The lens that wants to be used

  • Excerpt: I have been enjoying the use of zoom lenses on my Olympus OM-D EM-1, but now I have discovered the clean beauty of the prime lens. I have added the 75mm f1.8 to collection of the 17mm f1.8 and 45mm f1.8.lenses. There are gaps in this group that will be filled some day.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: The lens was described as used but it didn't show any signs of use. It looked like brand new, right out of the box. Terrific savings for an outstanding lens. This was definitely the way to go. I'll check here first next time I'm looking for more gear.

Outstanding lens

  • Excerpt: Almost everybody rates this 5 stars - me too. I won't repeat the good stuff, which appears everywhere. The only wish I have is that the focusing ring would be clutch-type like the Pro 12-40 and 40-150 to shift into MF. Not a biggie since I adopted a front button on the OMD-EM1.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction

High Performance

  • Excerpt: This is a special lens. I purchased it for the 150mm equivalent reach, and was influenced by the high marks published on a number of photo testing web-sites. I didn't want a larger lens because I want my u43 system to be small and light. Wow, was I surprised after using this lens a couple times.
  • Pros: Durable, Efficient, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Sharp, Strong Construction

NICE GLASS!

  • Excerpt: The quality of this Olympus 75mm 1.8 Lens is craftsmanship. The lens focus ring is buttery smooth and feels very solid. The front element screams a thing of beauty. The auto-focus is spot ON and accurate. The 150mm FOV in full frame equivalent is sharp corner to corner.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

There is no better 75mm lens available period, this is the ultimate portrait lens in m4/3

  • Summary: I have had most of the prime lens assortment from Olympus, and this is a shining example of why. The focus is fast to acquire in all lighting situations, not the fastest in my opinion but certainly predictable and without hesitation.

One of the sharpest lenses I have!

  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Heavy

Terrific lens...WOW

  • Excerpt: When reading the reviews for this lens, people were commenting on how sharp and crisp the images were defined. This is true. I would imagine that this and the 12-40mm 2.8 and the 40-150mm 2.8 are the crowns in the Olympus line of lenses.
