Re: Old olympus 17/f1.8. New 25/f1.8

Honestly to say i already have both of them. Now I got 1 day to make a choice what I want to have.
Yesterday I was walking around and taking photos. With 25mm i can do few steps backwards and i make photo with same perspective what i can have with 17mm.

I can not decide what to keep. I'm newbie with prime lens and a both love it.
With 300% crop i see 25mm is better in micro contrast.

Don't look at photos like that. When do you really get to look at an image at 300% in real viewing distances? It should matter even less if you view images on-screen or print small.
