The Voigtlander 75mm is an interesting lens so you might consider that option too. Whichever 75mm lens you get IMO you definitely need either a tripod, monopod, or in-body stabilization to achieve really good results. I use mine on a E-M1 and it works out quite nicely. Voigtlander also makes a 75mm 1.8 lens too, but I think it is fair to say the Olympus 75mm is an incredible prime lens we all ultimately lust to own and use. Someday I sure hope I can own and use one too.


Even though it is your opinion, it just isn't true, I use the 75mm on my Pany G3, no tripod, monopod bean bag or IBIS, simply keep the shutter speed faster than 150/sec and your good to go. Although I do agree with you on the Voigtlander.
