M43.eu (translation here) just posted the very first worldwide full size image samples taken with the soon to be released Olympus 17mm f/1.8 lens! Once you click on the linked website you can see all the pics (there are two pages of them). CLick on the thumbnail to open the full size images. Let us know what you think about the image quality. In my eyes this looks definitely much better than what I can get with my little old 17mm f/2.8 lens :)
A special thanks goes to the M43 admin for finally sharing us such a precious info!
