Re: Olympus 17mm f1.8?

I know the OP only mentioned the PL 25 f1.4 and the Panny 20 f1.7, but has no one any comment on the new Oly 17 f1.7 (pretty please with smile)?

All three are unstabilised on a Panny body, and are suited to high ISO work; their differences are in IQ and field of view.  (On my OM-D all three are stabilised, and that makes a huge difference IMHO.  I couldn't get the low-light snaps I expected from the 25 f1.4 on the G2 or G3 or GH2, but kept it for higher shutter speeds, it was good, and now its never off my OM-D. I simply sold the 20 f1.7 a few weeks after buying it, being disappointed with its IQ at under any circumstances.  Folks tell me I must have had a poor copy...)
