Olympus 45mm f/1.8 - wow!

Hi! I'm a reasonably new m4/3 user, having dabbled in quite a few systems.

I picked up the Olympus 45mm f/1.8 and an EPM1 over the holiday period but hadn't spent much time with it. Today I thought I would go for a walk and see what it can do.

In a word, wow! It is so sharp wide-open and the bokeh is beautiful. The Olympus JPEGs are everything I have heard about them - saturated and beautiful.

I am thinking of taking this lens + picking up the 12mm f/2 for travel this year - can anyone who has experience with using this combination to cover everything recommend this?

Comments and suggestions welcome!
