I have searched and read much info on the Oly tele cons -14-B and 17. What I would appeciate advice from someone who has used both on the FZ-20. I know the pro and cons from what I have read but need some hands-on advice. Price is not a factor as I can get either at the same price. I guess what I am asking is - would one of these be a slam dunk winner over the other or as usual just a matter of personal preference?

The 14B is the hands down sharpness &image clarity winner , but at the expense of a little power.

I have both and use both and I also stack them you really can not go wrong with either.

But if you can live with a little less power the 14B is worth the extra money.

The 14B only vignettes up to 3X and the 17 up to 6X.
