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

I do love the 75mm's built quality, sharpness, bouquet. But it is a specialist lens. If it supported a shorter focus distance it might have been a bit more versatile. I thought I would be able to do more stuff with it. So while I shall not sell mine, I would not label it a must have lens for m43 - I'd pick more versatile lenses first: the 45, the 25, the 100-300. The Voigt 25:0.95. I would also rather part with the 75 than the zuiko 50:2.0. For the price I am a bit disappointed with its single minded focus.

as always, it depends on what personal shooting preferences are.
