Olympus 17mm f/1.2 overview

  • 1Description

Pairing a sophisticated optical design with an exceptionally bright maximum aperture, the M.Zuiko Digital ED 17mm f/1.2 PRO from Olympus is a versatile wide-angle, 34mm-equivalent prime for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. The lens's calling card is its fast f/1.2 maximum aperture, which suits working in difficult lighting conditions and avails greater control over depth of field. Also, a complex 15 elements, 11 groups construction combines extra-low dispersion, aspherical, and high refractive index elements to significantly reduce both chromatic and spherical aberrations for notable image clarity, sharpness, and color accuracy. A nine-blade aperture is featured as well, to achieve a smooth bokeh quality when working with shallow depth of field techniques, and a Z Coating Nano has been applied to individual elements to limit flare and ghosting for improved contrast.

Beyond the imaging assets, the lens' physical design is characterized by a weather-sealed construction to benefit working in harsh climates. It also features a Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) autofocus system for smooth, quiet, and fast focusing performance that is suitable to both stills and video recording. A manual focus clutch permits quick switching to MF control and a printed depth of field scale is also featured on the lens barrel for pre-focusing and hyper focal focusing techniques.

Standard wide-angle 17mm lens is designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras and provides a 34mm equivalent focal length.
Exceptionally fast f/1.2 maximum aperture supports working in difficult lighting conditions and affords extensive control over depth of field for selective focus techniques.
The intricate optical design employs one Super Extra-Low Dispersion element, three extra-low dispersion elements, one Extra-Low Dispersion Dual-Sided Aspherical element, one Extra-Low Dispersion Aspherical element, one Super High Refractive Index element, and one aspherical element, which all work in concert to control chromatic and spherical aberrations for improved clarity, reduced color fringing, and enhanced sharpness.
A Z Coating Nano has been applied to individual lens elements to noticeably reduce surface reflections and prevent lens flare and ghosting for improved contrast and color neutrality in strong lighting conditions.
An 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.
Programmable L-Fn (lens function) button for easily accessible settings adjustment.
Weather-sealed construction guards the lens against dust, moisture, and freezing temperatures for working in harsh environments.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing bokeh quality.

    Olympus 17mm f/1.2 reviews

    M.Zuiko Digital ED 17mm f/1.2 PRO Lens is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Precision Instrument - Sharp and DOF Scalpel Absolutely the sharpest lens I have ever owned in 45 years, and in that time I have owned OLY 35, Mamiya 6X7, and Mamiya C330 6X6 TLR lenses. High micro-contrast. At F1.2 the center, edges and corners are equivalent to my Olympus PRO 12-40 at 17mm F2.8. By F2.0 center and edge exceed sharpness of my Oly 60mm F2.8 macro at F5.6, which had yielded my sharpest images. Despite having a moderate wide FOV, this lens at F1.2 shooting a full height person in landscape view produces noticeable separation between the subject and foreground and background. Bokeh is soft and luscious when objects are close, and DOF is more limited than you might expect for this 34mm full-frame equivalent. It balances well on my my EM-1, but I have tried it out on my EP-5 and don't feel the weight is too much. Keep in mind, In my 45 years in photography I always brace the lens in my left hand with the body in my right, and if the camera isn't in my hand with a wrist or finger strap then it's in my bag. Yes, it's expensive, but if you wan't the absolute best, a precision optic, the sharpest, most contrasty lens, this is it. Yes it's expensive, but it ain't Leica expensive, and I would bet it's sharper than ANY Leica lens. Warning . . . don't buy this lens if you wan't old school "buttery smooth" images or "Leica-like" character to go with your high end tube audio gear and $30K turntable.
