Olympus 75mm f1.8 or Olympus 40-150 f2.8 PRO

Hi all,

I'm trying to decide between these two lenses. I already have the 12-100 f4 and 100-400 f5-6.3. I also have the MC-20. I also have a 45mm f1.2 for portraits.

I'm leaning towards the 75mm for the extra reach for portraits at 150mm equiv. and not sure if I need the overlap that I'd get with the 40-150, 12-100, and 100-400 combo. I am leaning towards the 40-150mm f2.8 for the consistent aperture and the slightly faster aperture with the 2x teleconverter (compared to the 100-400). It also seems more versatile with close focus distances, etc.

I mainly shoot wildlife, portraits, landscape, and travel. Does anyone have any experience with these two lenses? Given the lenses I already have, would it make sense to get the 40-150? Is one sharper than the other?

Thanks,
