These shots also show that "corner sharpness" almost never matters because in a real scene because lack of DoF takes over anyway (if you're shooting flat art wide open then something is wrong... and the 17 wouldn't be the right lens to do this with anyway).

Exactly right. I found the 17mm did a handy job on close-up as well. I'm hoping for a new 17mm with one more stop (e.g. f2) and slightly less bulk -- perhaps about the size of the Panny 14. Then might move back to the 17 from the 14.

Cheers, geoff
