Great Lens

Photo Guy, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This was not my first choice, the Panasonic 25mm f1/4 was. However the price went up $ overnite and the Zuiko 17mm was less expensive than I thought. Well I am extremely happy with my choice! For the price, I consider it a steal! Very sharp and delivers wonderful colors.
  • Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Indispensable lens for video

Rob Collins, Amazon
13 June 2014
  • Summary: All GH users should have this lens in my opinion, unless you have an expensive wide zoom, but even then the difference from 2.8 to 1.8 is so huge. Excellent sharpness and bokeh, wide but no fisheye-esque distortion, still reasonably flattering to a face.

Great Walk Around Lens

Hipshot, Adorama
13 May 2014
  • Excerpt: I waited too long before picking up this prime lens. Excellent optics. I forgot how good a prime lens with large aperture can be and the shooting opportunities that go with it.<br /><br />It is a little larger than the pancake lens but the optical and aperture differences make carrying the little extra weight well worth it. It is an all metal lens and I love the DOF scale.<br /><br />The transaction was done on the Adorama web site and delivery was very quick.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Good Low Light, Strong Construction, Very Fast Lens
  • Cons: Just A Bit Long

Great little lens

  • Excerpt: I'm a 35mm prime lens fan and this Olympus is really a great little performer. It's fast, contrasty and sharp ... nothing to complain about. I've been using it for over a month and I can tell you it's one of my favorite MFT glass.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Great Results from this Lens

B. A. Anderson, Amazon
25 April 2014
  • Summary: I wish I'd spent more and bought Olympus's 12mm f2 lens, but I am happy with the images that I get from the 17mm f1.8. I just wish it was wider. The only issue I have is that when shooting video, this lens has no stabilization with the Panasonic GH3, so video can be bumpy. Keep that in mind if you plan to use it for video with a Panasonic camera without a tripod. John Griggs and Ming Thein give this lens great reviews. That's why I bought it.
