I'm at about the 4 month mark in my m4/3 conversion from Canon. I'm finding I have almost no shots with either the 14-42 II or the 45mm f1.8 - aside from some random testing. The 14-42 just doesn't come out of the bag much considering I have the 15mm f1.7 and 25mm f1.8 and other lenses for longer shots. I really don't know why I am not using the 45mm f1.8 because it seems like it would be a very useful lens. Just seems like I always go for the 25mm f1.8 or 60mm macro. 45mm and 25mm seem to give very similar output and be useful in similar conditions, and the 25mm is more versatile. And when going out with a small kit, the 60mm seems like a more useful companion to the 25mm. Not sure where I am going with this. It just seemed interesting that these were two lenses that everyone (and my own logic) said were no-brainer lenses and then I'm not using them really at all day-to-day.
