Digital Camera Review
19 March 2013
  • Summary: When it comes to street photography or candid photojournalism photographers have relied on 35mm lenses for decades. The 35mm focal length provides a wide perspective that captures your subject and its surroundings but it isn’t so wide that it distorts the image.
  • Pros: Good image quality, Lightweight yet durable, Easy-to-use manual focus ring, Fast and quiet AF
  • Cons: Manual focus ring and AF not mechanically linked, Not the absolute sharpest lens available for micro 4/3

Olympus M.ZUIKO 17mm f/1.8 - Review / Test Report

13 April 2013
  • Conclusion: The Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm f/1.8 may not be a stellar performer but it is certainly an interesting lens considering its strengths. High speed wide-angle lenses tend to suffer from poor corners at large apertures but the Olympus lens actually does a decent job here.

  • Excerpt: This lens is the latest addition to the Olympus range of premium prime lenses for the micro four thirds system cameras. It can be used on either Olympus or Panasonic cameras. The new lens is not to be confused with an older 17mm f2.8 unit. The new optic is faster, sharper and has quicker auto-focus.

20 November 2012
  • Excerpt: During the Photokina 2012 fair Olympus officially presented several new lenses and announced they had been working on a 17 mm f/1.8 model. It seems designing and producing it was easy because already on the 15 November, less than two months after the fair, that lens was officially launched.
  • Cons: very high distortion,, significant vignetting,, huge astigmatism, visible up to f/5.6 aperture,, modest accessory kit.

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 17mm F1,8

19 April 2013
  • Summary: Ismét egy retro külsejű, profi Mikro Négyharmados objektív, a korábban bemutatott 12mm-es Olympus hasonmása. Ezúttal viszont 17mm-es gyújtótávolsággal és még jobb fényerővel. Színpadon (vagy kínpadon?) a 17mm-es Olympusok legjobbja!

Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 17 mm f/1,8

17 March 2013
  • Summary: szkło premium w ofercie Olympusa. Producent stara się zaspokoić potrzeby najbardziej wymagających konsumentów. W jego ofercie znajdziemy oprócz opisywanego tutaj ekwiwalentu 34mm trzy inne jasne "stałki" - odpowiedniki 24mm, 90mm i 150mm.
  • Pros: + jakość wykonania, + metalowa obudowa, + szybki i skuteczny autofokus, + rozdzielczość obrazu w centrum, + skuteczne powłoki antyrefleksyjne, + pierścień AF/MF
  • Cons: - przeciętny poziom aberracji chromatycznej, - wyraźna dystorsja, - wyraźne winietowanie, - brak czarnej wersji obiektywu
