Re: Olympus 17mm f1.2 vs Fujifilm x100v f2

Preference between 3:2 and 4:3 plays a role as well. Shooting 135 format I found myself routinely discarding a hunk of the x-axis via cropping, and am more comfortable in the 4:3 environment. Not everybody's eye agrees but for myself, I find APS-C offering no benefit versus m4/3 since the z-axis dimensions are so close.

That aside, I have a fixed-lens Sigma DP and compared to a fast prime that can jump from camera to camera into the future, if I had to decide between the 17 Pro and the DP I'd keep the lens, no question. The DP is a museum piece at this point.
