p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Prime Lens for my new Olympus Pen E-PL7


I just got an Olympus Pen E-PL7 for my vacation camera because I have some nice glass for my Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera!

The question is, I am looking for decent priced (nothing fancy) prime lens. I currently have the amazing Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 12-35mm f/2.8 and a cheaper wide angle Olympus 9mm f8.0 Fisheye Body Cap Lens. 

I would like one that would be good for portraits! (remember nothing too fancy) 

Thanks a lot!!

Olympus 45mm f/1.8, it's tiny and sharp and they are usually under $250 used.

The Panasonic 25/1.4 or 25/1.7 are also very good options/alternatives.

I ran across some Sigma Prime M43 lenses! How do these compare to the Olympus lenses?

As far as Sigma lenses go...I don't see any point to the 19 f/2.8 or 30 f/2.8 given what your use will be and what you already have. The 30 f/1.4 and 60 f/2.8 would be worth considering. The 60 in particular has a reputation for being very sharp.

Either the Panasonic 42.5/1.7 or Olympus 45/1.8 would be worth looking into as well.
