Styllish, Great Performer, No Hood

  • 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

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.
  • 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.
