Good low light performance and depth of field control
The lens features a super-fast maximum aperture of f/1.8, this enables the lens to transfer up to 8 times more light to the sensor than a conventional zoom lens at the same focal length, and enables the camera to capture sharp and blur free images, even in low/dim light. The large f/1.8 aperture, combined with the 7-blade aperture, also enables you to capture a shallow depth of field, which will enable you to isolate your subject from the background for visually striking images.
Special lens elements
The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 17mm f/1.8 lens features an optical construction that includes three aspherical elements including a Dual Super aspherical, one High Refractive index element, and a ZUIKO Extra-low Reflection Optical Coating. These elements work together to effectively reduce internal reflections and lens aberrations to provide sharp images.
Fast and near silent internal MSC autofocus system with manual override
A MSC autofocus system, along with an internal focusing design, provides quick, quiet, and precise focusing performance to benefit both still photo shooting and movie recording. Additionally, an MF clutch is used for fast changing to manual focus for more precise control.
