Lenstip did reviews of both lenses, and the 14mm 2.5 is both considerably sharper than the 17mm and less expensive. Purple fringing can be controlled on Olympus cameras with a strong UV filter.

That being said, I agree that sharpness is not the only thing to consider. But it helps.

I am another looking forward to the PL 15mm.

Looks impressive, unfortunately not made in 46mm for some reason!

A quick Google will find many 46mm uv filters from a number of manufacturers.

Would you mind very much pointing me at one? Lots of Haze 1A's in 46mm but I can't find a 2A which was advised.

Is perhaps UV(C) the same thing?
