are you using it with the E-M5, Andrew?I love mine! Been shooting my son's soccer team with it.
Other than the price, the focal length is my hesitation as well, Luke. Trying to figure out how I would use it outside of portraits, which I do, at most, a couple times a year for family. As a new photographer, though, I wonder if it would be fun to learn how to shoot a tele length....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...
I guess it depens on what you shoot at the zoo, but indoors it is a great portrait length.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.
+1 for some images from Bob and others who may have succumbed to peer pressure or GAS. I did see some great images from Joe and Ray so far.Let's see the pics from the 75mm folks!
