Re: Any E-PM2 Users ?

This combination will easily fit into a couple of pockets or a small "bum bag". (I refuse to use the Americanism for this!) What really attracts me is the sensor size and quality, which will enable me to get large prints as required.
Stephen, you mention the 17mm f1.8. I have an E-PL5 (back up to my E-M1)and the 25mm and 45mm primes and have been thinking of adding the 17mm to give me a compact 'prime' system. How decent do you find the 17mm and is it as sharp as the 25mm and 50mm primes?

E-M1 Mk2, Pen F, HLD-9, 17, 25, 45, 60 macro, 12-40 Pro, 40-150 Pro, 12-50, 40-150, 75-300, MC-14, MMF-3 (all micro 4/3rds), 7-14 (4/3rds), 50, 135 (OM), GoPro Hero 3, Novo/Giottos/ Manfrotto supports. Lowepro, Tamrac, Manfrotto, and Billingham bags.
