I love this lens, olympus has come up with a winner again.

ISO 200 17mm, F1.8, 1/50 pic was handheld lightning was halogen ceiling light with new white balance. some lightning was reflected from kitchen granite counter-top.

Nice pictures Brian, I like the light.

The 17mm f/1.8 is an excellent lens. I had the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 and after testing both, I sold the 20mm and kept the 17mm.

The Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 is sharper in the center, but you need to pixel peep to see it. That was it's only advantage over the 17mm. For all other aspects, the 17mm won the toss.
