I _really_ like this lens on my Olympus om-d em-1.  It focuses quickly, and where it's in focus, it's tack sharp, and the bokeh is as smooth as could be desired. It does landscapes: A mountain in the Eastern Sierras Candids: In the hot springs Portraits: On a hike Sports in a relatively dark gym: On the run For what it is-- a 150mm equivalent lens-- I find it to be as perfect as I could ask for.

http://robertevangelista.blogspot.com/2015/12/olympus-75-mm-18-robin.html I don't own this lens yet. However on the short time I was able to test it. Here are what made me fall in love with this lens. 1.) Allows me to step back and be unnoticed . 2.) Great Compression for Portraits. 3.) Speed that Complements the focal length 4.) Great balance between Sharpness and Bokeh. Gives enough DOF to keep all parts of the subject in focus while separating the subject from the Background. 5.) Dynamic ...

This is a quick review of the M Zuiko f1.8, a lens already reviewed and appreciated by many. I've had mine for about 2 months and I love it. I previously used an old Olympus OM 85mm f2 for similar purposes on 43 and m43. First impressions are very positive. It's about twice the size of the popular M Zuiko 45mm f1.8, but the build is much better, at least from the outside. It's all metal, save for the lens cap. Feels nice and premium to the touch, but it's not as heavy as some old legacy ...

I thought I would add my thoughts to the forum on my 75mm Zuiko which I have now had for a year. May I say outright if I could only keep only one lens from my collection based on the quality of its delivery this would be the one. Its nicely balanced, doesn't look like the short telephoto it is, its surprisingly versatile (more later) is super sharp and the f1.8 allows use in dim lit situations you just wouldn't normally think of trying. My passion is architecture and buildings which I can ...

I only have a few lenses, an all-around zoom + a macro and fisheye lens.  Was looking for something for taking photos at the park or portrait pics.  This seems to be quite a fun lens to play with, as it has a wide range of situations it appears to be comfortable in.  I don't think I have much to say that the other reviews have not said already, so a picture!

As one reviewer said just buy it. Another said "if you have a use for it". If you shoot people, landscapes night street scenes, indoor sports, theater and other performance art, you HAVE a use for this lens. To let some pictures do the talking first ... Some people samples .. Kids Littlies .. Some Low (sometimes extremely low) light samples Music - I couldn't even SEE some of these musicians esp the camera tech lady, I saw only a silhouette.  THe OMF VF to the rescue. Footloose The 75 (and ...

Everything has been said already. If you like the focal range, there's no better lens; sharp, beautiful bokeh, fast, no ugly artifacts, well built, cool design, and it's almost pocketable.

Just buy it. I can't really add anything that hasn't already been said. The lens excels in everything you would want it to excel in. Razor sharp. very low in optical aberrations, coma, astigmatism, and distortion. Absolutely wonderful bokeh! If you can justify the cost based on your style of photography, get one.

I bought this lens after seeing a friend's amazing portraits taken with it, checking samples on Flickr, and reading the praise it has received in online reviews. I also wanted to get some great shots of my baby daughter while she was still an infant, and getting in too close distracts her too much - she stops doing whatever makes the image worth taking :) Also, I did some concert photography for a band and found myself having to get in too close because my brightest/fastest lens was not a zoom. ...
