Olympus 45mm F/1.2 Pro vs. Olympus 45 F1.8
3

Stevehuffphoto.com posted an article comparing the Olympus pro ($1,199) vs the 45mm F1.8 ($249).

On his site, you can see that the pro lens has a slightly better and smoother bokeh.  I took Joe Edelman's technique (see the youtube URL below) and applied this technique to the picture taken with the 45mm F1.8 ($249) lens.  This technique took 2 minutes to apply.

The pictures below are the results.  The first picture taken with the pro lens, and the second picture taken with the F1.8 ($249) lens and the technique applied.

The question to decide is 2 minutes of time and $1,000 worth the difference?
