Sharp Images with Soft Bokeh

The Olympus 17mm f1.8 is a 34mm equivalent wide-angle prime lens for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. It has an f/1.8 maximum aperture that gives a shallow depth of field and selective focusing effect, even in dark environments. Aside from the soft bokeh, the Olympus 17mm f/1.8 is installed with a DSA (Dual Super Aspherical) element, two aspherical elements, and a high refractive index element that significantly reduce distortion and spherical aberrations resulting in sharper, more accurate images.

Movie & Still Compatible Mechanism

One feature unique to Olympus is the Movie & Still Compatible mechanism (MSC) technology that makes its internal mechanism nearly silent when auto-focusing. This is very helpful when recording a video, so all you can hear is the ambient sound and not the lens’ movement. MSC also helps capture better photos even in low-light settings like inside a restaurant, an indoor sports event, or a busy street at night.

Two Position Snap Focus Ring

The Olympus 17mm f1.8 has a two-position snap focus ring that makes it easier to switch from autofocus to manual focus. If you want to shoot old-school, you can move the snap ring to engage the Manual Focus Clutch for direct, intuitive focus control. A distance/depth-of-field scale on the lens barrel makes it easy to calculate the correct focus position. This is very useful for street photographers who love shooting from the hip. You can manually set the focus and stealthy shoot the human behaviors. This 17mm f1.8 lens from Olympus is also compact and lightweight, ideal for photographers on the go.

Wide-Angle Ready

Ideal for street scenes, travels, and landscapes, the Olympus 17mm f1.8 lens has a superb 65-degree wide-angle view that makes panoramas and horizons more cinematic. This lens also exemplifies the beauty of skyscrapers and cityscapes. And because of its built-in elements, spherical aberration and distortion is reduced.
