B&H Photo Video is pleased to share with photo enthusiasts the release of the latest Olympus 17mm f/1.8 M.ZUIKO wide-angle lens for Micro Four Thirds mount.
The 17mm f/1.8 M.ZUIKO Wide-Angle Lens for Micro Four Thirds Mount from Olympus is an all-metal 17mm prime lens designed for the Olympus line of micro four thirds cameras such as the E-PM2 and E-PL5 digital cameras. Its focal length is equivalent to 34mm in the 35mm format and its minimum focusing distance is 9.8" (25 cm). It is a very bright, fast lens ideal for everyday photography as well as street photography in which fast shutter speeds and sufficient light intake is important. Of course, with a wide maximum aperture of f/1.8, this is a fine lens for low-light photography and hand-held portraiture.
The Olympus 17mm f/1.8 lens features Movie and Still Compatible (MSC) autofocus which provides fast focusing for stills work and runs smooth and quiet, important when shooting video. The lens barrel has a snap-back ring which allows for manual focus control. Distance and depth-of-field scales for manual control are also easily viewable on the lens barrel. Four aspherical lens elements, including two dual side aspheric elements reduce aberration and provide sharp imaging.
