Re: Olympus 45/1.8 & 60/2.8

I agree with what has been said before about those two lenses (much faster AF and better low light capabilities on the tiny 45 mm; 60 mm for dedicated macro use incl. weather sealing).

Apart from the obvious tasks for these lenses (portrait vs. macro) I also found some other purposes. The 45mm is a good event lens at fairs/ festivals etc. with a useful focal length when you get used to it and fast focus, the max. aperture also helps. The 60 mm is a good outdoor short-telephoto lens with weathersealing and the retractable lenshood is really convenient but you have to buy it extra (lens hood for the 45mm is sold separately as well).
