Re: Thinking about the Zuiko 17mm f/1.8

My 12-40 f2.8 Pro is my "go to" lens for the vast majority of my shooting. I purchased the 17mm f1.8 to give me a smaller profile on my E-M5 Mark ll for going out to restaurants, parties, etc. It is also pretty good for well lit nighttime street scenes.

That being said I agree with everyone that the 12-40 f2.8 Pro has better IQ and in addition the weatherproofing on this lens if you are outdoors is an important factor to take into consideration.
