Outstanding work, Carl! This is my favorite lens too! FWIW, I think this is a much better lens than my old Canon 85/1.2L Mk II. With the Canon it was a hit-and-miss as you have back-focussing and front-focussing issues to deal with. With the 75/1.8 it nails focus exactly where you want it ... every time.

OMD with 75 1.8.....LOVE this lens!!



Bobby,

Thanks - agree 100% Having come from a Canon setup and since moving to the OMD, I don't think I've ever had a sharper lens, corner-to-corner, than the 75 f/1.8. It's my favorite in my bag.

Very nice Julian! If you can repeat this shot maybe you can sell the concept/idea to Starbucks!

What I'd thought, hope you did'nt mind asking.
I've now seen a few from you with this lens, looks very capable.

Given the EP-5 has the same sensor, same great 5 axis IBIS etc, is this thread going to be for images from that camera as well or would a new thread be made ? (given I don't think anyone could tell them apart I'd vote for making this OM-D/EP5)

I'll have a silver EP5 kit in hand via FedEx tomorrow. Been shooting the RX1 and XE-1 lately but will be fun to get that great 5 axis IBIS again and the touch LCD. Really opens up some fun and creative shooting options you can't really do with other cameras.

Hey...you wouldn't want to let me use that brand new E-P5 for a week before you use it, would you...you know, for review's sake.

I agree. The E-PM2 onwards share the same sensor as the OM-D ... or better, as in the case of the E-P5.

How about if I change the title of the thread to OM-D/PEN Images?

My vote is Olympus Camera Thread. I look forward to what they offer next year...

Yes heard of it but never wondered into it.

Seems a good idea to have an Olympus thread, I admit I do enjoy specific camera threads , as they make an easy reference blog if you wish to research images and the such. It is the sensor which I for one use most as a reference on what to look at, now it would appear there are going to be a few Olympus cameras using this same sensor.


On the beach today and picked some Samphire. delicious raw or steamed with a good dressing.

Rock Samphire.

I rather enjoy pulling a new camera out of the box myself right after FedEx/UPS drops it off lol, but if for some reason these things are totally backordered everywhere for a while like a Ricoh GR, I'd probably be willing to let you borrow it so you could do a timely review.

I think the overall demand is going to be less, so I wouldn't expect these to be as tough to come by as the OM-D initially was.

I went through H&B Digital which has never failed to get me the newest Olympus stuff right when its released. They had the EP3, the OM-D and now the EP5, all at normal pricing (Saw one for $1699 on Amazon from some seller who wanted to back a buck). They used to be an Olympus Distributor and then switched over to a retail store so they must still have pretty good connections with Olympus

Took my new 35-100mm out the other day. Turns out half the photos were blurry (reason here). Here are a few that weren't:

Another winner from the 75/1.8! The bokeh/blur quality is just beautiful.

String very nice image and good use of the 75mm open.I think I saw these elsewhere and left a positive comment at the time? liked them then and again now, if it is the same pic it does show better here. looking forward to more.

Dare I say it ... the 75/1.8 lens has a bit of the Zeiss and Voigtlander quality ... good micro-contrast and color, and its almost 3D-like.

Maybe we should start a new image thread for this lens exclusively. It will encourage us to shoot more with this lens and motivate us to be more creative.

I dont need to be encouraged to use the 75mm, I force myself to take it off, it is my first too lens and the one that is always attached in the bag.
A 75mm thread would be a good idea, or maybe a Olympus prime thread?
