| p.1 #12 · How sharp is the Oly 75mm f/1.8 Really? |
The popcorn is warming up in the micro...
The photo of the girl that admiring light put up doesn't do it for you? Wow... I thought the cat photos were pretty sharp too...
The Oly is $899.
The OM-D body only is around $949.
An 85L new is around $2,200 - no offense, but no one's buying the FD 85L anymore, and even if they do its manual focus on canon's digital bodies with an adapter... That's not to say it isn't great BTW...
Zeiss 85 f/1.4 (Manual focus) is $1,283 on B&H
A Used D700 is what? $1,200?
$2,400 for a Nikon with the Zeiss or $1,848 for the OM-D and the 75... Taking weight into consideration, I'm going with the OM-D....
Here is the aforementioned SLR Gear review, note the first line;
"The Olympus 75mm ƒ/1.8 is one of the sharpest lenses we've ever tested. It is tack-sharp even wide open at ƒ/1.8, gets a little sharper through to ƒ/8, and stays sharp even stopped down to ƒ/16."
