Who can argue
The quality of the lens has been well documented. Yes the cheapskates should provide a hood at the very least but there are third party alternatives.
I like the lens and the quality of the shots it takes. This particular length is a bit of a tweeter for me so I find I am not using
It as much as I thought I would. I will be trying to find some new perspectives to take advantage of this lens. I would really like to see something like a 75mm-150mm f2. While it wouldn't be cheap I think I personally would use it more. I have been thinking about the pant 35-100 because that is a range I do use but based on the reviews I am waiting to see if olympus comes up with something in that focal range.
Great little lens but think about your shooting style.

The perfect portrait lens
Some would say a true cult lens. I certainly agree that the M.75mmF1.8 is an exception on its own. Despite its high price point, it worth every penny of it.
The lens by itself is beautifully design and crafted with the classic metal feeling and the very smooth manual focus damping. It is an heavy lens by M4/3 standards especially compared to the « polymer » products.
The results are outstanding. I meanly use this M.75mm F1.8 as a portrait (face) lens. I like the creamy effect of the out-focused area surrounding the subject.
You have to pay attention to the weight of the lens by holding it the classical way using your left arm as a palm receptor. This position allow you to manually correct the focus with the OM-D E-M5 S-AF/MF auto-focus mode.
I am not really fond of the big lens hood proposed except maybe with some strong punctual front light situations.
My only recommendation is to protect the front optical element of the lens with a first class neutral filter.
Yes the M.75mm F1.8 is a beauty by itself but it is also a compentent tool that generate outstanding results.

This is a must have lens for the micro four thirds system if you can afford it. The lens is fast to focus, quiet, solid, and is incredibly sharp at all apertures. It opens up some creative options with its telephoto focal length and fast aperture. I use it for detail shots when outdoors, kids playing and love it as a portrait lens.
