Who exactly "misled" you? Get the Sigma 19mm or an Oly.

I'm not sure how you could be "misled" when the reviews of the new version of the lens agreed that it was basically nothing new, and the negative aspects of the lens have been written about for years on this forum? I sold mine a couple of years ago.

The lens was the first decent lens for m4/3 when it was a kit lens about five years ago, and many people only judged it on its sharpness (compared to their kit lenses, of course). A couple of years later everything had changed.

Get the Sigma 19mm, or the new Oly 17mm.
