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

The responses so far inevitably reflect the inherent biases of the users of the various lenses.

The supporters of the 35-100 say what matters is flexibility and on this basis the 35-100 wins out. Yes the 75 is faster but you can easily bump up ISO.

But when it comes to people who prefer the 75, what you generally find is that what they really prefer about the lens is the shallow DOF and bokeh they get @1.8 when shot wide open. See all Fred K's shots as an example.

Seems to me that the Op is reasonably happy enough that he has got versatility over the range covered by his 40-150 and is really looking to add the 'qualities' of the 'fast prime'.
