One needs to keep camera-to-subject distance fairly close and shoot wide open to maximize background bokeh, but this lens demonstrates very good portrait sharpness when shot wide open and excellent subject isolation with short camera to subject distances. Olympus has hit a grand slam with the 45/1.8. For my money, this lens is a must have for my m4/3 kit. Lumix G3 w/ Zuiko 45mm f/1.8 lens ISO 200 shot at f/1.8.
