Wonderful lens

Pen fan, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I struggled for months on what lens to get - this or the Panasonic 35-100. I know people love this lens but I really wanted something with more reach. I keep hoping Panasonic or Olympus will announce a longer prime telephoto - is a 100mm f2 too much to ask? I couldn't resist the great reviews anymore and bought the 75mm. I'm very happy I did. For me, the magic quality of this lens is that it just seems to capture more detail. I love what it's doing for my E-P3.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction

Great Quality

  • Excerpt: I bought this to go with my Olympus E-M5. Love the bokeh, sharpness, and colors I get from this lens. Auto-focus has been fast, and accurate for me so far. It fills in a nice mid-range telephoto length in my kit. My only issue, if you can call it that, is that I run into my max shutter speed on the E-M5 (1/4000) pretty easily in any normal light. Easily fixed by adding an ND filter. Very happy with the lens, if I do my part.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Great Mid-range Telephoto, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Sharp images
  • Cons: Awkward focal length

A sharp, fast prime lens

  • Excerpt: So far I have been using the lens for flower and garden photography where the relatively long focal length and large aperture create a short depth of field to separate a flower from the background. The lens is perfectly sharp with a soft clean bokeh. The raw files show no distortion, vignetting, or color aberration. The large aperture also permits use of a polarizer to control reflections, even on cloudy days.
  • Pros: Good Bokeh, Lightweight, Very sharp

Now I Have Two Favorite Lenses!

  • Excerpt: I recently bought this lens with an EM-1 and saved a couple hundred bucks. My other favorite lens is the 50mm f2 and these two compliment each other completely. First thing on the bill with new camera and lens was a wedding in Ohio and this lens with the EM-1 would do issolation shots from the second row or crops from the back row due to its excellent sharpness and the sensor of the EM-1. No need for a zoom.
  • Pros: All The Gushy Stuff
  • Cons: NONE

Excellent optics

  • Excerpt: I use this for any shots where I need subject isolation, such as portraits.<br />This lens has a nice build, is reasonably compact and light. But the best thing is the optical quality right from f1.8 across the frame.<br />The only thing that is not quite up to that standard is the AF speed.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Optical quality, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Slow Focus

Beautiful lens

  • Excerpt: Tack sharp with instant auto-focus on my GX7. Focus fall off at open stops is gorgeous. Plus, it looks good. Only negative is no included sunshade. I suggest the Hoya 58mm rubber shade. At less than a third the price, it keeps the light off the glass just as well as the Olympus shade.
