What zap said. Bang for buck, you really can't go wrong with the panny 20/1.7. Its a pancake, awesome quality and a nice price. Especially if you can snag one second handpanny 20/1.7 is nice
I never thought of it this way to be honest. I took a look at my older photo's and my newest, and found that nothing I shot was over 50mm, with a few exceptions. Makes my stupididty all the more glaring for selling my original :43: and having to buy it all over again.Take a look at your favourite travel photos in the past and see roughly what focal range they were at, then go through the following and see what else matters:
I agree, I love my oly 17/2.8 and gotten great pictures off it, but 17mm is more in the 'wide' range, at 34mm equivilent (24-35 being sort of the normal wide).
That lens takes great pictures.
