Re: 17mm f/2.8 Zuiko vs 19mm f/2.8 Sigma

Thanks, that's what I thought. $170 ebay price of 14mm is tempting but for me the kit lens quality at 14mm is quite acceptable. I find E-PL1 body too thick to be pocketable even with thinnest lenses, so I would mabye buy 14mm only if it performs wide open far better than kit lens, so I could go lower ISO with E-PL1. With newer bodies though I wouldn't need this either.

Faster aperture is always nice to have in your pocket, but I only use it on these > lenses when I need it for hand held or moving subjects in lower light.
