When the 17 1.8 was announced, a lot of people here were throwing the 20 1.7 under the bus, which I thought a bit premature. How many will still change from the 20 1.7 to the 17 1.8?

Best, Markus

In my experience Lenstip has been by far the best and most accurate review site.

I can agree with all their conclusions on various lenses I had.

Facts:

12mm is overpriced and not particularly great

20mm is very solid optically (although not as good as higher end Zuiko zooms), but has pretty bad AF and cold rendering.

7.5mm Samyang is really great and has best IQ among all fisheyes (although it's flare pattern is not very nice)

45mm is excellent value but very plasticky construction and very susceptible to flare and loss of contrast in back light situations.
