Panasonic Leica 15mm f/1.7 vs Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm f/1.8 – The complete comparison

Small and portable fast aperture primes are abundant within the Micro Four Thirds lens range, with two of the most alluring being the Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 15mm f/1.7 and the Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm f/1.8 for those who love moderate-wide photography.

The former has what can be considered a unusual focal length since, in Micro Four Thirds terms, it gives you the same field of view as a 30mm designed for 35mm/full frame cameras, placing it between the more popular 28mm and 35mm focal lengths.
