I am considering acquiring a native Micro Four Thirds 45mm lens to replace my Canon FD 50mm that I have been using for the short telephoto range until now. I have been particularly impressed by reports of the Olympus 45mm lens's quality, as well as its compact size. However, I also rather like the idea of macro photography, and miss the ability that I had with my small sensor Canon G10 to take photographs really rather close up. The Panasonic 45mm is currently the only available macro, although it is larger and bulkier (I have quite a small camera bag on purpose - the Lowepro MLC Classic 100) and a stop and a half slower than the Olympus, as well as not quite as sharp (from what I have read). I am aware of the forthcoming Olympus 60mm macro, which complicates things rather further. If anyone here is or has been in a similar situation, I should be very interested in thoughts on the topic!
