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

Privet, Sergey

I agree with your detailed analysis and like you am disappointed with Olympus's 17/1.8. Too expensive for too little. When I saw the samples and noticed some awful green/red CA - my instant conclusion was: "this is not to be".

I am spoiled by good lenses in the 4/3 system and thought it is not a nuclear science to design a a  very good to excellent 17/2. Alas, this niche is still void. I have the Panasonic 20/1.7 but will not defend it.

Really, it's a pity.
