    I don't find the 75mm the best portrait lens for close-up shots due to the slow down in focusing. The 45mm handles close-ups much faster (less glass to focus). Trying to photograph my kid running around at close range was a pain with the 75mm! At further distances the focusing is quick.

    I certainly love mine and the results are stunning, having said that, the 45mm is a great lens for H&S shots when space is too tight for 75mm.

    Just wish the 45mm was also metal and that the black version had been available last month when I got my kit.........still, the lenses are superb and the results make me happy so I am not really complaining!

    I just did this crop if you want to check it out. It's at 2.5, but wide open it's still very good.

    Shot with the Panasonic G3 & 75mm @ 2.5:
    P1000230.
