Hi Marcelo,

The results certainly are impressive. But, I've a question;
I wonder if the AF would be faster on an EM-1?

The OMD-EM1 was designed, not only to use the newer M43 lens but also to accommodate those that want to continue to use their 43 lenses.
Thus, the question

Thank you Zig,

I think I have no answer for that question, I used only one time a EM-1 with a 12-40mm f2.8 and the AF was very fast, I assume that with the reviews and the AF capabilities of the EM-1 the 75mm 1.8 provably is faster than the OMD-E5... can somebody with both cameras confirm it please?

The combination of the OMD-E5 and 75mm 1.8 is fantastic for this kind of environments. Sharp pictures, beautiful defocus and the fast aperture is helpful shooting in very low light conditions.

I notice some lens flare in some situations when you have a light source in front of the lens but it is not always, I need to find the way to avoid this issue.

Great shots Marcelo.

I've tried carrying mine as the tele option to the 12-40 and with a 12/17/45/75 prime setup and have always found limited opportunities to use it. Either too tight compared to the 45mm f1.8 or not long enough. It's pretty obvious for this line of shooting it's fantastic.

A very nice 2nd set of images from the 75mm Marcelo, number 3 is the pick of this bunch for me, I wonder how many times models get a poke in the eye from those brushes!

Thank you Greg,

It is a very long focal length, for this kind of scenarios is perfect but I am curious to se what I can do with it for street photography.

LOL, I don't think that is happening very often. There is a crew of profesional make up artist that really do a fantastic work with the models.

Thank you for the kind words John.
