That's good to hear ... as I am in agreement with you, totally. I have said before that the 75/1.8 is better than the Canon 85/1.2L II which I used to love, but it suffers from front and back focussing issues which prevented me from using it wide open for portraits and head shots, so what good is that over the inexpensive 85/1.8 version? The 75 is sharp wide open, and bokeh or blur quality is amazing and every bit as good as the 135L. There is certainly a lot of room for improvement on the OM-D body/sensor and I can't wait to see how much better it will be over the E-P5 which is already better than the E-M5. And I am looking forward to some new lenses from Olympus, to Panasonic's 42.5/1.2 and 150/2.8 lenses, and the new Schneider lenses. Good times ahead!
Thanks! I came from a full frame Canon system (5D2 and host of lenses) and sold that off in favor of the OM-D. Since working with it and a few lenses, I have not looked back and am happy with that decision. The 60 macro and 75 f/1.8 are two of my best lenses with the 75 rivaling anything I've ever owned in the Canon lens system. The images, straight out of camera (I shoot in raw mode only), are amazing.
There are (obviously) weak points about the OM-D system (well documented elsewhere) but not show-stoppers for what I shoot -...Show more →
