p.1 #1 · Happy With My 75/1.8 Oly


Took my Nikon 24-85AFS VR down to the local pro shop here in Seattle to trade it in on a black Oly 75/1.8 for use on my GH-2. It was mostly sitting around unused for the past year as it just did not get along with the D800. I have the excellent 12-35/2.8 Panasonic, but I needed something both longer and faster. Turns out the Oly rep was there and they were starting the October instant rebates a bit early - so I got $50 off. Not all that much for the Nikon, but at least it was a couple hundred $$ to put toward a lens that will keep it's value much better.

Came home and used it around the house a bit. I am more than pleased with it thus far. Just need to test it for centering tomorrow and hopefully it will pass that test and be a keeper.

Looks like I'm paring down the Nikon FX system a bit and expanding the m43 system.

Also handled the GX-7 today - oh man . . . . lucky for me the black version is not offered in the US yet . . .

Very nice. I'll have to give it a try sometime, I had the Oly 60 and found it that I didn't use it that much and thought that it was too long for my needs, but again it was the macro and maybe I was more thrown by the slower AF than the actual length. Impressive shots so far.

Anyone else feel free to show their images from this fine lens! I will share more as soon as I get a chance to use it more.
