Olympus M. Zuiko 45mm F/1.2 PRO reviews
I am new to micro 4/3 and wanted a best in class portrait lens. I own Canon 1Dx DSLRs and a lot of high end L series lenses including the 85 f/1.4L IS and a 200 F/1.8L. I have extremely high standards when it comes to glass. I wanted a best in class portrait lens for micro four thirds and selected the 45 1.2. All I can say after using it is this lens is very special. At 1.2 the bokeh is creamy smooth and just beautiful. It is sharp wide open and crazy sharp stopped down. The chromatic aberration is also very well controlled. It is expensive for micro four thirds but this lens delivers everything you could ask for in a portrait lens.
Pros: Beautiful Bokeh, Great Sharpness, Well Controlled CA

More details on the Olympus M. Zuiko 45mm F/1.2 PRO
Micro Four Thirds Mount: The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 45mm f/1.2 PRO lens has a Micro Four Thirds mount, and is compatible with the Olympus PEN and OM-D interchangeable lens cameras.
Lens Construction: The 45mm f/1.2 PRO lens delivers superior optical performance due to the multiple lens elements that make up its construction. There are 14 lens elements in 10 groups, including 1 ED lens, 1 Aspherical lens, and 4 HR lens elements to eliminate spherical and chromatic aberrations. The lens also features Z Coating Nano lens coatings to eliminate lens flares and ghosting caused by in-frame light sources.
Weather-resistant: The M.Zuiko 45mm PRO lens features premium metal construction that is hermetically sealed in 17 locations to protect the inner workings from moisture and dust. The lens is not only splashproof and dustproof, but is freezeproof down to 14°F (-10°C) to complement the weatherproof camera body of the Olympus OM-D line.
Auto Focus: The M.Zuiko Digital lens is equipped with a lightweight internal focusing element that gives you blazing fast autofocus performance. The lens has silent autofocus and aperture mechanisms to make the lens Movie and Still Compatible (MSC). Most OM-D cameras have a Silent Mode with an electronic shutter that let you focus and shoot in complete silence.
Manual Focus Clutch: The 45mm f/1.2 PRO lens features a manual focus clutch on the focus ring to let you instantly shift from autofocus to manual focus. The clutch allows you to manually preset a focus position using the distance meter. When you pull the clutch ring toward you from the AF mode, the lens returns to the preset focus position.
Lens Hood: The lens comes with the LH-66B lens hood. The hood protects the front lens element from rain, snow, and moisture, and keeps unwanted light from entering the lens causing flare. The lens hood, when mounted on the lens, adds approximately 3" to the overall length of the lens. When not in use, you can reverse-mount the hood onto the lens for storage.
