Re: Help please: 75/1.8 instead of 35-100?

Tough decision, both are excellent lenses but for different purposes.

The 35-100 has one big advantage to me, it is weather sealed which is a plus for outdoor shooting. It also has rather fast AF (tried it on a GH3 and on my E-M5 and liked it very much but my piggy bank is rather slim right now).

The 75/1.8 is my favourite mFT lens, i'lm constantly finding excuses why i have to use it instead of simply mounting the 45/1.8 or the 25/1.4. Spent a whole afternoon in the studio with my back pressed against the wall to be able to take group shots. Call me stupid but that lens is a gem. But versatile it is NOT.

I'd get both if i could. Not exactly helpful, i know ...
