Closest thing to the Olympus 17 Pro on L-Mount at the moment would be the Sigma 35mm f1.2 DG DN, it's gigantic though. There's also the new Sigma 35mm f1.4 DG DN which is smaller and cheaper. The Sigma 35mm f2 DG DN is also pretty nice and it's build and size reminds me of the Oly 17 Pro.

Sorry I can't really help you with the ultrawide.

i can endorse the 35f2. I use it on S5 in hi-rez mode, and its darn near perfect!

From another commenter,” Rashid, above, has the 14-24mm DN, I think.”

If so can you please offer your thoughts on the Sigma 14-24mm f2.8?

Thank You...

jeepit, the 14-24 dg dn is sublime.

My hunt for a wide angle lens on my S5 started with a decent samyang 12 fisheye, then I wasted $550 on a laowa 14f4. Next was an adapted sam14f2.8 (which i once had w/ my nikon d750) that now seemed soft. So i bit the bullet and spent almost $1500 on the 14-24. In spite of its heft,

i have never regretted the purchase for a second. It is brilliant; even wide open it is more than decent.

Great info I was hoping to read.  Do you have any experience with the Panny S 16-35mm? 
looking for a comparison between the two?

By comparison, i took out my panasonic 7-14 on G9 and shot a bunch of night pix. I was shocked how 'limp' they looked )-; That's only partially due to the FF sensor. (I can shoot my g9 at ultra-slow shutter speeds). the old 7-14, like the samyang 14, just don't cut it compared to this modern, cutting-edge optic.

Good luck!
