This lens is insanely sharp, corner to corner, wide open. That is a pretty amazing thing to accomplish.
The bokeh is excellent. Color fringing in out of focus areas is well controlled (controlled, not absent).
Wide open, as one would expect, contrast is slightly lower, but image is still extremely sharp. Loss of contrast is minimal compared to most lenses in this class.
It does cost a fair bit. In my book well worth it.
Finally, to answer some of the typical criticisms:
"Why isn't it half the price like the 45/1.8" - The 45/1.8 is a very nice lens and a great value. The 75/1.8 is definitely higher quality. I've shot them side by side wide open. The 45/1.8 is going soft in the corners, the 75/1.8 is still sharp in the corners. They are two different lenses with different levels of optical quality and thus different prices.
"It is only F/1.8, expensive glass should be 1.4 or 1.2" - Well, this is meant for m43. It should be compact and lightweight. To me Olympus did this perfectly. It is an F/1.8 lens that is wickedly sharp all the way to F/1.8. If you compare to similar F/1.4 and F/1.2 lenses in other formats there the optical quality degrades wide open and yet the lens is much larger to allow for the wider maximum aperture. I prefer the Olympus approach - only go to F/1.8 to keep the size down but make the lens perfect all the way to F/1.8.
"I can adapt cheaper 85/1.8 lenses, this is too expensive" - I can say with confidence, there is absolutely no legacy 85mm lens in existence that sells for less than this lens that is as sharp at 1.8. You can get a lens that is cheaper and it will be noticeably softer at 1.8.Read more ›
This gives you the equivalent of a 150mm lens since the m4/3 cameras have a 2x crop factor effectively doubling the focal length of the lens. What makes this lens so great is the fact that it's extremely sharp from edge to edge even when wide open at the f/1.8 aperture. Yes, it gets even sharper if you stop it down to a more reasonable f/2.8 but most people who want this lens want to use that bright 1.8 setting. In terms of image quality, I would say this lens gives me similar results to the Canon EF II 85mm 1.2 L lens on a APS-C crop sensor DSLR when used at f/1.8 onward. The biggest difference is that the Olympus 75mm 1.8 doesn't cost as much as the Canon 85mm 1.2 and the Olympus lens focuses faster (particularly on the latest m4/3 cameras).
Not only that, but the Olympus 75mm is a surprisingly compact lens. It's only slightly bigger than my Nikon 50mm f/1.8 G lens for my Nikon DSLRs and smaller than my Nikon 85mm 1.8 G lens. This makes it one of the largest prime lenses available for micro four thirds cameras, but it's not huge by DSLR standards.
Getting back to image quality, there is a hint of chromatic aberration or "purple fringing" on high-contrast edges when you shoot wide open (or nearly wide open) but it's VERY minimal and only appears at maximum magnification.Read more ›
That was a wrong statement. Carrying a bulky D700 and the Makro ZF all day is absolutely of not many funs. Then I set my eyes on M4/3. I got the GF1 and GX1, but the noise even at low ISO had annoyed me a lot, and I even thought I shall never touch M4/3 again. And then the Olympus OM-D E-M5 was announced, which sheds a bit of light for this system. And then the Olympus 75mm was announced, which impulses me to grab an E-M5 just to hook up this lens.
There's no regret. I spent a whole afternoon shoot this little beauty wide open, under direct summer sun. When looking at the result on Aperture 3, "Wow" was what came through my mouth. In the following week as I played more with the 75mm, I found myself like this little beauty more and more.
It's not that of Zeiss steel tank, but the all aluminum construction makes it feel like a piece of fine art. Outstanding build in its price range compared to the much more expensive 35mm f/1.4G and such. It weighs a lot more than other M4/3 lenses, and more than twice of the exceptionally built Olympus 12mm F/2. Having said that, the plastic stock lens cap is a shame to put on, and it's not easy to take out as you can hardly grab your fingers on it. I strongly recommend to replace it with the metal cap LC-61, which perfectly matches this lens.
This lens focuses pretty fast and precisely and I seldom saw the E-M5 hunt in focus.Read more ›
