Style Name: 17mmColor: Silver
This is small lens. That's its main claim to fame, not the speed at f2.8, nor the focal length, the equivalent of about 35mm in 35mm photography. But on the small Olympus PEN body, this lens gives you a small package that takes quite good pictures without messing around with a zoom. In particular, it works well as a walking-around street camera, much like an old Leica or a Canon rangefinder of the 1950s/1960s. (See also the optical viewfinder which has image lines specifically for this 17mm lens.)

I tried this package out, camera, lens, and viewfinder, and got a good number of excellent images walking through crowds of people downtown. It's wide enough to catch people in their immediate environment. The camera is unobtrusive and really helped with the casual picture taking. I'd strongly recommend the setup to folks looking for a forgiving digital imaging setup with modern features but much of the ease of handling and casual ability of old rangefinders (without having to focus of course).

I bought the black version of the M.Zuiko 17mm F2.8 lens after selling my Panasonic 14mm F2.5.

While the Panasonic 14mm is an excellent lens, and I highly recommend it, I found it to be a bit too wide for my needs for street photography. When I want to shoot really wide, I shoot at 12mm with my M.Zuiko 12-50mm kit lens that came with my Olympus OM-D. I did consider getting the new M.Zuiko 17mm F1.8 as well as the new version of the Panasonic 20mm F1.7, but found them a bit to pricey for my needs, since I already own a Panasonic-Leica 25mm F1.4 lens. I did also consider the Sigma 19mm, but did not like the extra size.

The 35mm equivalent format is what's used in Fuji's X100S and the one favored by many enthusiasts. It is touted as the format that matches the field of view of the human eye. With its 34mm equivalent format, the M.Zuiko 17mm F2.8 hits the sweet spot in terms of format, speed (F2.8), sharpness and price. So for an affordable "one size fits all" wide pancake lens, I thought the M.Zuiko 17mm might just fit the bill!

I was indeed aware that the M.Zuiko 17mm F2.8 did not score too highly in the technical reviews, especially that the slight corner softness persists across all apertures, and that the chromatic aberration (CA) is easily noticeable along the edges in high-contrast scenes.

But where the rubber meets the road is in actual user experience, especially street photography.

It's small size, metal barrel and plastic manual focus ring make this lens a joy to handle. It easy to use in a discrete way. While auto focus is slower than on my M.Zuiko 12-50mm kit lens, it is accurate and fast enough for capturing spontaneous street pictures.

The lens is sharp wide open at F2.8.

The M. Zuiko 17/2.8 has a bit of a bad rap because people often compare it to the outstanding Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 lens. However, 17mm is very different from 20mm, and if you want that "standard wide" angle of view (similar to a 35mm lens on a 35mm frame camera) in a tiny lens, this is the one. Fortunately, it is plenty sharp, and the distortion and color fringing are easily addressed (automatically for Olympus in-camera JPEG shooters as well as by some 3rd party RAW converters). Although I use my Pana 20/1.7 more often, I enjoy using the tiny M. Zuiko 17 when I want that angle of view. It's a good little performer. You can see some samples taken with this lens here: [...].

Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm f/2.8 Micro ED Digital Zoom Lens (Black) for PEN Micro 4/3 E-P1, E-P2, E-P3, E-PL1, E-PL2, E-PL3, E-PM1 Cameras

I originally purchased my Olympus Pen E-PL2 in a kit with the variable 14-42 mm lens. Not being able to use that lens anymore, and not being overjoyed with it, due to it being damaged by accident and by it having to be manually extracted and retracted, I replaced the 14-42 mm lens with this 17 mm fixed lens.

Wow! *****

The 17 mm lens has been a delight. If focuses quickly and correctly. It focuses closely, too, and it performs very well in low light. This lens produces very clear and superb resolution images. It automatically extends when you turn on the camera (which the 14-42 lens does not), and is immediately ready to take photos.

I recommend a UV filter for protection. And, I recommend this lens highly as your first choice.

I purchased this lens for my Olympus E-PL1 before leaving for my recent vacation to Disney World and Epcot. I used it to take handheld night stills of the fireworks over Cinderella's Castle and a handheld video of the finale fireworks at Epcot - both turned out fabulous!

I had previously considered the Panasonic version, having read multiple glowing reviews about how much better it is than the Olympus lens, but went with the latter mainly due to the price difference, smaller size, and lighter weight, and I'm glad I did. If the Panasonic is really superior, I doubt very much if that difference would be apparent in almost all photos for all practical purposes. The Olympus lens is, in my experienced photographic opinion, excellent and a real bargain at it's price point.

In summary, this is an excellent lens for the E-PL1, which in turn is also an excellent digital camera - some bargains are still available for this camera and, paired with this wide-angle lens, is a very nice compact and lightweight outfit. I did take my Canon 40D DSLR and complement of lenses on the trip, but I seldom elected to lug it around electing instead to carry the very lightweight Olympus instead. My back and neck thanked me for it!

I'm enthusiastic about this lens and can recommend it highly.
