    I just picked up the 17mm 1.8 to compliment my EM10 MKII! What a fun little combo this is! First is a pic of the new combo,

    I am reading Olympus 17mm vs. 25mm I just try know using my 12-50mm to use the different focal length to figure out which is more likeable to me, so far the 25mm length is not bad at all. 17mm is not really in my comfort zone. I kep trying.

    I'd go with what you are comfortable with. My light setup is the EM10 2 with both the 17 and 45. I wanted more spread between the 2, the 25 is still a great lens also. For the extra money you get a better build quality on the 17 if that matters.

    Rick, thank you so much for your answer. Yesterday I went in my town and tried shooting what I usually do. At home I reviewed. Most of the pics were taken at a length between 15-22. So I guess the 17mm is the one to go, cos the 45mm does the other job.

    I also review3ed my old Nikon Photos, many of them were taken with the Sigma 10-20mm, so that shows me that the 17mm is again the one to go.

    The 17 also has the manual focus clutch which is nice, also metal instead of plastic

    Just a Snap.

    Yesterday at a temple I was very annoyed with my 17mm 2.8. This was the reason to, get a 17mm 1.8. Tomorrow we have a small family meeting and the 17mm 1.8 is just right for this indoor shooting.

    Still Christmas for me. If I had known and believed how much better this lens is compared to the 17mm 2.8, I would get it at the first place.
