  • Summary: The Olympus 17 mm 1.8 is a nicely built lens with which you can focus quickly and accurately, automatically or manually. On this Olympus 17 mm 1.8 lens is a ring, which acts as an AF / MF switch. The focus ring stops at 25 cm or infinity and the focus ring has a pleasant resistance when focusing. This takes away the concerns that some photographers have against the electronic focus-by-wire system.
  • Pros: High brightness, High resolution from corner to corner, Low distortion jpg files, No internal reflections by flare, Comfortable manual focus
  • Cons: High (5%) distortion uncorrected RAW files, Vignetting, especially at aperture <2.8, Rings in bokeh
