OK, this one or 60mm macro ? .
Too bad Olympus didn't make the macro 75mm and this lens 60mm, then I would consider it. 75mm is awkward FL for me unless for macro. Given the price difference, I'd take the macro. In fact you get the 60 macro and superb 45 f/1.8 for similar money as 75.
75 may be awkward for some people but not so for others.
A 75/1.8 lens will give you a nicer/softer background blur than a 60/1.8 lens. And when a 1.6x or 2x TC comes along (as it will eventually) the 75/1.8 will make a nice 120/2.8 or 150/4 lens.
Currently the 75 is my most used lens and the 60 is my least used. The 45 and 25 falls somewhere in-between, for me.
