A Must for every Micro Four Thirds Bag

Excerpt: This is arguably one of the best lenses in the Micro Four Thirds format. It's small, light and pin-sharp right into the corners. It yields a pleasant Bokeh but of course has all the DOF limitations of the format (this is effecitvely a 90mm f/3.6 lens on a full frame system), but it beats just about anything else in terms of its corner to corner to sharpness.It doesn't have stabilization so it's perhaps best suited for Pen and OMD cameras from Olympus which have IBIS, and...
Pros: Durable, Extremely Sharp, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Value for money
Excerpt: a must have lens - very sharp - very nice Bokeh - very light - maybe not the best looking lens but optics super good - as it is small build quality is fine - there is no IS so one would be better of using on a Olympus with builtin body IS or the Panasonic GX7
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: Great, small, high quality lens. Focus is super fast and quiet. Images are of high quality. I prefer prime lenses and this one is a super performer in a very small form factor. my copy takes a bit of force to mount it in the bayonet - not sure if all versions of this lens have the same issue, but it take much more force than with my Oly 17mm f1.8. It's hard to be critical of this lens, but weather sealing on these Oly primes would be a nice feature.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, High Quality Image, Lightweight, Versatile focal length
A nikon DSLR shooter about to switch to Micro 4/3s

Summary: This was my first Olympus lens for use with my first olympus camera the Olympus OM-D E-M5. Great lens and great camera. Picture quality, all I could ask, sharp, sharp, sharp wonderful color. The F/1.8 is great for low light capture, wonderful bokeh, Weight: I received the lens a day before I received the camera and first thoughts were it must be a toy the lens is paper weight and so small, however it is really beautiful to look at not that that matters much, the lens is...
Excerpt: Till I got this little light-weight baby, I was using the regular kit lens for my party photos. This lens is awesome, in fact so awesome, that a die-hard Canonian friend of mine wants to get a micro-four thirds body just so he can use it!!
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh
Excerpt: I use two systems, a Nikon D800 with a good selection of lenses and my Oly EM-1, also with a nice selection of lenses and this 45mm 1.8, in terms of intended use, compares to my Nikkor 85mm 1.4. This M Zuiko 45mm is a very nice lens, very sharp with good bokeh and I have had some fantastic results using it for portraits as well as other shots where I wanted a shallow DOF.
Pros: Compact Size, Fast aperture, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Sharp Focus
Cons: Not A Pro Series Lens, Not weather resistant
Excerpt: This lens produces very sharp images, i'm loving it. Just not used to the focal lenght yet but besides that, i've been really enjoying it. It was very hard fitting it to my OMD E-M10 at first, it seems like you have to break in the mount into the camera and now it its smoother, but that is a concern on quality control, probably of the camera though
