The Fuji X100s?

I haven't tried the 17mm f1.8 yet, and will probably buy the E-M1 with 12-40mm f2.8 next, since I bought the X100 before a decent 35mm EFL option was available for m4/3rds.

If you're looking for the best possible option right now for that focal length, I honestly don't think you could beat the X100s for ergonomics, features and image quality.

It's nice to have choice!

Cheap, fast, great IQ. Now let's just hope for a better body from Canon. Whatever you do, you don't need to take the snorty attitude some of these folks are throwing at you.

Thanks, but I am not so desperate yet to go Canon. I think there is still hope for a good 17mm in M43. I am going Olympus will take note of this unsatisfactory situation. Or Tamron, Sigma? With the E-M1, GX7, E-M5, GH3, E-P5, and soon another OM-D, surely these high end cameras deserve something better than existing lenses with this FL.
