Re: Buy the 35-100 and Oly 45/1.8
In reply to JoeMoMo, 7 months ago

I'm curious if you think the 45/1.8 would be a great addition for someone like myself who already has both the 12-35/2.8 and the 35-100/2.8.

I have the three lenses, and the 45 is a killer portrait lens, assuming you can get close. So the value judgement essentially devolves to realistically assessing how much close-range portraiture you do or wish to do. 99% of everything else can be done as well with the zooms, and if there's any pace involved you're a lot more likely to be ready and framed correctly when the right instant arrives.
