This stylish, compact beauty will incorporate a sophisticated focusing mechanism designed especially for top-notch snapshot photography.


This is an extremely bright, large-aperture, high-resolution lens and a must have for anyone looking to capture exceptional images on the spur of the moment. The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 17mm 1:1.8 is packed with the same advanced optical technologies that have proved so successful on other high-end Olympus lenses, including the silver version of the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 12mm 1:2.0 ‘Street Photography’ lens launched earlier this year. Attractive circular bokeh is a common strength, with none of the offaxis aberration or colour fringe effects that can otherwise spoil your shot. Both lenses also make it especially easy to set the depth of field for stills with intentional background blurring. Snapshot specialists will appreciate built-in depth of field and distance indicators that show the distance at which objects are in focus, so you can focus instantly without having to look at the camera display. These indicators come into play in Manual mode, which you activate by pulling back the focus ring.
