    When I bought my Olympus E-PL5 a few weeks ago I applied for a free 17mm lens under an offer that Olympus were running. Well, it arrived yesterday. I've not tried it yet as I'm up to my eyes in refurbishing our upstairs bathroom but I hope to get out over the weekend to do some serious walking with the dogs (weather permitting) so I'll take a few shots and post them here. Meanwhile here's a quick couple of shots of it (taken with my old Canon Compact), I think it looks rather handsome and probably makes the camera pocketable as well. I hope to get a few prime lenses for this litle gem of a camera, definitely the 45mm will be arriving sometime soon and maybe one or two legacy lenses around the 28mm f/l with the appropriate adaptor - still researching those, and trying to determine what are the good buys, :smile:

    I prefer the old 17mm to the new one. Don't let pixelpeeper test chart readers tell you otherwise. It has a very nice character (and it's handsome, too)
