FOCUS RING

    Do you enjoy switching from autofocus to manual focus for greater creative control? The 17mm f1.8 makes it easy with a two-position snap focus ring. With the ring in the autofocus position, you can either use AF or switch to manual focus using the camera controls. But when you want to shoot old-school, just move the snap ring to engage the Manual Focus Clutch for the satisfying feel of a classic mechanical lens as you focus in on your subject. A distance/depth-of-field scale on the lens barrel makes it easy to calculate the correct focus position; it’s great for zone focusing when you want to be stealthy while shooting street scenes.

  • SHOOT ALL OF THE ANGLES

    Whether your preferred subjects are friends and family, panoramic landscapes, unique architecture or all of these and more, the 17mm wide-angle is the perfect addition to your kit. It’s also a lens you can grow with; use the manual focus options to become a more complete photographer and capture the beautiful images you see in your mind’s eye for posterity.

  • MOVIE & STILL 
COMPATIBLE MECHANISM

    One of this lens’s most interesting features is the unique-to-Olympus Movie & Still Compatible mechanism, or MSC. This technology provides amazingly fast – and nearly silent – autofocus operation. You’ll really notice the benefit when you play back your HD video and the only thing you hear is the ambient background noise in the scene you were filming; what you won’t hear is the sound of the lens moving as it changes focus. This lens is perfect for tracking action. With MSC and the super-bright f1.8 aperture, you can film a school play or indoor sporting event in low light and still get excellent results.

A Classic.
Years ago when I first bought my original EPL-1 I paired it with the m. Zuiko 17mm ƒ2.8 and I loved it. The 17mm ƒ2.8 wasn't the sharpest lens of the block, but it didn't need to be. The focal length was perfect for street and the size made it easy to pocket. Those two attributes continue with what I consider to be the modern incarnation of that lens, the 17mm ƒ1.8. I absolutely love this lens. The build, the optics, the size, the weight, everything. The focal length of 17mm on a m4/3 body is just about perfect. The full frame equivalent of 34mm makes it an extremely versatile lens for a variety of photographic scenarios that I put myself into on a regular basis. I paired my copy with the LH-48B lens hood. I love the metal hood on the metal body, it just feels right. That's the thing about this lens, it just feels right. These days I shoot on an OM-D E-M10 Mark III, it's a smaller OM-D body and this lens is a perfect fit. There's just something about this combination that begs to be used, no, it demands that you use it. It has a feel, a potential that just seems to emanate. I purchased my copy in the Olympus Travel Lens Kit that ships with the m. Zuiko 14-150mm ƒ4-5.6 Mark II. That's a great lens too, worth of praise in its own right, but the combination together makes the the whole greater than the sum of its parts. At the end of the day, a lot of people may say that a 50mm equivalent is the classic focal length for street. I say that depends on the camera system. For Micro Four Thirds, there is no better classic focal length than 17mm. It just makes an OM-D feel, for lack of a better word, complete.

The Perfect Travel Lens for Dry Days & Nights
I really like to travel with my E-M1 II (and now III, if I ever get to travel again) and I love my M.Zuiko PRO lenses because they are so sharp ... and weathersealed. But they are also somewhat big and heavy for just everyday sightseeing shooting. That's where THIS little guy comes in -- at 17mm, it's perfect for street and landscape shooting, at f/1.8 it's perfect for indoor museum and restaurant shots, and it's short (and light) enough to make the camera feel travel-sized, as opposed to something you need to constantly keep from protruding into people and objects as you move. I recommend the metal lens hood to travel with this, because it not only protects the optics well but gives the whole kit a vintage vibe. It's a good, sharp-enough lens which kind of acts as a vacation from the larger, more "serious" PRO lenses. This one is just more fun ... as long as it's not raining, snowing, or blowing dust. But weathersealing gaskets would make it bigger and heavier, so that's the trade-off.

Extremely Pleased
As long as I’ve had my EM5Mark2 I’ve heard what a great lens this is. I just have to echo many of the great comments that I have read about this lens, but when it comes down to it, I just really love the small and solid feel of it on my camera, fulfilling the purpose of a small, easy to carry, top quality camera system. Compact, sharp, fun to use.
