    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic lens for the price Don't let the online reviewers scare you away from this lens. It's great for travel and street. Super light and plenty sharp. I use it on my E-P3 with the VF-1 viewfinder for a simple, small and light setup for vacation travel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This lens is a grand slam I use this lens in all kinds of situations. It especially is fabulous in low light circumstances. It makes my Lumix gf3 so small it will fit in my pocket. A definite winner on all counts. A must for everyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An amazing prime lens I use this lens with my Oly Pen EP5 - an incredible combo. The lens is a must have. Great all around prime glass. Photos are tack sharp, even in low light. Wonderful for street photography, landscapes and portraits. I keep this glass on my camera all the time, it's my go to lens. I only shoot with primes because of the quality and sharpness. At this price point it's a steal. Don't give it a second thought, you'll love this beauty.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good thing, small package I originally purchased the black 14-42mm E-P2 kit, and have enjoyed using the included lens. But the 17mm 2.8 was beckoning, finally available in matching black! It's tack sharp, nicely made, with great bokeh. Next up, the M. Zuiko telephoto...(!)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from More for your money honey! This little lens is a gem. The price is right and its performance is crisp, bright and rewarding. A quality lens that you should grab, this one is a keeper. Autofocus is swift and true.
