I've read everything I can about this lens, so I know its flaws. But still . . . For me, the allure of m43 is its size. My favorite combination is a PM2 + Panny 14mm because it both takes great pictures and its tiny--I routinely carry it in my pocket. However, sometimes 14mm is too wide, which has me thinking about the 17mm. I know it's not as good as the other pancakes, but is it that bad? With prices for new lenses dipping below $200 (eBay), I'm tempted to give it a try. For what it's worth, I also have the 20mm pancake, but I find this just a tad too large to fit comfortably in most pockets. Opinions wanted!
