CONCLUSION:  So to wrap up this review, we gave the Olympus 45mm f/1.2 PRO series lens a  47/50 and our HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating.

THE FINAL WORD:  If you’re a professional photographer who’s made the switch to M43 then I think the 45mm f/1.2 PRO series lens is a bit of a no brainer, especially if you’re a photographer who makes his or her’s living on portraits, it’s an ideal full frame equivalent portrait focal length of 90mm, which is in the wheelhouse for a lot of portrait photographers, so in that sense you simply cannot go wrong.  However, if you’re an enthusiast who bought into the M43 system to give yourself better image quality than your latest generation camera phone, then I think your money is probably better spent on the Olympus 45mm f/1.8 - it isn’t built nearly as well, but optically it’s pretty amazing especially for that kind of money.  But in the end, the 45mm f/1.2 PRO series lens from Olympus is a pretty great option, even if that option costs $1,199.
