    I have the Oly 17mm offered for $350, it is in excellent one owner condition. The NEW Oly 25/1.8 is $349 free shipping. Which would you get?

    Get the 17mm. the build quality is better, and it has the pull-back-to-focus ring feature. Great all-around focal length as well.

    I'd buy the one that has the focal length I want. If it was 25mm that I wanted I'd look for a used one.
