    The 75mm on the M8.2 does a nice job with close focus. I am glad I had it for this shot today! This bunny and siblings are in a nest built by their mother in my flowerpot on my front porch. This shot is not cropped or modified.

    Great shots.

    Little wonder this lens is perpetually out of stock!

    How do you all like this FL? I'm considering either a 75mm or 90mm as my next lens but leaning towards a 90mm since I'm used to that FL already. I shoot mostly landscape and some street, so the wider FOV on the 75mm has me curious.

    I use both focal lengths. The 75mm feels like a tighter 50mm, where as the 90mm feels like a long lens, which is how I end up up using each most of the time. For landscape, I'd go for the longer FL but 90mm is still pretty wide (for me).

    On a full frame camera, I would use 75mm more. On my M8.2 I use 50mm much more than 35mm, so I obviously lean toward the long lenses. 75 on the M8 is great for getting that little extra reach.
