Thanks a lot (and thanks everyone else too)

I sent out the question originally b/c I thought I could end up feeling the way you do. Although I can hand hold pretty well. I'm really tempted but I think I'll work with the 45 for awhile and use my Panasonic telephoto zoom which actually is pretty darn good but without the nice background blur.  With the money I save maybe I'll buy a GH3

have decided to return the 75 because on my GH2 to get the REALLY sharp image this less is known for you have to use at least 1/150. I can get REASONABLE images at 1/100 but I really feel hampered by the necessity to up the ISO to get the shutter speeds I need in low light.

I also didn't like the feel of the very loose focus ring.

The lens balances beautifully on the GH2 and sure makes it easier to hold the camera than the 20mm GH2 combo!

Guess I'll use the 45 and crop a bit more to get the length I want. I love the 45.
