    SHARP AT F1.2

    At Olympus, we bring the very best optics to life. Tools designed to work better so your photography is better. This advanced F1.2 PRO lens combines ultra shallow depth of field and ultra high resolution at the maximum f1.2 aperture setting. Unlike other fast prime lenses, we’ve removed the need to stop down for improved performance, so you capture brighter more beautiful photographs. The advanced ED-DSA element eliminates aberrations, distortion, and color bleeding while reducing the lens’ overall size, and our very best Z Coating Nano suppresses flares from in-frame light sources. All to ensure that every shot is sharp, clear, and exactly as you envisioned.


    Beautiful background bokeh makes all the difference in a professionally shot image. To give you complete creative control, the 17mm F1.2 PRO provides two types of bokeh effects. Shoot wide open at f1.2 to produce feathered bokeh that transitions smoothly from sharp to defocused areas. The softer background appearance enhances your subject. Or, produce traditional solid bokeh by stopping down the aperture, enhancing shapes in the background. Combined with the razor sharp subject, you’ll create a natural three dimensional effect. And because the 17mm F1.2 PRO doesn’t use filters in its optics, light transmission is maximized for sharp details and stunning bokeh effects in both bright and low light.


    Outstanding spur of the moment street and portrait photography requires sharp focus. Some fast primes compromise AF speed by using large focusing mechanisms with multiple elements. Fortunately, the 17mm F1.2 PRO is specially designed to be compromise-free. It uses a lightweight inner focusing mechanism to provide fast and sharp AF performance, even at the lens’ widest f1.2 aperture. Excellent close-up shooting capabilities help you to capture larger, more dramatic bokeh areas. And the Movie and Still Compatible mechanism provides quiet, smooth focusing – ideal for shooting video.


    Easily capture shots in challenging conditions without worrying about your gear. The 17mm F1.2 PRO’s premium metal construction is hermetically sealed to be splashproof, dustproof, and freezeproof (all the way down to 14°F / -10°C). Its optics are efficiently designed so that overall size and weight are significantly less than what you’ll find with other fast prime lenses. It’s the perfect complement to a compact weatherproof OM-D camera, a combination that’s ideal for all day handheld shooting in any environment.


    We’ve designed the 17mm F1.2 PRO to give you efficient and convenient control of your gear. The customizable Lens Function Button (L-Fn) lets you control your choice of camera functions right from the lens barrel. Programmable functions include Focus Peaking, AF Stop, and Magnify. The Manual Focus Clutch on the lens’ focus ring lets you instantly shift between auto and manual focus. You can preset a focus position using the easy-to-read distance meter, and by pulling the ring toward you, instantly return to that position from AF mode.


    We’ve designed the F1.2 PRO series with you in mind. No matter which focal length you choose – the 17mm for landscape and street photography, the normal 25mm, or the 45mm for portraiture – you’ll find a compact weathersealed design engineered to exacting standards. Each lens produces sharp resolution and smooth feathered bokeh at the maximum f1.2 aperture setting. And with the highest AF speed and accuracy, you’ll enjoy consistent beautiful results over and over again.

Bright with Solid Build and Detail

Once and awhile a lens comes by that is in a league of its' own. This is one such lens. As someone who enjoys landscape and street photography (and many other venues also), I find that this lens combines solid build quality with a bright aperture and sharp detail throughout the images. This is the only prime f/1.2 lens that I own, and it is enough, more than enough, for my needs and wants. The f/1.8 version is much smaller and no slouch, yet this one is in another league and I am glad that I have it to enjoy and to be humbled by.

Unique character makes this a must try

I spent some time saving for this lens, and a few hundred pictures later, I'm really glad I got it. This has to be one of the most expensive and most modern lenses I have. I usually use manual focus, and Olympus did an amazing job getting the feel of the focusing ring right. If I didn't know it was a servo focus by wire lens, I couldn't have guessed. Autofocus is also incredibly fast and quiet. It's a big lens and weighs more than my E-PL8 does. The best part of this lens is the character it has. I mostly use vintage glass, and I was really surprised how this lens looks in different kinds of light. It has a very nice character to it, and even though it has really high resolution and sharpness, at the same time it doesn't seem to feel "fake" or artificial or "too perfect." There's some modern lenses that just look so sharp or clinical that it doesn't feel the same way this lens does (I can think of a few of my more modern lenses that are really sharp and clinical). I'm not sure what Olympus did with this lens, but it somehow has this beautiful character to it that is hard to explain. At first I was unsure how this lens would be even though I loved the sample images I saw, but after shooting with this lens for the past few weeks and shooting with it the way I usually do, I'm so happy I got it. One thing about this lens is it seems to be designed in a way that reminds me of the Nikkor Noct lenses. It is optimized wide open so you can shoot into the stars wide open and they come out sharp in the corners and it has minimal coma. It also appears to have very little vignetting wide open. A lot of my fastest vintage lenses change their character a lot from wide open to where I stop them down. Most of them start softer with more bloom and haloes and heavier vignetting. This lens doesn't change character as drastically, and that makes the lens so useful for stars wide open. I rarely ever shoot with my lenses wide open, but just because the lens behaves this way wide open, I'm more likely to use it wide open than many of my other lenses. I don't save using the wide open aperture for special effects only. I also use this at f2, f2.8, and f4 a lot and I feel like it keeps its very pleasant character. Even if you usually use miniature format (full frame), shoot medium format, or large format, I think it's definitely worth getting a micro 4/3 (subminiature 110) system just so you can use this lens, even if it's going to be the only lens you get for it. It has something in it that will not only satisfy the modern specs, sharpness geartographers, but also a beautiful character that will make people who are trying to make art with any camera happy. It has done everything from my usual environmental portraits and dioramas to impressionistic photos of plants that I like to do. It doesn't matter what sort of system and format you usually use. You don't have to care that it has some weight to it or even weighs more than some large format lenses (to be fair many large format lenses are slower and have a simpler design, and modern fast mirrorless lenses for miniature format are often much heavier than this). This lens is unique and you can't find the character of this anywhere else in any other format. You have to try this lens. It doesn't matter if you rent it for a couple weeks, but this is such a special piece of glass and you are missing out if you don't try it and challenge yourself with it. Get out and make something beautiful!

Another tac sharp prime masterpiece from Zuiko

Sunning bokeh, extra extra sharp! I have had this one only for a short time and so far really impressed. Even though I am fairly new to the Zuiko famiIy, I can say their quality is upper top shelf and performance is very consistent. Having Zuiko precision tools has increased the value of my business and the quality of work I present to my clients.
Add this compact and lightweight M.Zuiko lens to your system so you can shoot like the Pros.
