Did no-one tell you that you cannot take pictures at night with MFT?

My apologies Richard, please let me know if this kind of postprocessing meets mainstream expectations, so I can do better next time ;)

I know these aren't full resolution nor the best examples of what this lens can do, but I thought I'd share them anyways. Last week I received the lens, however it was sitting on my desk for two days until I actually took it out for a quick walk. Maybe my copy of the 17mm f1.8 is particularly bad, but the 17mm Pro wide open is simply amazing, I always knew it would be optically better than its smaller sibling, but not by such an amount. It got obvious from the first files I opened on my computer. The performance of the big Pro lens actually made me do a side-by-side shootout (something I'd have never considered before), I might post those impressions in a different thread.

The Pro has its minimum focusing distance reduced by 5 cm, not much but noticeable. Even more the amount of detail throughout the frame when shot wide open.

The additional depth of field is more or less just a nice to have feature at this point.

And a last one again showing a close-up and some distant bokeh, the amount of detail left on the leafs and the bork is actually lost a bit due to the resized export of the image in DXO.

It was an impulse buy and I had second thoughts right after, however now after having it tried for the first time, I regret nothing. :ninja::whistling:

Congrats on your new lens! The close focusing distance makes more versatile than the f/1.8 imo. This and the excellent optical performance and the soft bokeh make it one of my favorite lenses.

Two from yesterday's lunch break walk:
