The 45mm does NOT come with a lens hood (£30 extra) whereas the 60mm does. However, allegedly the sigma lens hood isn't very good as it is designed for the APS-C and thus is a bit 'wide'.

I use my 45mm on a GX1 so I don't get stabilisation which is fine for portraits (where I need higher shutter speed anyway to freeze the subject), but not so good for video. The 45 is also a stop faster which helps attain an adequate shutter speed. So my conclusion is that on a Panasonic body that doesn't have IBIS, then the 45 is OK but the 60 is more doubtful (at least for my uses).

Hoods are cheap, nothing like £30.
