Olympus 17mm...& Panasonic 25mm

Folks,

Putting some feelers out to see if anyone is selling an Olympus 17mm f1.8 lens (preferably black!) and a Panasonic 25mm f1.4.

Not averse to buying new but would prefer to save a few quid if I can!

Chris

I could let you have my 17mm f2.8 pancake, but not my f1.8 I'm afraid!

Re: Olympus 17mm...& Panasonic 25mm

or I could let you have my 17mm 2.8 you sold me a while back -- only joking -- the lens has found a happy home mostly on the end of my Pen mini and performs to expectations for the price.

As for the Panaleica 25mm, highly recommended. It's the best m43 lens I have I reckon (though haven't tried the 75mm)

I've got to say I never got excited about my 25mm, which is why I sold it. I don't think it had that "sparkle" that Olympus lenses have. A lot of people seem to like it 'cos it has the "L" word in its name. I regard the 45mm and 75mm mZuikos in equally high esteem.

Re: Olympus 17mm...& Panasonic 25mm

both the Oly 17mm f1.8 and Pana 25mm f1.4 were on my list but funds are limited, there
was even rumour floating around the net that Oly might produce a faster 25mm f1.8, but i think it will just be that a rumour...

Don't agree about the 25mm -- find it has a very distinct rendering which I much prefer to the (no longer in my possession) somewhat brash 20mm. The 45mm is remarkably good for the money and gave consistently decent results on my recent walking holiday in Switzerland and it's a more useful focal length than the 75mm for me which is covered by the 75-300 (or the Nikon 105mm f2.5 if I need something fast).
