Reviews -
No doubt this lens has been creating waves since it was first launched, and Agetan did a wonderful portrait review here - Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 75mm f1.8 ED MSC - Portrait Application, I though it would be good to have another look at this lens, used for different purposes.

M.Zuiko Digital ED 75mm f1.8

Described, admittedly humble, by their corporate literature ... A high-grade fast aperture portrait lens featuring metallic construction and a light weight of just 305 gsm. With a 35mm equivalent focal length of 150mm, it is suitable for studio portraits, theatre stage and indoor sports photography.

A large bright 50mm front lens element compliments a sophisticated optical design of 10 individual lens elements in 9 groups, including a total of 3 ED lenses and 2 HR lenses. Clear and sharp image quality starts from its largest f1.8 aperture, and a 9 blade aperture unit produces beautiful circular defocusing.

MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) AF drive assures fast and nearly silent focusing. Lens elements feature Olympus? ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating technology. Close focusing down to 0.84 meter is possible. A metal lens hood and lens cap are available as optional accessories.
