I've been through numerous threads here regarding the Olympus "must have" primes, the 12, 40 and 75.  I must confess that I am a tried and true addict of zoom lenses as I find the versatility of them to be so useful and adaptable for any given situation.  I have had primes before, 50 mm macros and my first tele lens was a 135.  The only prime that I have very fond memories of, prior to shooting digital, was the Nikon AF DC-Nikkor 105mm f/2D.  This lens was absolutely gorgeous and the images it produced were of equal quality.  I utilized this lens.ii..

You didn't utilize it. You ‚Äč it.

I'm not a big fan of "utilize" over "use," but there's nothing incorrect about "utilized" here. "Utilize" means "put to use," which is exactly what the OP did with his lens.

I don't know. Not according to the OED.

...some of you guys really need to get a life - with all this c*ap you all seem to insist upon, it's not really worth asking anything here, so, once again, I guess I won't bother anymore, this site is totally ruined by all this kind of verbal trashing and constant flaming...

Perhaps the responses have something to do with how you formulated original question?

How can people tell you if you need this particular lens if guys don't know if you need ANY lens? Maybe you are tired of your vast collection of lenses, who knows?

In OP you didn't even bother to tell if you have a camera.
