I got this from A& R photo

  • Summary: I got this lens for my Panasonic GM-1. At first, on the Internet, this lens is underrated but somehow once I recieved it tested it, this lens produce very sharp images. Personally I think handling and rotation of the lens is quite nice. Although it is bit noisy when autofocus, but it does give a good job. If you are a student and you don't have budget on f1.7, I would recommend this. A&R photo is kindly to provide a lens hood, and all accessories you need.

This lens suits me perfectly.

  • Summary: I know that the F1.8 is regarded as a better lens, but it costs half as much again and it is 1 cm wider. I wanted a slim lens so that the E-M1 would still slip into my briefcase.

Under rated Gem.

  • Summary: This lens is beautifully constructed and has nice and sturdy metal mount, with very good image quality. The lens balances beautifully with Micro Four Thirds camera and it is a joy to use. This lens got many beatings on online review forums, but in real life the image quality is top notch. I do see that corners are not as sharp as the reviews indicate, but for most photography applications it is a non factor.

  • Summary: Works very well. Is compact and easily stored in my travel camera kit/case. I am still learning to use it, so any issues I have with it, are user issues.

A photographer's choice

  • Summary: ------------ Bottom-line ------------ This lens embodies an excellent balance between optics and performance -and the final result is excellent. ----------- Details ----------- Forum junkies will tell you that resolution is ok, and that it has some "noticeable" distortion. For them, this lens wouldn't get more than 3 stars. Let them be. Photographers -on the other hand- will find an excellent balance between optics, size, and overall performance.

  • Summary: This lens is very like a 35mm lens in film cameras. It is not that fast but is certainly fast enough for 90% of subjects.

This is an amazing lens!!! :)

  • Summary: I purchased this lens with an Olympus E-P2 kit for cheap on eBay and its one of my favorite lenses!!! I'm a commissioned photographer with work that will soon be in a gallery in Santa Fe and I think the quality of this lens is just right to spark the nostalgia of a bygone film era! I've had two copies of the Panny 20mm F1.8 lens and it's a tack sharp lens but I prefer the Bokeh of the 17mm pancake and it feels great on my E-P2.
