    The images are from raw with some processing in LR4. I don't shoot alot of jpeg. Thanks for the comments. I like the lens, it's a little soft at the corners wide open but very useable. The raw files sharpen nicely. I haven't shot with the Pany 20 but I own and like the Sigma 19. However, I will be using the 17 from now on. Build quality is fantastic. I encourage others who are considering a wide prime to give this one a try.

    Dan can you do me a favour?
    I'd like to see two photos of the same subject about ten feet away (vaguely) with a busy background, wide-open from both your new 17mm and your Sigma, and maybe an F2.8 from your 17mm too...
    I know the aperture will be different, I'd like to get an idea of the sigma compared to my existing 17mmF2.8 which I trust as a really good lens.

    Thanks for your kind words everyone. I'm really enjoying this forum. Ullfric, I will see if I can set up a test between the Sigma and the Oly lenses. I will say that the bokeh is pretty good also on the Sigma, at least as wide lenses go.

    When I had time this week, I didn't have the Sigma in the bag. Sorry, I will try to get it this weekend possibly.
