Summary: This lens is an absolute beast. The bokeh is buttery smooth, the colors pop, and f1.8 aperture makes it easy to shoot in all conditions. Only thing to keep in mind is the shortest focal distance is a little long - would be nice to use this lens to photograph just the eyes but alas that is too close.
Excerpt: If you want a solid prime lens for portraits and other uses, this 75mm works great. Sharp. I also use as prime Oly 12mm, 25mm and 45mm-- like them all-- but wanted the extra flexibility of 75mm (150mm equivalent to DSLR).
Excerpt: This is an incredibly sharp, fast, well built lens that produces great color and contrast. The only down-side to this lens is that if you want a lens hood you have to purchase one separately. I also had to buy a separate hood for my 45mm.
Summary: This lens is amazing. Although large for an m43 prime, it's still astonishingly compact for a 150mm equivalent lens. Compare it to a full frame long prime and it's no contest. On top of that, it's blisteringly sharp starting from f/1.8, and is actually one of my fastest focusing lenses.
Summary: This lens is, by far, the most impressive lens in my arsenal! Just looking at it, with it's massive front element, you can see the potential of light gathering. It's aluminum housing and it's noticeable weight give it a solid, quality feel, and he focus ring in butter smooth Though this lens makes...
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.
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.
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.
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.
