Excerpt: First off I have read a lot about how people complained about the size of this lens compared to other m4/3rd lens. Yes it is larger than other prime lens in the olympus line up, but for it being 75mm (150mm full frame) it is tiny. It is close in size to any canon or nikon 50mm 1.8 lens.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Short intro, the review not about me ! It's about this wonderful lens ! If your a short/medium telephoto shooter, you must get this lens, my first impression are the built quality, the feel, and performance!
Summary: Sometimes you only understand how valuable things are when they are gone. My 75 mm 1.8 got stolen when moved to a new place. I needed urgent replacement for my favorite portrait lens and bought it again.
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).
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
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.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Summary: I finally purchased this jewel of a lens and I can only second all the previous rave reviews. The lens is sharp wide open with a nice bokeh. The compact size and low weight makes it a prefect fit in my m4/3 lens collection which includes the 12, 17, 45 and 60 macro.
