price point
In reply to kcinesser, 3 months ago

I think it all boils down to the price

It's a brilliant lens no doubt but its price and its odd focal are the 'detriments' here

if it were $500.00 I'd jump on it today

With the advent of the 40-150mm f2.8 it'd be harder to justify the 75mm if you plan to own the zoom which I intend to

Some would argue prime vs zoom, f1.8 vs f2.8 but a zoom to me is much more versatile in any situation than a single prime

I have the 12-40m f2.8 and retire a whole bunch of primes; I find myself not needing to swap lenses much , nor carry a whole bag of primes

In the end, if you can shell out the dough then by all means

As for me, I'll be waiting for the Pro 40-150mm instead

Cheers
