Great lens. Sharp and light weight.

Great lens and a must have for the E-P1 in my opinion. The lens is sharp (more so than the E-P1 kit lens). The perfect companion for the E-P1. Note: This lens does not ship with the View finder attachment that comes with the 17mm E-P1 kit.

A fantastic prime

By

from Chicago, IL  -  Photo Enthusiast

At an equivalent 24mm this lens has a very nice wide field, its sharp and its fast at 2.8 Could not recommend enough as a travel lens. Small and mighty.

Pancake 17mm good not great

By

from NYC  -  Semi-pro Photographer

If I am shooting on the street in an environment hostile to press cameras, it is handy to look innocent and pull out the little guy ( which is usually attached to my Pen Mini ) and not cause a ruckus. But the lens is relatively slow for a fixed focus. I shoot 1.4 or at slowest 2.0 if I can.

Not perfect, but very good

By

from Noway  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This lens is all about the size. It's small, and on my E-P1 I love it. I now take my camera with me everywhere, and it even fit in my jacket. (That's not the case with my other camera with its L-lenses. This lens is great for working around, streetshooting with more. It doesn't focus very fast, but I can live with that. I get great pictures, sharp with good colors.
