That last shot really shows the DOF capable in this lens. Nice shot!The 17mm arrived today and I had try it out of course. After a 33 degree day the beach was the spot to be this afternoon. My daughter is a semi willing subject so grabbed a few photos before heading out for a swim. All are shot at F1.2 on my Panasonic G9.
I am really enjoying my brief time with this lens, it is expensive but the image quality at F1.2 is amazing Olympus have really nailed it.

Yeah, it's not bad. There's definitely more blur than with the 17/1.8, 15/1.7, etc., but I'm still not 100% sold on the lens. It's no fault of the lens, it's a fantastic piece of glass, but after shooting with the 25 PRO for so long, the 17 PRO is an entirely different lens. You have to get much closer to your subject to separate them from the background.I'm kind of impressed by the amount of blur. I particularly like the last picture.
