Any experiences on Oly 17 1.8?
Jan 14, 2014

Hi all!

Just wanted to know if anyone here is using the Oly's 35mm equailent prime? I'm taking a ten day trip soon to Japan, and decided that the SLR will stay at home, since I will be roaming the streets from dusk to dawn.

I was thinking of bringing OMD and either 45 or 75 for portraits, which will be the main purpose of shooting. Aside from drinking Sake of course.

But I also need something wider. And either Panaleica 25 or Oly 17 are on the table. I'm mostly interested in wide open performancce, people tell me the panaleica is awesome. How about Oly? Any good? Got something to share?

I am mostly worried about the dof, is there any separation going on with that lens? I don't need a lot of it, but it would be nice to have a little bit.
