Am just becoming familar with the 75 and discovering it's a very special lens. Not entirely sure why, as the focal length is not one I use often in zooms, but that length combined with the very fast aperture and the sharp, contrasty optics are really appealing. Despite the photos on line it's actually rather small, which I also appreciate.

It helps to have a top shutter speed of 1/8000 for daylight use.

Am sure the zoom is fine, but I'm holding out for the very large 40-150/2.8.

Love the 75, and that 40-150 better be stellar as we expect it will be

It's a dim light demon, especially with an OMD VF ...
