Didn't realize there was a debate

For  the 17mm 1.8 is my main lens on the EPL5 and its purpose in life, street and all around shooting

It replaced my trusted 20mm and I much prefer it to the latter

It's sharp, has fast AF, is built like an expensive lens, and looks exquisite

Only nitpick I see is I wish it's a bit flatter like the 17mm f2.8

As it is , it looks a bit large on the EPL5 but fits the EP3 much better

I wouldn't worry much about any debate about the lens if your goal is to have an excellent all around lens on your MFT camera

Cheers
