    You'll want the 15. I had the 17 before, but the 15 blows it away. It's a bit pricier, but well worth it to me. Someone is selling a new 17 on here for 360, I got my 15 for cheaper than that, like new condition grey market.

    Good luck!

    Here's a good review of the 15mm that also does a good compare between the 15 and 17. In short he likes them both but for him it's the 17mm focal length over the 15mm, so it's the O17mm for him.

    There is a thread on here somewhere asking 17 cs 15. The majority if not all choose the 15. The 15 has a special quality vs the 17. Only those that have owned both lenses know what I'm talking about.

    In the end up to you. The 15 is magic just like its Leica brothers 25 1.4 and 42.5 1.2. I own all by the way and it's the best trio

    Actually I know that thread:

    panasonic 15mm f1.7 vs olympus 17mm f1.8

    But I'm not sure many referred to it as magic. It is a nice lens, so is the O17. My point in adding the video was to point out that while 2mm may not seem like a lot, but 4mm angle of view is noticeable and might make more of an impact.

    I refer to it as magic along with its bigger brothers.

    Again many have owned both a chose to keep the 15 for a reason or vice versa.

    Just buy what you like no need to go in this pointless O
