Probably there is someone in the same situation.

I have an OM-D and have been using the 45mm 1.8 as a portrait lens. I really like it, but now wonder if I should also get the Oly 75mm.

My concern is if it will really make a night and day difference in comparison with the 45mm, specially in terms of shallow DOF and overall quality for portraits (mainly of my newborn daughter, who is now the inevitable model of all my pics). Do you think the FOV is too awkward?

After all, the USD 900 price tag isn´t that cheap for family photos...

Anyone has experience with both lenses?

Do you need the reach of 150mm (equiv.)? If not, stick to the 45mm.

Do you absolutely need a prime with f1.8 aperture? If not, get the 35-100/2.8.

For family photos, 45mm would be more than enough, for group shots, I'd go wider really.
