    I watched with some sadness as an Olympus 17/2.8 was auctioned off last week for a mere $120. I always liked that little lens, a nice focal length and decent speed. Sure the f/1.8 of the next generation can outpoint it, but it sure doesn't out-tiny it! :) 

    To my surprise it didn't sell.
    I saw it relisted today, still $120 or offer. I went a bit lower .. and this old lens is coming home again. I think I've always had silver copies but the black will look nice.

    It's served me well before, and it will be fun to have it back!

    Haha, I just bought a nostalgia 17 too. Got a black one and it works great on my Pen.
