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.

Olympus does update their lenses. And they are marked as "II" or "R".

The R stands for "Redesign" as the body is redesigned, optically same. Look like 40-150mm and R version.

And same thing with II but it can have different optics but same design or new design, ie 14-42mm has gone through that.
