Just got my 75mm lens
This lens seems very nice, well made, great focal length, focus seems quick, I can see this along with my 12mm being the perfect street combo kit.
Will post some images when I get a chance.

I love mine! Been shooting my son's soccer team with it.

I had to see what forum this was in to guess which 75mm lens you might be talking about. I have LOVED some shots I've seen from that lens. I have no doubts that the quality is amazing. The only nagging doubt I have is whether I can use such a long lens (with crop factor factored in) in any sort of normal way. It's too short for zoo visits, but it's a bit long to try to use ANYWHERE inside. I look forward to seeing your shots, Bob.

Look forward to reading your impressions, Bob, and seeing the images, of course!
are you using it with the E-M5, Andrew?

Even though Olympus does not provide a lens hood they do give you an easier to use lens cap when you use the hood with the hood

Where did you order from, Bob? I'm on the fence whether to get this lens but think I will come off the fence if I can find it in stock .

I guess it depens on what you shoot at the zoo, but indoors it is a great portrait length.

I've got a small house....sometimes the 45mm is too long in the house (!)

I find the focal length a bit odd, wish it was just a tad longer, like 90mm or 100mm. I've been using it outside for events and lanscapes. Good luck with your lens, it is a good shooter.
