Re: +1 Yes, the Oly 45mm

For portraits, the Oly 45mm is unbeatable - and a good $ value too. As a general purpose lens though, you may find the 45mm focal length / field of view too limiting and closely cropped.

Myself, I'm a fan of the classic 35mm equivalent - so for me, the new Oly 17mm 1.8 is the perfect lens for everyday walk-around use. Fast, silent focusing (for video), good low-light performance and nice Oly color rendering are pluses as well.

Cheers,

Neil
