Best photojournalist lens for Micro Four Thirds period.
I bought this lens as a kit with the new and exceptional EP5 and it has been a wonderful addition to my M43 lineup. I now use it as my primary lens and shoot with it about 70% of the time. It is sharp, fast to focus, has nice bokeh and good color rendition. It renders color just warm of neutral which I also like. The size and weight is perfectly matched to the PEN and OMD cameras and the quality is very nice. I LOVE the way it looks with the hyperfocal scale on it, so nice with the EP5.

Much better than early reviews indicated
This lens was much anticipated in light of the medicer 17mm/2.8. Image quality is much better than the 2.8 and autofocus is very fast. Initial reviews lamented the lens did not compare with the 75mm or the 12mm. However, it's almost as good, comes in a beautiful metal housing, and is ideal for moving scenes because of its quick focusing mechanism. A winner!

Must have for Olympus kit!
This Olympus blue striped, 17mm lens has been long awaited by many OM-D and PEN users. It has a very solid construction, it focuses lightening fast, the 1.8 fast aperture, and is nice and sharp. While not pancake in design, it still out preforms it's predecessor, and it's rivals, and still smaller than the kit 14-42! The scale focusing ring is excellent and smooth! Not many complaints here.

The M.Zuiko Digital 17mm f1.8 ability to be flexible in shooting conditions
I'm traveling with the M.Zuiko Digital 17mm f1.8. Because I discovered how great this lens is on my Olympus EM5. What I noticed is how shard the image is in every shooting condition. when i at f 1.8 or f 8 which I consider two f stops this lens shines on which allows you two camera positions to find the ultimate sharpness in your CoC and depth of field. The lens is light , and focuses fast. It's not only a good close port rate lens, but great for illustration and street work. I enter the town of Vigone , Italy at night to find a small festival. With the M.Zuiko digital 17mm f 1.8 I was able to appreciate the personal sides of people you don't understand when you don't know them. I could work close to subjects and back off and allow people to express what they say as important in the moment.
