A key contributor in the downsized design of the Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm f/1.8 is the optical layout, which includes two aspherical elements and a further ‘dual super aspherical’ element. A high refractive index element is also included in the total count of nine elements arranged in six groups. The overall aim is for good sharpness, contrast and color rendition with the minimum of unwanted aberrations.

The stepping motor-based autofocus system is typically quick for stills and smooth for video, while also being virtually silent in operation. Manual focusing is also a particular joy with this lens. A built-in clutch mechanism enables you to pull the manual focus ring backwards, not only to engage manual focus mode but also to reveal a focus distance scale, which comes complete with depth of field markers for f/5.6, f/11 and f/22, making zone focusing available.

Thanks to the f/1.8 aperture rating, you can maintain fairly fast shutter speeds even under low lighting conditions, without needing to bump up the camera’s ISO setting too much. It’s a bonus for freezing movement as well as for avoiding camera shake in Micro Four Thirds cameras that lack in-body stabilization. It also allows for a fairly tight depth of field, at least when shooting close-ups.

Build quality is impressive, despite the small, lightweight construction of the lens. It feels robust and well-engineered, although it doesn’t feature any weather seals.
