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

That understanding may depend on more factors.

When 50mm is an easy distance for a full frame 35mm dslr we can still scale this down for m43. The distance from the rear of the lens to the sensor is considerably smaller in m43. The image circle to be covered is also considerably smaller.

If everything is roughly scaled down by a factor of 2 then a 25mm or perhaps a 30mm lens should be equally easy to make for m43 as a 50mm lens is for full frame. Right?

In any case a 17mm lens does not fall into that easy category unfortunately.
