Re:Oly 75mm a WASTE ?!?

to a lot of people a 75mm lens (150mm FOV) Is a waste of bag space and would get far more use from the Panny 20mm or a telephoto zoom

I love, love, love taking portraits. For anyone who loves taking portraits, the 75 is definitely not a waste. I had the Oly 45mm 1.8 before and the 75mm is fully superior in every possible way.

Lots of people seem to think that the 150mm equivalent FL is too long but it really isn't at all. In super-cramped spaces maybe - but otherwise workable. Yes, the lens should always be paired with something shorter (like my Oly 17mm 1.8) but the 75 is a truly fab lens for portraits or when a bit of extra reach is needed.

Perhaps one thing that doesn't get mentioned enough, too: the all-metal build quality !! Crushes the Oly 45 in that regard as well ...
