I've been thinking about selling my black 45mm and picking up the 4/3 version for my Em1. With the PDAF, AF should be fast enough for portraits and macro work. I gain much higher magnification and weather proofing with the right adapter. Thoughts on this?

I do lose compactness and AF speed but not really concerned about that considering the camera size.

Sounds like a win-win if you don't need the faster AF and extra bit of light gathering capability.
