Olympus M.Zuiko 75mm 1.8 - black, boxed

I'm reducing my arsenal of lenses - not using 75mm enough to justify keeping. Actually it's been used only a few times since purchase.

It's a beautiful, immaculate piece of glass and I hope that someone else will make better use of it!

420 incl. RMSD

If interested, please PM.

A few unedited shots below. First two @f/3.5, 3rd @f/6.3.

Beautiful colours and bokeh, isn't it?

Tempted too. But cannot decide between this or the Panasonic 35-100mm f2.8

Re: Olympus M.Zuiko 75mm 1.8 - black, boxed

Interesting that a few 75mm f/1.8 lenses are now being offered on the forum. I have had mine for several months and it too has had very little use as the focal length is somewhat awkward. HOWEVER, in the past few weeks I've persevered and the results are stunning. Apparently, Saul Leiter used a 150mm (old money) lens and that's how he got the wonderful compression of depth in his street photos.

It's a fantastic lens and mine is going - nowhere. Highly recommended.

Re: Olympus M.Zuiko 75mm 1.8 - black, boxed

I recently sold my 45mm and 75mm and foolishly believed that the 40-150mm pro would replace it, this however is not the case, and as for my 12-40mm pro is rubbish, I might sell that and buy another 75mm and 25mm.

The 75mm is the best....

Interested to hear your view on the 12-40mm. Do you have a bad copy of it?
