Haha! Yeah, I managed to get over all the 17/2.8 and give the lens a chance mostly because I thought the P20 just looked so darn ugly on the otherwise stylish silver E-P1. It was also half the price,...

Mark,

Dammit!!! No, I don't own the 17/1.8. Just a few minutes ago I tried to get in on a 20% off Oly refurbs deal, but they sold out of all the $300 17/1.8s before I got my order in!

Really, I...

I really like using my Sunpak 383 flash unit on my E-P1. You are probably looking for a dedicated unit though, but for ~$50 (120GN) vs ~$450 (Panasonic DMW-FL500, 162GN) the Sunpak is kind of a...
