This is a slightly disappointing curve but the results are impressive across the most-used apertures given the wide angle-of-view offered

This compact pancake lens sports a fast f/2.8 maximum aperture and is compatible with all Micro Four Thirds cameras. The isn't equipped with in lens stabilisation ,which is typical for pancake lenses, but Olympus camera owners will be able to take advantage of their camera's in-body stabilisation...

The 14-42 IIR kit zoom is too bulky for a jacket pocket; therefore I bought this 17 f2.8 for my E-PM2 for lightweight daily carry. This prime lens fits fine in my pocket as planned. As this stage of its life, it is being sold at a discount at most places and even cheaper bought second hand.

i love this lens for the fact that its 17mm and I have used it in the city and shot some sunsets with it. I prefer the 1.8 but this is a really decent lens fo the price you pay for it. Its small pancake look streamlines the camera a little bit and make it more portable which is a plus.

Utterably forgettable in almost every way, yet a pancake lens that does nothing wrong. Not recommended at retail price, but something worth purchasing in the second hand market.

    Pancake design, can be aquired cheaply in second hand markets.

    Forgettable image quality, nothing compelling about it.

Great addition to my PM2. In fact, the camera is worthless without it.

At an equivalent 24mm this lens has a very nice wide field, its sharp and its fast at 2.8 Could not recommend enough as a travel lens. Small and mighty.

I have never really shoot a lot of primes except on my M6. I never saw the point as sharp and fast as zooms are now a days. But I was pleasently suprised at how quick I feel in love with this lens. 17mm or 34mm equvilent seems to be the perfect focal lenght for me.

    Small, fast, sharp, contrsty

    None what so ever
