    As usual, good samples and insightful comments in his review.

    "No doubt street photographers will find it extremely handy to get closer to or isolate their subjects, because its relatively small and unintimidating physical size is out of proportion to its magnification."

    I had not paid attention the the filter size of the 75mm before, it is a 58mm, just like the Panasonic 12-35. This looks to be very similar in size to the Panasonic. On an OM-D the 12-35 handles fantastically, particularly with the HLD-6 grip.

    Looking at specs, the Panasonic is 68mm dia by 74mm length. The Olympus 75mm is 64mm dia by 69mm length. Wow, that is compact for such a fast medium telephoto lens.

    Nice to see that several lenses will use the 58mm filter size. I have a bunch with the 46mm size and now will have several at 58mm.

    My second mu43 lens (40-150mm) has a filter size of 58mm, so I bought my circular polarizer & ND filter at that size & bought step-up rings for the rest... works out great.
