So the new Zuiko is pretty good. I noticed it has the harsh microcontrast of its telephoto siblings. I like the 'clinical' look, but I already get that with the 45mm Zuiko.

My day-to-day kit comprises the 17mm 1.8 Zuiko and the 45mm Zuiko. But the Leica gives a rather different rendering, which I really appreciate having. I wouldn't part with it for the advantages that the Zuiko gives... considering that all in all, it's still a slower lens.

If the price bothers you, buy used. I got mine for about $450 in near-mint condition.
