I make excuses to shoot with this lens
Despite not being my most used lens, this is certainly my favorite. I always make excuses to use it because of the absolutely gorgeous rendering the lens imparts on scenes. The color is perfect, the out of focus areas smooth, and the sharpness that of a razor's edge. Seriously, on any of the cameras with a 'hi-res' mode, the detail you can get out of this lens straight from f/1.8 is really astounding.

One of the best short tele primes I’ve used on any system!
Simply put, if you’re on the fence about this lens... buy it. I put this one off for a while because I already the excellent Oly 45 1.8. I knew this would be a bit of a specialty lens for things like chorus/theatre performances, occasional portraits, and maybe indoor sports at some point in the future. I’ve only had it a couple of weeks and I can say I love it. It just feels like such a quality lens and is not unlike the Oly PRO zooms in terms of being a solid feeling, metal, beautifully finished lens with a nice quality focus ring. Focusing is fast and accurate, like all Oly premium lenses I’ve used, and the sharpness and bokeh are wonderful. The closest lens I can compare it to is my Canon EF 85L II in terms of sharpness and subject separation (although it’s FOV is closer to the 135L that I’ve never used). That’s saying a lot, since the 85L II is one of my absolute favorite lenses of all time, and that certainly puts this Oly 75 in that same category. Those who say you can’t get shallow DOF and great subject separation on MFT cameras have obviously never shot with this lens. It can produce some beautiful images that compete with the best from any system. For this price it should have come with a hood, but that’s basically my only complaint. The lens itself is flawless in build and performance. I can’t wait to get out and shoot with it more.

Best prime lens you can own. Pro's include rendering, micro contrast, creamy bokeh, sharpness. Cons....there are none.
By far this is the best lens I have ever owned. Quality optics with beautiful rendering and micro contrast. A must have for any m4/3 user.

Super low light lens
This is probably my favorite lens. If you like tight portraits in low light, this is one to have. Also great for concerts, pets and even landscapes. It's a nice size, and looks/feels stunning. IQ never disappoints. It's hard to beat.

One the very best lenses in any format!
Been using this lens for six month now and it still impresses me every time with fast focus and unbelievable image quality and beautiful rich bokeh. This lens is at home in the studio or out in the field. The 75 focal length is great for portraits, commercial / advertising shoots and street photography. I also find a great landscape lens. As far as I am concerned this is one of the best lenses I have ever used in any format.
