Product Description
 

The fast aperture of the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 17mm f/1.8 Lens (Silver) makes it perfect for low-light photography. Olympus’ MSC focusing system (Movie & Still Compatible) provides extremely fast yet silent autofocusing for both stills and video. Its special manual focus clutch mechanism makes switching between autofocus and manual focus extremely easy. This new lens uses a metal lens barrel with a premium finish.

This lens features Movie and Still Compatible (MSC) autofocus with an inner focus system, which provides fast focusing for stills work and runs smooth and quiet, important when shooting video. The lens barrel has a 'Snapshot' ring which pulls back for manual focus control. Distance and depth-of-field scales for manual control are easily viewable on the lens barrel when the Snapshot ring is pulled back. Three aspherical elements, including a Dual Super Aspherical element to correct aberrations, as well as a High Refractive index element to correct high spherical aberrations, provide quality imaging and ZERO (ZUIKO Extra-low Reflection Optical Coating) lens coatings are applied to the elements to reduce lens flare and ghost images
