Re: Voigtlander Heliar 75mm f/1.8

I have the 75mm Hellar 1.8 and the 75mm 2.5 Voigtlander lenses. Get the Olympus when it is available. Based on all the reviews it is one heck of a lens. The only "mirrorless camera" I can focus manually on with a degree of accuracey is the Ricoh GXR because of its focus peaking. Olympus and Panasonic do not have that.

As for the 75mm being 150mm on the Olympus EM5 hand holding can get a little hard as far as targeting. I use it on a tripod. Of course remember you will also need the micro 4/3 to Leica M adapter.
