Hello all

I've yet to see a 17mm lens in the flesh but all the ones I've seen on the internet (ebay) etc are white.

Do they come only white or can I get a black one?

Only in silver

That's all they make. No black 17mm for now. I would also like to have one, since my PL1 (still no arrived) is black.

try finding a narrow rubberized focus ring i use one on my 17 and it makes mf more sure and quick to feel and the touch of black makes it look better aesthetically a touch of water based glue and some careful positioning and it looks like it was made that way

it also makes the lens seem more old school , which on the ep1 is perfect

Thanks for the replies. I'll stop my search for the black lens to match my black camera.

Any thoughts as to why they don't make them black?

Compare the 17mm to the kit 14-42mm

I was just wondering is the 17mm sharper than the 14-42mm or is it's advantage that it is slightly faster?

Any photo comparisons available? :confused:

I find the 17 to be slightly better than the 14-42 but not as sharp as the 14-45.
Regardless, it's great with the finder. Without the finder,
it's a very small package.
