Default 75 f1.8 first shots

So I bought this lens on a whim, since it was on sale for 560 refurbished from GetOlympus.com. I'm not sure if I'm thrilled with it yet. I want to do some comparisons, but it seems like my Panasonic 25mm focuses a lot faster, which was surprising sine they say this lens is good for indoor sports photography.

Anyway, here are a few first shots with the lens. I'm going to try to work with some better lighting and see if I can get sharper results.

It's a very specialized lens and can be a hard one to use at times because it's such a long, odd focal length. I get along best with it when using a lens that'll give me a good indication of when 75mm will work, like when I'm shooting with the 12-40mm f2.8 and when viewing at 40mm it looks like I could use about a 50% crop of the frame to get what I want, which is just about right for the 75.

The eyes on the cat picture . . . they look fantastic. Did you use any kind of special processing?

The results look pretty good. What camera body is it on?

I have to say, the first photo is gourd-geous.

I don't remember if I processed this. If I did, it is just some WB, exposure and contrast in the raw file. He is very hard to shoot though given his color.

Love the colors in the last one and the cat's eyes really are intriguing.

I agree with that. All the photos are nice but the cat's eyes really jump off the page.
