Panasonic Lumix G Leica DG Macro–Elmarit 45mm f/2.8 ASPH OIS at olympuslensreview

"The Panasonic 45mm lens is one heck of an interesting lens. You can get this lens from either Amazon (Best Price + FREE Shipping), B&H Photo or Adorama.

This is a lens that is co-developed by Leica and Panasonic. Yes, Leica, the big daddy of expensive photography equipment (Note: Leica is often read EXPENSIVE in the photography world).And interestingly enough, this is also the first Macro lens made for the Micro Four Thirds system.
The 45mm length is equivalent to a full format of 90mm which is the perfect focal length to shoot macro.
In terms of optical performance, you can expect Leica quality. It is very sharp both on the center and on the borders. All the optical defect are kept to a minimum as well.

Build quality is also stellar. The materials used are of the highest quality.
There is also the Image Stabilization feature which works very well up to 3 stops.
If you are looking for a Macro lens or a portrait lens for your Micro Four Thirds camera… then you only have one options – this lens!

However, be prepared to spend the money. At around $900 USD, this is definitely not a cheap lens by all means."
