    This lens features a 37mm filter thread so you can use a range of different filters, or even attach a lens hood when blocking stray light is more important than stealth and portability. It sports a 5-blade circular aperture unit, and at wide-open aperture will deliver nicely defocused backgrounds when that’s the desired effect.

  • IT’S SUPER PORTABLE

    Portability is at the heart of what makes Olympus PEN and OM-D cameras special. Having advanced technical features typically found on cumbersome – and expensive – DSLRs in a compact camera you can slip into a pocket or purse is a wonderful thing. And when you pop this 17mm pancake onto a PEN or OM-D body, you’ve got a slick little package with the power to capture razor-sharp images of whatever catches your eye.

Lovely lens for candid shots!
A favorite among my lenses. Fast enough for my use and ultra compact that it is actually almost permanently attached to my E-PL5.

Sharpness can come in small packages
First off, I do not give products 5-Star ratings. This lens, I do. I recently purchased an older EM5 so I could learn the Olympus system, anticipating buying a Mark II down the road a bit. I purchased an Olympus 14-42mm Four Thirds lens, the M43 40-150mm lens and the 17mm f2.8 pancake lens. This review is for the latter. This is my first pancake lens by any maker for any of my camera systems. It is also the fastest focusing lens of the 12 lenses in my camera case. Touch the screen and it is almost instantly focused and ready to go. It moves so quickly that the camera focuses and snaps the photo before my brain even registers that I've touched the screen. VERY sharp images from this lens. I've adapted several film lenses from various makers to this EM5 but at the end of the experiments, this pancake lens goes back onto the EM5. This is my new walk around lens until I can afford the 12-100mm f4 PRO later this Spring. Photographs made from this lens are sharp and highly detailed. While this lens is among the least expensive lenses in the Olympus M43 line-up, I think it has to be one of the sharpest out there. This lens is so light that I can toss it into the air, drink a Coke, toss the bottle in the trash and reach out and catch the lens on its way back down. Light, but very solidly built. It looks like a tough cookie. If you are looking for a slightly wide "normal" lens, then this prime lens may be the one you are looking for.

My Go to lens for street photogrpahy
i love this lens for the fact that its 17mm and I have used it in the city and shot some sunsets with it. I prefer the 1.8 but this is a really decent lens fo the price you pay for it. Its small pancake look streamlines the camera a little bit and make it more portable which is a plus. You need this lens in your kit. I only real drawback is when you add a UV filter on it, it sticks out a little. that is just cosmetic.
