I like mine.

When I don’t want to take the Leica or the Fuji X … then the GX7 or EM-5 with the 17mm f/1.8 is a very nice option.

Can’t say I’m a big fan of the 20mm f/1.7 at all; it’s technically competent but has a very sterile and uninteresting rendering.

One might also say clean or pure. I love that. I want my photos to have character but I don't want my lenses to add it.

It was the second lens I got for M43 (after the PL 25mm f/1.4) and is one of only three lenses in my entire collection for which there are NO images hanging on my walls.

The other two are the 14-42 and 45-175mm X/PZ lenses.
