Olympus M.ZUIKO Digital 17mm f1.8 Compact Wide Angle Lens, Black

Never knowingly undersold

Product information

The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 17mm 1:1.8 lens captures superb image quality for brilliant photos. Its ultra bright, large aperture not only facilitates the ability to capture shots with eye-catching depth of field blur, it also enables tripod-free shooting in low light conditions. Better still, the in-body image stabilisation found in the latest Olympus Micro Four Thirds System camera further accentuates the outstanding image capabilities. Combine this with Snapshot Focusing (which lets you set the focus scale), a high-speed autofocus and a ZERO lens coating for high quality results and you’ve achieved a brilliant image performance.
