So far so good

  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Strong Construction

  • Excerpt: I waffled over purchasing this lens because my Olympus EP-2 that I purchased in 2010 from B&H came with the 17mm 2.8 lens and I've been pleased with it together with the other Olympus and Panasonic lenses I have for my camera.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Strong Construction

fast focus

  • Summary: not the sharpest if you pixel peek but good overall, fast focus. I sold my copy of the Panasonic 20MM because of the slow focus speed, this does not have that problem, but may not be quite as sharp. I'll take speed over a tiny sharpness difference.

Styllish, Great Performer, No Hood

Jim, B&H Photo
28 March 2015
  • Excerpt: I purchased the lens to use with my street and landscape photography. I wanted a smaller less professional looking lens for my street photography and a sharper and lighter weight lens for my landscape photography. I was not disappointed.
  • Pros: Doesn't Intimidate People, Fast focus, Focuses at short distance, Good in low light, Stylish Looking, Takes Up Little In Bag, Very Lite Weight, Very sharp images
  • Cons: No lens hood included, Some chromatic aberration

Great upgrade over kit lens!

  • Excerpt: I had been looking for a fast prime lens for my E-M10 since the kit lens wasn't that great in low-light situations. After considering this lens, a few others from Olympus, and a couple from Panasonic/Leica I came to the conclusion that the 17mm was the lens for me.
  • Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

Enjoyable Lens

  • Summary: I'll admit this lens of mine no longer gets the use it used to once I got the 12-40 f2.8 pro, but I still take it out when I just want to snap some pictures in tight or enveloping spaces where I need a bit of a wide-angle edge without distortion, without the weight and bulk.
