Re: 'Base lens' for Pen-F

I too have the PL 25 f/1.4 and it is a very good lens. I think the 17mm is intended to add to the retro film era with a FoV of the much loved 35mm lens.

In the days of film I loved using a 40mm lens as it gave me just that tiny bit less FoV but was not as restrictive as the 50mm.

If Olympus were to ever make a 20mm f/1.8 or f/1.4 it would be my lens of choice for street style work.
