Re: 17mm f1.2

I like the 17mm focal length. Having a wide aperture option is nice sometimes too. I owned the CV 17.5 f0.95 but didn't really get on with manual focus and it was a tad soft/low contrast wide open. I expect this new Olympus lens to be sharp from f1.2 so I can see its appeal. Whether I can justify its likely 1000+ price tag is another thing.
E-M1ii, Pen-F and too many lenses
