    Cons: Corner and edge softness. Not good for growth portrait, landscape.

    Pros: Light, beautiful bokeh, good for close up portraits cinema situations when you need bright lens for web images.

    Summary: If you need extremely sharp lens, turn one's mind to sigma 60 2.8, panasonic 45 1.7. Use it for beautiful pictures.

    Cons: Not weather-protected. Silver color.

    Pros: Incredibly sharp wide open. Almost scary sharp if the subject has, say, rough skin. Amazingly small size and light in weight.

    Summary: Really should have been weather sealed. The designers were overly focused on this as a studio lens.

    Cons: Given this is the typical portrait length and you're going to use it a lot wide open, I expected to be a much better performer in this area. Performance wide open is good (not exceptional), sharp as long as you place you subject in the center but under certain circumstances a strange "glow" or "veiling" is clearly visible.

    Pros: In any regard you couldn't really ask more from 2.8 onward

    Summary: A very good lens for the price,

    Cons: It seems kind of expensive to me. I wish that there was a black version.

    Pros: really fast and really sharp photos! Everyone is saying that the photos I've been taking look professional. Excellent low-light performance.

    Summary: Great for portrait photography. Excellent bokeh. My first m43 lens that I bought for my OMD. Currently looking for lens number 2!

    Cons: nothing so far except for the plastic materials, not stabilized (Panasonic owners take note), durability remains to be seen although performance does not feel cheap

    Pros: very high quality images wide open to f8, tack sharp at f2.8, excellent value with this quality lens, can't go wrong for anybody who are thinking of buying one, fast and accurate focusing even low light

    Summary: one of the best primes for micro four third
