At the weekend, I purchased the Olympus 45mm f1.8 lens and promptly grabbed some test photos during a photo shoot in The City of London. I was shooting with my Canon EOS 550D with 85mm f1.8 USM lens. This is a photo taken with the E-PM1 with 45mm f1.8 lens. I like the sharpness of the image and how the background is rendered.

What I will say though the E-PM1 is not as good as my Canon 550D under close examination. Noise in the shadow area is worse and there was less detail in the hair when viewed at 100%. It will not be my first choice for photo shoots, but for all other occasions, it will be more than adequate.
