    Just a couple of snaps, never mind the dirty faces.

    I think I am in loooove.

    Sharp at 1.8. Stocked both eyes are in focus.



    I was afraid of the AF, but I found it to be very fast, maybe the lens help?

    No complains here, LOVE it so far =)

    The 45mm f1.8 is the fastest focusing lens I've used on an E-PL1. Much faster than the 20mm f1.7 or 14-42 kit lens and faster than the 17mm f2.8. Great portraits!

    Thanks for the post, I should look into getting one for snapshot of my kid, but I've been having a hard time justifying it since I have manual lenses at 50mm and 55mm and the focal length is similar.

    Good shots. Seems be a great lens for portrait.

    I need this glass urgently.

    Are these your kids? They are gorgeous!

    I have this lens as well and it gets used heaps.

    I would love to see more photos :) 

    The expression of the little girl in the first is definetly a timeless photo. Nice work.

    Lovely. I can't get my so to do anything but look goofy when I have the camera pointed at him.

    Thanks for the comments, sorry for the late response, was away on vacation.

    Yes, they are my girls. My boy didn't want his pic taken =)

    I am very pleased with the camera and lens! Will post pics of vacation soon.
