Re: What a disappointing situation with the 17mm lens! Why?

Have you actually SHOT PICTURES with one of these lenses - especially the 17mm 1.8? It sounds like all you have done is research various review sites instead of actually trying out one of them.

I had the original Olympus 17mm and the Pana 20mm. I currently have the Olympus 17mm and the Pana 14mm. And while perhaps I am not a super critical as some others, I really like the results I get from both. Is the 17mm overpriced - not when you consider the aperture and the build quality along with what I consider very good IQ. Could it been a bit sharper - possibly. But not to call it "a disappointing situation" IMHO.
