Excerpt: I know it's expensive but, buy it. Try to find a deal, sell one of your kids or donate a kidney, get it. I have been using the 17mm 1.8 as my primary for the last two years.

Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Excerpt: This is my second lens for my Olympus OM-D E-M1 after the 75-300 mm Zoom. With a 35mm equivalent of 24 meters this works as a medium wide prime lens. I have gotten fantastic landscape shots with this lens with good color. This lens lets in plenty of light and works great for outdoor photography.
Summary: My favorite standard wide for m43. Very sharp, colors look great, no image distortion at corners, great build quality (lightweight, but sturdy). The sliding focus ring doesn't work great for video, seems to be a delay in the electronic focusing mechanism. Overall I love this lens and haven't found any better 12mm on mft.
