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.

you feel that way??? Hmmmm do you believe Canon's 135L, one of Canon's most popular lenses ever is also a specialist lens?  Just wondering

Actually, yes.  135L is a niche lens.  Personally I love it, but I consider it much more specialist than, say, an 85mm or 50mm.
