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

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.

impossible, lenstip said.. uhmmm
