M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 17mm F1.8 [34mm (35mm camera equivalent)]

A High-Grade Snapshot Lens That Delivers Big Performance in a Small Body

Taking advantage of our latest technology to compression the high performance of a much bigger lens into a sleek, compact design, this high-grade snapshot lens features nine lens elements including three aspherical elements optimally placed to offer outstanding image quality with high contrast and sharpness from the open aperture of f1.8 throughout the image area. Boasting a sophisticated metallic finish, this versatile lens also includes our Snapshot Focus mechanism for easy, quick pan-focus shooting, and the MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) autofocusing mechanism for fast, no-fuss shooting of both still images and movies.
