    Is it bad that I want all the portrait lenses?

    I think you can safely omit the most expensive one from your list. The 75 is a must, but if you already have the 45/1.8 which is small, sharp wide open, fast focuses, etc., then why would you at this point settle for a $1500 f1.2 when you could get a 0.95 for $800. And if you need AF, pop on the 45. :)

    Yes, it is evil of you! :evilsmile:

    I would love to have a collection of every m4/3 lens{well maybe not all the kit lenses} but I can't afford that. So I have to pick and choose as well as shop around for the best deals. Good luck with your ambitious goal.

    I do some portrait photography. It depends on the season--and where I'm living.

    This is just my irrational gear lust.

    Here's the rational version:

    I'm extremely happy with the 45mm f/1.8 and the 75mm f/1.8 that I have. And I enjoy my FD 85mm f/1.2L on both μ43 and FF. Will I get another short telephoto? Maybe...It certainly won't be in the budget for quite a while. Minimally, I'll be waiting for a price drop and a used market.
