Re: How about a 17mm f/4 and be there?

The 15mm BCL works just fine for "f/8 and be there".

Adding bells and whistles to a simple lens just increases the cost, as it approaches a "pancake lens".

I have the 15mm BCL, but find it a bit dim for many situations.

The BCL introduced the idea of slow, but small and cheap. It would be nice to see that concept extended, instead of always striving for fast, big and horribly expensive.
