Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 17mm f/1.8 Lens Review
It's really up to you whether it creates good quality pictures...
Like any other lens, you have get familiar with it to the point where you pretty much know what to expect from it before taking the shot and don't compare it to any other lens. Then all will be well.
I owned it when I first bought my camera last year and really enjoyed the snap focus thing for street shots. I ended up selling it and going for the Panasonic 15/1.7 for better astro and landscape performance as I rarely, if ever, do street shooting and prefer the slightly wider fov.
If I could have afforded it I would have kept both and used the 17 for only street shooting.
Thanks for all the feedback. Bill
