Summary: I have this lens for a week now and i love it, it surely compact and light. Picture quality is superb nice to take street photography even landscape, if your looking for a really compact lens i recommend this one.
Summary: I was forced to buy my E-P3 with a kit lens since it was not sold as body only, so I choose the E-P3 and 17 2.8. This is a tiny and flat lens, hence the term "pancake." Hot dang, it's a fine little optic: perfect walkaround angle of view and easy to slip in a pocket or messenger bag. I've shot a lot of images and the color, contrast and sharpness are excellent.
Summary: Das Objektiv passt zu meinen beiden Olypus EPL1 + EPM1. Der Artikel war wie beschrieben eingetroffen. Negatife Seiten habe ich bis Heute keine festgestellt. Das Objektiv gefällt, da es Original Olympus entspricht. Der Kauf ,kann ich weiterhin empfehlen. Die Lieferung war sehr schnell.
Summary: While this isn't the sharpest of lenses, it is certainly a solid performer. Couple that with small size and fast aperture, this is a great lens for street and night shots. We use this for travel alongside a longer and slower zoom. It's easy to carry and a great choice for travel.
Summary: I bought this lens for my Olympus EP-2. I mainly use old Minolta manual focus lenses, but I wanted to have a small compact lens. This is lens is perfect for everyday shooting. The size of the lens makes the camera almost pocketable. The image quality is pretty good for the price, but doesn't compare to the legacy lenses that I use, like the Rokkor 50mm/1.4. The Auto-focus motor is a bit slower than most DSLRs I have used, but I have not used any other Micro-4/3 lenses.
Summary: If I could have given this lens 3 1/2 stars, I would have. It does have some things going for it: useful focal length good bokeh pretty sharp in the center But it also has some things going against it: horrendous CA (this cannot be overstated) beyond the center, sharpness is not good 2.8 is okay, but when there's a 20mm 1.7 running around, one has to wonder why this lens isn't faster also, m43 bodies correct for distortion, but natively the distortion of this lens is...
