It was a rainy day and I was bored and needed cafine. So I went to the Hob Knobb Coffee Shop with my camera gear. While waiting for my coffee I shot a series of photos just to see how in a real life situation how the 17/1.8 photos compair with my 12/2.0 and 25/1.4. The photos are all hand-held with basically in-store ligting since it was rainy and the curtains were closed. For three scenes the photos were taken with the lens wide open and then again at 2.0 since this is the common widest f-stop. I only posted the f2.0 shots here to save a little bad width. The f1.8 or f1.4 shots are in my Flickr gallery if interested in looking at them. The exif data should be with the photo.

It was a pleasant way of spending a few minutes on a rainy day and I am still trying to get a handle on how I like the new 17/1.8. I have had it for a month now and I do like the lens but I really love the Panasonic 25/1.4 and the Oly 75/1.8. Still the 17/1.8 is good and it is a favorite focal length for me and should become a real workhorse lens for me.

I got some more photos from this coffee shop from this day and another day last far when the 25/1.4 was my new lens and I took photos there on my home with the 25/1.4. If interested they are on my Flickr set at:

Many thanks for looking. Comments are always welcome.


Nice work, Dave. Mine just arrived two days ago. I've been pleased so far, but I'm still wondering if I should have gone with the PL 25mm instead. I love the build of the 35mm, but I'm more used to the 50mm FL.
