Olympus 17mm f1.8 vs f2.8
Feb 1, 2013

I am a new Olympus OM-D owner and currently have the 12-50 Kit Lens and the 40-150mm Telephoto Lens.

I am looking to purchase my first Prime Lens and would like to stay with an Olympus Lens.

I would like to get a 17mm (35mm equivalent). I would be using it for indoor family photos, street photos and perhaps the odd Portrait.

My question is the f1.8 worth the additional money over the 2.8 given my stated uses?

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thank You
