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

I have the 14 and 20, happy with both. I think I would be with any of the lenses in that general range with the possible exception of the Olympus 17/2.8 and Sigma 19/2.8 (both too slow).

As for the Olympus 17/1.8, I read the review on Ming Thein's blog when it was released and it really seems like a fine lens too.

I read that review too, and also Robin Wong's, and I think every one that had been written. Suffice it to say that there are different standards and expectations in reviews. I would normally take note of the negative comments more than the praises, so as to err on the safe side. And also take note of the comments from reviewers who check more thoroughly more.
