However it has the same resolution across the frame and it is not worse wide open than at 5.6. I still prefer the signature of old lenses or even my 4/3 9-18. Like the 12/2 it looks to me...extenuated. More a portrait lens, than a reportage lens, which is a paradox for the focal.

But possibly it is what people who will never do a reportage want. A nice bokeh, for a price. Pretty build. They get what they deserve.

. . . I'm not seeing anything that would make me unhappy with continuing to use my 20/1.7. I'm not prone to upgrading lenses anyways since I only buy what I want in the first place even if it's 'too expensive'. Upgrading a camera body is a necessary evil these days but lenses are still a long term investment in the system IMO unless something really spectacular comes along.
