Hi folks, I've owned both these lenses and, foolishly, have since sold them both. Now, since Oly isn't seemingly ready to make a 17mm MSC lens, I'm looking at rebuying one of these two great little lenses for my soon to arrive PM1. Contrary to the luke-warm reviews, I quite liked the 17mm, though it was slow on the PL1. I expect a slight speed increase on the PM1 but not earth-shattering. The 14 was very nice too. The one thing that struck me about it though, and what I'm seeking clarification on, was that it didn't seem to have as close as focusing distance at the 17. I could get, basically, right in someone's face with the 17 and it did a good job of achieving focus. With the 14 I found I had to stand back a bit, not a lot, but certainly more than I did with the 17. I checked out the specs, but the difference in close focus distance between the two comes across as minor. That's not what it seemed to me in real-world use. Am I off on that assessment? It's a small thing but it's important to me. I like getting in tight with the camera. Thanks much.
