Good grief, Roel! A Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 + adapter + EC-14 + EX-25??? That's quite a stack for a ยต4/3 camera. How far did it stick out in front of the camera? 40cm???

Jim this is what it looks like (excuse the poor iphone quality):

Mind you, the shots shown before are only with Rokinon+adapter or Rokinon+EC-14+adapter. none with the EX-25 also.

Quite possible to handle.

I could (would) not afford the 75mm f/1.8 for quite a long time. Then I managed to get a used one in truly mint condition for a very good price. As you noted, the 75mm f/1.8 is just a stellar performer; it has no flaws. In some ways, I'd call its performance "magical." It's well worth the wait if the photographer needs to save up the cash.

Oh, the 75mm was indeed a great performer in those few moments I had it on my camera.

And there probably is one with my name on it, someday.

But not right now.
