Olympus 17mm f1.8 - What a disappointment
2

I got myself an Oly 17mm f1.8 for upcoming trip to East coast. I was quite happy to get another low light lens and then it happened.

Low Light performance is so very disappointing, just keeps hunting and has significant flare issues. I kept going back to my Pany 25mm for assistance. I guess this goes back and it's time to get a 12-40mm.
