The 75mm lens can focus as close as 0.84 metres, meaning you can shoot creative portraits.
The f/1.8 wide aperture of the lens and focal length of the lens means that backgrounds can be beautifully thrown out of focus.
The 75mm lens is equivalent to 150mm in 35mm terms, so you need to stand quite a distance from the subject if you wish to get a lot in.
Here you can see the quick drop off in focus, as the front of the hair is in focus, but the rear section is not.
Shot at f/8, the amount of detail captured by the lens and camera combination is great for headshots.
Again, here we can see how shallow depth of field effects can be captured with the f/1.8 lens.

What is a hands on review?
Hands on reviews' are a journalist's first impressions of a piece of kit based on spending some time with it. It may be just a few moments, or a few hours. The important thing is we have been able to play with it ourselves and can give you some sense of what it's like to use, even if it's only an embryonic view.
