    Robin takes great shots ! I always enjoy his down to earth reviewing style.

    I certainly wouldn't say no if someone offered me the lens - otherwise its out of my price league.

    I'll just stick with the much-maligned-but-actually-quite-OK 17/2.8.

    Same here. I don't shoot enough at 17mm to justify the cost.
  3. In a totally unrelated coincidence, I just sold my little-used 17/2.8.....just in case.

    That man has an eye; he'd make any lens look great. Haha.

    I pre-ordered it because I think it's a great "package". I'm hoping it's something that can live on my camera most of the time, when I'm not shooting mostly people. Walkaround lens. I have some reservations about the focal length, being more familiar with a 28mm FOV. This "part 2" really makes me wish Olympus had done a 14mm instead. But then I probably would have skipped it, even with better build and the clutch focus, because the Panasonic is so freaking cheap.

    I wish they would hurry up and release it, haha. Then I'll have firsthand answers to all my questions.

    I love reading Robin's reviews. Ming Thein's reviews are equally awesome.

    Must be sharp enough for him.
