I understand your dilemma. The 75mm is a jewel of a lens, and I would really like to own it. However, for me the decision was a 'no brainer' -- I need the versatility of a fast zoom. So I opted for the Pany 35-100mm.

I must say that I am glad I did, as it is an outstandingly sharp lens that focuses very fast and accurately. As the other poster mentioned, if I absolutely need the speed and more shallow DOF I can generally fall back on my 45mm.

To me the answer to your question lies in the answer to the main question -- do you need the flexibility of a zoom, if not, the 75mm would not disappoint you.

God Bless,
