Re: The main issue for using the 45 up close is perspective distortion

You are quite right, sorry.  It fills a 135 role, 135 being a common length in old money, but it is of course a 150.  I didn't bother to multiply 75 by 2.  Nonetheless, my point is valid.

Eh?  As far as I am concerned a 45mm f1.8 on MFT should behave exactly like a 90mm f3.6 on FF.  And that's OK, but not always shallow enough, hence the 75mm f1.8, which is a 135 f3.6, which is shallow as anyone needs to go.

I'd have said 150. YMMV.
