    Very small, has f2 aperture, very high quality lens and it's dirt cheap!
    Not IF, but it's not a big problem

    I can't believe this lens:
    It's really small, dirt cheap, has a very good construction, and it makes impressive images!!

    Optically I think it's better than the Oly 17mm f1.8, and it's price is just less than the quarter of it! And on top of it it's even smaller!

    If it had internal focus, would be even better, but I still think this lens is perfect!

  • Olympus 17mm f/1.8 M.Zuiko Digital

    Absolutely beautiful and sturdy construction, 34mm FOV with f1.8
    Lenshood not included and it's pricey

    This lens is a real gem:
    - Lens construction is first class with it's full metal body. You have to see it in real to really appreciate it.
    - 34 mm FOV with f1.8 is the best all-around performer I can imagine for the micro 4/3. I don't need anything else, except the 45mm f1.8 which is a stellar portrait lens.

    It's image quality is not on par with the PanaLeica 25mm f1.4, but it's build quality and FOV really makes up for it.

    I'm going to use this lens for many-many years.
