I own the 7-14 and 12/2 and had the 9-18 before. All three lenses may create the usual lens flare you'd xpect from a uwa/wa lens. On Oly cameras (not only the E-M5) the flare itself sometimes (not always) has a purple cast and some users also showed images where you cannot see a real flare but a kind of ugly purple blotch in the image. I have experienced the purple flare (no problem for me if i want lens flare in the image as an extra effect) but never had the purple blotch. But you'll have to try for yourself.

My 17/1.8 is ordered, there is one bad review (lenstip) but otherwise i liked what i saw. The images seem to have a certain character, not as razor sharp as the 70/1.8 or the 60/2.8 but sharp enough to look good.

I agree

the review on steve huff of the 17mm f1.8 is interesting. The pictures look lovely
