I bought a new Oly 17mm f/1.8 & find I am really disappointed with it's optical performance when compared with the Oly 12-40 f/2.8 at 17mm. Does Olympus ever update their lenses to improve them? NOT interested in the heavy Oly 17mm f/1.2 lens due to size & weight.

What disappoints you about it? plenty of people really like it, I have my own theory on this but I'm interested to hear your opinion.

I never expected Oly 17/1.8 to be the sharpest lens out there. And it isn't.

But it boasts a great build quality, a fantastic usability also in manual mode and it has the FOV that really fits my desires.
