Re: The Olympus 75mm, tell me why I "need" it.

There are two real problems with the 75mm:

  • The focal length.
  • The lack of a lens hood or anything else than caps.

Some would argue price is a problem too but you get what you pay for.

You appear to be prepared for the focal length, so the greatest problem is eliminated. As for the lens hood, I recommend not giving Olympus money for their ridiculous omission of it on a luxury lens: to add insult to injury their hoods have been hard to find at times. Do a search for 'olympus 75mm hood' and you'll find better options.

That being said, I hope you have fun with this lens. Some testers say it is the best there is, and there is no shortage of nice images.
