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?


If you have to ask here, than no. The 75 is more of a "specialized" type lens and if you don't know, and are happy with the 45, and are mentioning the price

Good point.

I have a really mentaly tough buying process and it takes a long time and plenty of tests from  "no" to "yes". I am still at "no" though.
