In my opinion this is an underrated lens, while it surely might be as great as dedicated primes or larger and more expansive zooms, it is light, compact, convenient to use and still provides a usable range. Those might really not be the best examples, but more "everyday" results, all of them have been (over?)edited with DXO Photolabs:
We had quite some dramatic clouds two days ago, the weather couldn't decide if it should start pouring down, unleash a thunderstorm or keep being quiet.

Yesterday was a bit better, with the first half of the day being nice, but very cloudy in the evening, decided to head out anyways.

Stopped in the forest, close-up impression of some dead wood, this time SooC.

Further down the road the clouds slowly started clearing up - paving the way for a nice late-summer evening.

Quiet and peaceful mood on the lake. An air balloon sailing in the far background.

Once the sun was setting, the AF of my Pen-F started struggling to gain focus, a downside of the rather slow lens. In good light however, the focus is quick, not quite as fast as the Pro zooms or f1.8 primes, but still fast enough. Two years back I bought it on a discount to add as a compact, lightweight wide angle alternative to my 12-40 Pro, with the 17 f1.8 being my widest compact lens at the time.
