why not just make constant f4. f3.7 looks strange.

it they make 17-28mm f4, then it looks better.

If 08 is slightly wider, a little more at 12 or 14mm (35equivalent), then sui sui liao.

But 17mm (135 eq) is already very wide.
Thats about 11.5mm (ie. 10mm turn a little bit) on a Sigma 10-20mm on aps-c for example.
And no other advanced pns goes this wide.

I doubt its easy to make even wider with too many compromises to the edges due to the very small flange distance of the Q-system.

For me, its good to see the Q system grow with another new lens.
Hopefully, they will follow up with the tele macro.

You mean 17mm (135eq) , sorry, I did not understand (135 eq) , I thought was a typo error for (35eq), what is 135eq ?
11.5mm on Sigma is excellent , sui sui liao !

Same lah!
I meant 135mm film format.

But, yeah, its as wide as what we'd get with Sigma 10-20 at 11.5mm setting on K5 for example.

confirmed buying. 08 (17-27) + 02 (24-70) + 06 (70-200). What a combo...
