You could get the Olympus 60 f2.8 (for macro) and the Olympus 45 f1.8 (for portraits). But the Olympus is actually a very good portrait lens. And, it will blur the background much better than the Pansonic 45.

The Pleica 45mm does fine with portraits, but that is probably its weakest showing. Both Panasonic (42.5mm) and Oly (45mm) make both compact (f1.7-1.8) and gigantic (f1.2) lenses for portraits, all of which are better than the Pleica.
