Just got the 12mm. Also ordered the 17mm. 1.8. Do yo guys think 17 and 12mm are too close to have both, considering the price?. Should i have ordered the Leica Pana 25? Also I  have the 45, 75, 60macro and the kit lens.

I own both the 12/2.0 and the 17/1.8.

Like some of the other posters here, I think the lenses are quite different. The 12/2.0 is better for landscapes and building interiors. The 17/1.8 is better as a walkaround lens and for street photography.

I've only had the 17/1.8 for a few weeks but I like it a lot. I do tend to get better pictures with the 12/2.0, but that says more about me than it does about the respective qualities of the two lenses.
