That's not all that much "isolation" for f1.2, but all reports are the Nokton is a beautiful piece of work.
My point was that if subject isolation was your object, then a 25 or 45 would be a better choice and not cost more.
As I said, *if* the performance of the 17/1.8 was really amazing I would think of trading in my 17/2.8, but I'm not seeing it would be worth it to me... and I like the little pancake 17 for what it is.
Disappointing that Oly didn't come out with a knockout 17...
Me... I'm still holding my breath for an affordable Oly 25/2.8.
>>Obviously, you won't get full frame level of subject isolation, but you certainly can get decent isolation at f/1.4. This isn't f/1.4, but it's close (f/1.2), on the E-M5 with the Nokton 17.5 f/0.95...I have to say, I generally would prefer an AF lens to a manual focus lens (unlike many here), but if the 17/1.8 comes in at a price similar to the 75/1.8 and 12/2, I'd much rather have the 17.5/0.95 for the money. It was the most surprised I've been about a lens in a long time. Really wonderful.
