Re: Heated debate about 17mm/1.8

Hey by the way, I'm really not trying to talk up the Olly 17, I feel absolutely no need to do so, why would you? It's just a lens! the Panny's a great lens, just not any good for me is all. If you need fast focus or a useable zone focusing system it just doesn't do the job. Wish it did. The 17 is good for me, wish it was sharper, which it isn't, wish it was cheaper, which it isn't, but for me it does the job, which really is all that matters. I think for any kind of photography which is about narrative as opposed to the fine recording of detail it really rocks.

the way I take photos on the street you do need pretty quick focusing.

the example the OP has does look appreciably softer than mine, but as has been said, that could just be down to other factors.
