Hard to choose

Simply pick the focal length that seems most logical for you, and go from there. I think 15-20mm is most versatile, so I'd pick one of the lenses in that group:

  • Panasonic-Leica 15mm f1.7 - not out on the market yet, but will ship in late May of this year, according to Adorama's listing;
  • Olympus 17mm f1.8 - my pick of the group so far, until we have some reviews of the PL 15/1.7;
  • Sigma 19mm f2.8 - a great budget choice, but don't buy it if you're not on a tight budget. The 17/1.8 offers 1⅓ advantage in maximum aperture, which does come in handy very often;
  • Panasonic 20mm f1.7 - used to be the best choice, but I think the 17/1.8 is better.
