    I bought an O17/1.8 this week, and I also got delivered an XE1 to try.

    TBH, I'm enjoying the Oly 17 more!

    It's snowy and grey, but I still enjoyed the lens on a walk-around today. I'm not at all regretting the move from the P20. The O17 is a little thicker, but not by much, and I'm not missing anything in sharpness (I didn't do any head2head tests, but I'm happy with my images), and the quickness to AF is wonderful. I add a little vignetting myself, though, as I find it pretty even across the frame, and I usually prefer some vignette.

    Some from today:

    The first two collie shots I post processed a bit -- upping the clarity and maybe the contrast. I don't think I touched the 3rd. Maybe it's better just OOC, and not having me touch it!

    Really nice shots! I especially like the third collie shot. Looks so much like our wonderful collie we had when I was a kid. My 17/1.8 is scheduled to arrive on Tuesday. Can't wait! :biggrin:

    Lovely set. Really like monochrome bridge shot (nr 4). Glad you're enjoying your new toy!

    Amazing shots, this lens has beautiful rendering. Love the bokeh.

    Do you still use your PL25mm after getting this lens?

    Not at present - new lens syndrome (NLS) but I don't think I'll drop the PL25. It's a FOV and a lens I enjoy.
