Excellent value for the money. A great starter prime lens for sure!

  • Summary: I give five stars in all categories for this budget 17mm, f/2.8 Olympus lens. A true "pancake" lens, the 17/2.8 is often underrated by many micro 4/3 photographers and considered inferior to its cousin, the 17/1.8, but, in my opinion, it is an excellent value for such a low profile lens that makes your micro 4/3 system almost pocketable in pants pockets, but certainly in jacket pockets. This is, in fact, one of the main reasons I wanted to purchase the 17/2.8.

A must have staple for your Olympus OM-D E-M5

recycl-nista, Ebay
28 October 2013
  • Summary: I realized that I was stepping back more often than I liked. So it was time to buy the 17mm lens for my Olympus OM-D E-M5. I take a lot of inside apartment pictures and the 14-42mm didn't give me a wide view, even when using the wide-angle setting....so this lens fits the bill. I also like the smaller profile when I am carrying it. For beginners, try shooting with this lens at a high resolution, then play with cropping to find the subject sweet spot.

Sweet spot in format, size and price for street photography

nagappa, Amazon
23 October 2013
  • Summary: I bought the black version of the M.Zuiko 17mm F2.8 lens after selling my Panasonic 14mm F2.5. While the Panasonic 14mm is an excellent lens, and I highly recommend it, I found it to be a bit too wide for my needs for street photography. When I want to shoot really wide, I shoot at 12mm with my M.Zuiko 12-50mm kit lens that came with my Olympus OM-D.

  • Summary: Just got back into photography after a long break. Got the Olympus OM-D and added this wide angle. It's been great so far and works very well for landscapes and wide interior shots.

Good quality compact lens for olympus PEN

hendrikM, Amazon
13 July 2013
  • Summary: I guess this is the first Olympus prime lens that i have purchased. Previously, i used 14-42mm Mk2 Olympus, Panasonic 20mm f/1.7, Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 and PanaLeica 25mm f/1.4. Instead of buying another pancake 20mm (the 20mm is basically glued to my sister's GF1), i picked up 17mm pancake oly lens just for fun.

Ruins Videos

A. Koop, Amazon
21 June 2013
  • Summary: Buyer beware, this lens is completely unsuitable for filming videos. It has a very loud focusing mechanism that is picked up very loudly on the resulting video film. The description of the product should have mentioned this. Apparently they do sell a more expensive version of the lens that is more quite, but you wouldn't know to look for that unless you knew that this lens was loud in the first place. Therefore the product description is misleading.

A street photography champion.

Leo Martínez, Amazon
21 June 2013
  • Summary: After read many reviews all around the web pointing out the lens optics limitations, I purchased this lens "used" from a particular guy thru amazon (was actually like new to be honest... thanks _brian17_). Guessing what this little pancake could do for me, it seemed that "used" was the only rasonable way to get the Olympus 17/2,8, it is a 2,8 fixed lens, (it is not that complex inside) and overall I feel that it is a little over priced.
