great photos, but quality control?

  • Summary: Bought for fixed lens complement for em-p2 two lens kit. But it wasn't quite the 'pancake' lens I imagined, not much smaller than kit lens. And more seriously it didn't attach smoothly to camera body, like something wasn't meshing.

  • Summary: Its not of prime lens quality. I just added another Oympus mft to my stable and compared my older 17 with the 14-42 zoom that came with the new camera. Its close to a stop faster but that's it.

Kind of pointless

  • Summary: The pen1 kit lens goes as wide angle as 14", so this basically isn't a very useful lens. The focus on manual doesn't seem to do anything when I rotate the focus ring. It makes a pen camera basically a point-and-shoot.

Ok Lens. Very compact, but some tradeoffs for the size.

  • Summary: I really wanted to like this lens. It's wonderfully compact. I got it as part of the 17mm kit with the E-P1. Having come from using DSLRs and a variety of other lenses, I found this lens to be a bit slow (f/2.8), fairly soft, and prone to chromatic aberration compared to most lenses I've used.

Фотообъектив Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 17mm f/2.8 Pancake Black

ДЕРБЫШЕВ НИКИТА, 24shop.by

  • Summary: Брал в аренду BMPCC с этим объективом, и заодно поснимал им на GH-1. Ничего интересного в этом объективе нет. Его можно иметь как универсальный широкоугольник на каком нибудь GF5, например, тогда получается компактная камера, которая имеет угол зрения примерно как у камеры в каком нибудь смартфоне,...
  • Pros: Цена, Размер, Вес, фокусное расстояние. Для такой цены и размера и веса приличная резкость.
  • Cons: С творческой точки зрения объектив ни о чем. Да и с технической тоже.

  • Summary: Das Objektiv hat mir in Punkto Größe (Jackentaschentauglichkeit!) und auch Verarbeitung (Metallbajonett) sehr zugesagt, weshalb es mir nicht leicht fiel, mich davon zu trennen.
