Bob, I like these a lot. I was a bit worried that no one else had bought one because a thread I posted on it a week or two back received no responses.

Funny, that.  I didn't look at your topic because this lens is too massive and expensive for 35mm on µ4/3.    I forgot about the topic when I shot the nor'easter last week with the 20/1.7 and came to the realization (with a chorus of angels signing to punctuate the recognition)  this FOV was THE FOV for me.

Of these "Circle Line" and "Fish Market" are my favourites, the composition is Hopperesque.

I'm glad to hear you are enjoying the 17.5mm, it really is a special lens with a bit of magic wide open and stopped down (and of course it's relatively huge and heavy).

It does people as well as any 35 equivalent can as well (shot of my brother with the 17.5):

Thanks for posting these - you've made me want to take some landscapes and architecture with mine.

Love this photo, there's a lot of character being conveyed (makes me feel like I know your brother).   I need to get over myself and look to pointing the lens at strangers on the street more often.
