Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm f/2.8 Pancake - Review / Test Report
23 October 2010
Conclusion: The Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm f/2.8 is a lovely little lens but unfortunately it does disappoint regarding its optical capabilities. You expect a top notch performance from a prime lens but the Zuiko isn't perfectly sharp neither at max.
Conclusion: Looking at the above list of pros and cons, you can see that the latter are quite a number. I guess it’s inevitable. You just can’t make a lens of these dimensions, these parameters that is free of aberrations. Alright, alright… Let’s say you can.
Cons: chromatic aberration going from medium to large with stopping down,, very large distortion,, coma visible at the maximum aperture,, working against bright light could be better,, noticeable vignetting at the maximum aperture.
