    I hate you! I can't afford this lens and would have been fat dumb and happy if I didn't know it existed.

    Holy macaroni! This lens is SHARP wide open! Congratulations, Amin!
    Hope to get my hands on it during PhotoForum`14 in Moscow.

    YES! We need as many early adopters as possible to supply the second hand market.

    Looking good. I wonder how it will fare against the voigtlander 42.5mm.

    A very very nice lens. It reminds me about the Leica R & M 90mm F2 Summicron.

    Well Done!

    Without the co-operation with Leica, Panasonic won't produce such an excellent lens with" Leica Magic".

    Alternatively, no so the price drops a little. Then buy, and have a better second hand market price =)

    Dare I say that DOF is almost too thin wide open? (That's a good thing.)

    Well, 45mm 1.8 also performed well on head shots. What about full body portraits? This is a very weak spot in the mu43 world.
