I am still waiting for mine in the mail - hopefully lens will be delivered in a few days!



I'm sure you'll enjoy it - I really like mine. I loved my 20mm but the 17mm is an all round better lens in my opinion. I love the feeling of it, it's very sharp, it (with my OM-D) can see in the dark better than I can, and no banding! My 20mm often showed clear banding at ISO1600.

I seem to remember there was a relatively high profile negative review of the 12mm around the time it was launched, but judging by this forum (and other subsequent reviews) that opinion is in the minority. I'm guessing the 17mm is experiencing the same thing, and as more folks try the lens then the consensus will change in the same way.
