Full-size samples of the new Olympus 17 1.8 over at Lenstip.

It doesn't seem to perform as well at wide apertures like the Oly 45 1.8 or PL 25 1.4, but does sharpen up by f2.8 and f4. But even there, I'm not sure it's going to match the resolving power of some of the best m43 lenses like the 12 f2, 20 1.7, PL 25 1.4, 25 0.95, or 45 1.8. I hope I'm wrong, but I don't think I'm the first to be slightly underwhelmed by early samples from the 17 1.8.

Best to all, Markus

The last image of the chair, @f2.0, and the red postbox @1.8, what am I missing? looks excellent to me
