Ok, but...

  • Summary: Was delivered in a timely fashion and in good shape .The lens itself is very well-made. I like the way it looks and the way it fits on my camera. But in spite of the reviews, I was very disappointed in the angle of coverage it is not as wide angle as I'd hoped . Will have to keep searching..

Good lens, but a little too much

  • Excerpt: This is a great walk around lens and even capable for portraits. Paired with the OM-D EM-1 it is a killer combination. I might recommend the 25mm 1.8 over the 17mm 1.8 as it appears to be a bit sharper ... Although I still feel the 17mm 1.8 is a better travel or all around lens.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

Buen lente

  • Excerpt: Es un lente de buena calidad, produce imágenes muy lindas pero no es muy nítido. La fabricación es buena pero y el anillo de enfoque se mueve muy suavemente. El autoenfoque es muy rápido. Es un bonito lente y produce un lindo bokeh, pero si buscas un lente que sea muy nítido quizás esta no se a la opción para ti.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

Love the size and quality feel of this lens. Could have better color rendering.

  • Summary: Personally I think that this and the Olympus 45mm 1.8 are two lenses you must have if you own a m4/3 camera. This lens delivers stunning sharpness and quality in almost every shot and the cost is insane for the value. The manual focus 'clutch' is a superb design that I have not experienced before this lens and I love it. Basically you pull the focus ring back with your hand and it automatically engages manual focus.

Good lense

  • Summary: A bit noisy, but excellent objective. Robust, well built, because of the micro 4/3 the angle is not so wide.

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. Works great for nightscapes as well, with its relatively wide aperture.
