The Perfect Portraits Lens
This bright, large aperture F1.7 lens draws maximum light to produces a beautiful bokeh background defocus effect for impressive, more creative images. Together with a 42.5mm mid-telephoto focal distance (35mm camera equivalent 85mm), this lens is more than ideal for clear, detailed and expressive portraits.
Optical Image Stabilizer – Lumix Power O.I.S.
Large aperture lenses can produce an optimum shallow depth of field effect, but even the slightest handshake can also produce out-of-focus images. The Lumix Power O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilizer), however, quickly and reliably compensates for blurring to deliver crisp, super-clear shots even when shooting in low-lit situations.
Fast Auto Focusing - 240 fps Drive Capability
With the Lumix H-HS043K, both lens and camera sync at up to 240 fps* to take full advantage of the camera's high-speed AF system. Its inner-focus drive system and stepping motor performs smoothly and silently during photo and video recording. (*Sensor drive performance varies depending on the camera.)

The Image Stablization helps me a lot as well, though if you have an Olympus camera or one of the few Panasonics that have that, it isn't as much of a concern.
I quite like my Oly 45/1.8 lens for portraits and general use. But my great favorite compact body is the Panny GM5, which doesn't have IBIS, negating the speed advantage of both Oly and most Panny primes.
So this Panny 42.5/1.7 with IS is replacing the Oly in my compact kit. The reviews show it to be at least as good, apparently better in the corners, than the excellent Oly. 58 shots in, I've got one big winner and several shots I like a lot.
It also looks great on the black GM5, so I'm a very happy owner.
Haven't tried out the video yet on the GH4, but looking forward to seeing what this produces in 4K.
