Pros: Size, Ghiera Focus,sharpness,

Cons: Flare

Opinion: I love this lens, it's attached to my camera 90% of the time, maybe even 95. I appreciate it for its size; Portability has always been a strong point of Olympus cameras and lenses. Of course, in the pro line of the Japanese company's goals are not that small, for example the 17mm f/1.2 weighs 390g, which is not much compared to the canon 1.4 eqv which weighs as much as 760g, the point is that this 17mm f/1.8 weighs only 120. The differences with the older brother f/1.2 are there, and less bad given the price difference, but are these differences so important and obvious? For me, no, I would like to give up a bit of sharpness and brightness in favor of unparalleled portability. The quality of this lens is very good, it is quite sharp even at full opening. It is then built with sturdy materials and despite the barrels it has given here and shows no signs of wear or malfunction and for this reason I can definitely say that it is also reliable. Too bad only for flares that are sometimes annoying and for the lack of tropicalization, but you know, that is a feature that the company reserves for the PRO line. Another feature that I really appreciate is the dial for manual focus, on certain occasions I find it very comfortable to see with a glance the distances especially when I want to do street and I do not want to rely on the autofocus, which is good, but not 100% perfect. For professional jobs I bought the famous 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO, which is undoubtedly better in many respects. However it is much bulker than the 17mm which is in every way preferable for size and brightness. These are the motivations that motivate me to recommend this goal, I could safely sell the rest of the body slow and keep only this without me missing the other goals.

Pros: Focal, lightness, brightness, sharpness, autofocus, MaF's dial

Cons: For sale without paraluce (personally not a big flaw since I do not use it), stabilization not present (but present in the bodies Olympus machine)

Opinion: I've been using the 4/3 micro format for almost a year and I have to say that I really like it. I needed a 35mm equivalent as this is my favorite focal and this Olympus did not disappoint me in the slightest. Small, light, crisp and bright, this lens is the one I hold most attached to my machine body. It doesn't disappoint at full-time, retaining a great bokeh and excellent sharpness. I also love the maf's dial, with which you can select the manual MaF or the autofocus simply by pulling it up or down. The only flaw I have encountered is stabilization not present, since my machine body is a Panasonic that does not have the sensor stabilized, but it is nothing problematic, given the fairly short focus. In conclusion in my opinion it is a must have if you have a 4/3 micro set.

Pros: light light compact light

Cons: Nobody

Opinion: The 4/3 format for me is the ideal format to use for trips where you do not want to have clutter weights allows you to get off with laying times. an olympus micro 4/ 3 can not miss also because the quality is not lacking for common uses and the system is very cheap. I keep it as a machine for the whole family who wants to use it uses it

Pros: Compactness, construction, autofocus

Cons: I haven't seen any yet

Opinion: Just taken thanks to a promotion and I used it as the only lens last weekend around Lucca and I have to say that I did not miss any other goals. Mounted on an e-m10 Mark II is truly compact. Both in interior and exterior photos he behaved well. The only thing a bit like and when you do the change from autofocus from automatic to manual through the lens do not activate manual fire aids, but here could also be a problem that I have not yet found the right settings.

Pros: Lightness, ease of use, sharpness, compactness, aperture, fast autofocus.

Cons: I have not found

Opinion: The objective in question is one of the inseparable companions of my EM10ii. Both form a light and performing system. I say this because the pairing allowed me to take pictures that otherwise I would never have realized. The aperture 1.8 with Iso 1600 allows you to make great shots. So the 17mm is a great travel companion, great for the street, for portraits and for generalistic use. Definitely a must have
