Looks like you need to stop down to F4 for very good quality.

Really? That's not how I read it at all.

check O75/1.8 @ 1.8 on the same website... that is what we can call very good quality

Call it what you want. "majority of the frame is very sharp" at f1.8 is good enough for me and has been plenty good the two months I have owned it.

Enjoy those charts all you want. I have both lenses and like them both very much.

I'm with Greg on this one, my copy of the 17 is great, even wide open, and the subject is always plenty sharp and the oof areas are amongst the best rendered I've come across from a m43s lens. Honestly prefer this one to all the alternatives mentioned by slrgear.
