Re: Olympus 17mm f1.2, Holy Hell

I have both the 17mm f1.8 and the 17mm f1.2. I used the 1.8 for years and I liked it a lot. It's small, I thought it was sharp, and it perfectly fit the M4:3 ethos. I bought the 1.2 two weeks ago, when it went on sale (again). What a great lens. Using it for what I do (photojournalism) is amazing. It is significantly better, especially wide open, and it renders out of focus areas better than the 1.8 does. It was like going from my Canon EOS 28mm f1.8 to the 24mm f1.4 L (back when I used Canon). Similar but much, much better.
