Re: Oly 75mm or...

It's an awesome lens. The images I have captured with it are really, really sharp and the 75mm FL with the F1.8 speed can create some really narrow depth of focus.

The issue I have with the lens is, the times I do carry it the number of times it gets used are few and far between. For me, it's too short to carry as the only tele option to the 12-40, so most of the time I'm using the 12-40 combined with either the 35-100 f2.8 Panasonic for the much better versatility, the 50-200mm f2.8-3.5 Zuiko for speed and reach or the 75-300mm M. Zuiko if I want reach and lighter weight to haul around compared to the 50-200.

If I were in a position of not being able to buy something else without first selling something I already had, the 75 would have probably been gone some time ago.
