I know about the crop factors (90 versus 128 mm).

To match APS-C 85mm f1.4, Olympus would have to make a 65mm f1.1! No need to be so exact, I guess, but this is something missing from u43 lineup so far: a super-bright prime telephoto.

I think 90 mm f 1.8 at 35 mm format is a very nice portrait lens. First sample pics of it show that to be the case. I think 130 mm is really at the upper part of the range for nice portraits but it is okey. But very few people in m43 forum are actually asking for this lens. Most wanted a 40-50mm portrait lens and we just got that.
