    This is the first opportunity I've had to shoot portraits with the E-M5 and 45/1.8 lens. All I can say is wow. I don't miss my Canon 40D one bit :)

    Very nice portrait!

    Definitely a winning combination of camera and lens.

    Nice portrait. Looks almost a bit like a halo around the guy. Is that post-processing or just a result of the lighting?

    It's from the lighting. It was overcast and most of the light was reflecting off the water behind him.

    That looks good, I think that I want that lens. I have been looking at that lens for a while but that shot may have just pushed me over the edge.....

    I can't recommend it highly enough. I absolutely loved the 20/1.7 and used it almost exclusively on my E-PL1. But I bought the 45 when I got my EM5 and now the 20 doesn't get much playing time ;-)
