    Hi all I already have the 90 I was wondering if there was enough difference in FL to also have the 75 or should I wait for a 65. I can get the 75 for a pretty good deal seems like the later one. Black barrel in copal shutter. Thanks for any feedback

    I've had all three, and I think they're pretty different focal lengths. I use the 90 more than 75, and 75 more than 65.

    For interiors I would prefer the 75, even got a 58XL to it. So yes, the 75 will be a valued addition.

    Any discussion is really pretty pointless without knowing the application. Consult the tables giving the angle of view for each of the focal lengths. Then do a little geometry to figure if that angle of view will accommodate what you want to photograph. There's your answer.

    I use all three as well. They are all great tools.
