- Micro Four Thirds System
- 34mm (35mm Equivalent)
- Aperture Range: f/1.8 to f/22
- One DSA Element, Two Aspherical Elements
A flexible lens for general shooting, the silver M.Zuiko Digital 17mm f/1.8 from Olympus is a 34mm equivalent wide-angle prime for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. The wide field of view pairs with the bright f/1.8 maximum aperture to benefit working in difficult lighting conditions, and it also offers increased control over depth of field for working with selective focusing techniques. The optical design makes use of aspherical and high refractive index glass elements to control spherical aberrations and distortion throughout the aperture range for increased sharpness and clarity. Additionally, a Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) autofocus system is employed to deliver quick and quiet focusing performance and a manual focus clutch can be used for more intuitive adjustment and control over focus.

You must be lazy. Man up. Read the description of the product and/or research the Internet. You don't need to ask someone else to do your research for you. Cut those apron strings!

Regarding the focus ring, if the ring is pulled back and set to 5ft (red 5 number), what does that mean in terms of the f-stops and focus distance? Does that mean that anything within 5ft at f5.6-f/22 will be in focus -or- what? Any tips are appreciated!
Anything exactly at 5ft regardless of f-stops it's going to be in focus if you set it to 5.
