Re: The point is

I like the FOV that Zuiko 135mm gives me on my FT cameras, because it represents a pretty long, bright telephoto at a fraction of the cost of any close alternatives.

For example, I like to shoot indoor volleyball. The standard telephoto zoom 40-150mm requires too long shutter speeds & the 150mm f/2 is way out of my budget. Since most of the action in volleyball is relatively easy to predict, I don't have a problem pre-focusing and wait with my finger on the shutter button (from a comfortable distance & thus easy isolating the subject I'm trying to capture).

Not to mention how lightweight and small this lens is for its reach...
