Olympus M.Zuiko PRO 17mm f/1.2 Black Lens
The technical details behind this lens
Olympus M.Zuiko PRO 17mm f/1.2 Black Lens offers remarkable performance. This lens features a fast f/1.2 maximum aperture that supports working in difficult lighting situations and affords extensive control over depth of field for selective focus techniques. In regard to the optical design, the 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 work together in concert to control chromatic and spherical aberrations for enhanced clarity, reduced colour fringing, and improved sharpness. Offering A Z Coating Nano, this feature has been applied to individual lens elements to reduce surface reflections and prevent lens flare and ghost effects for improved contrast and colour neutrality in strong lighting environments.
Movie and Still Compatible
Featuring an MSC autofocus system, along with an internal focusing design, It delivers quick, quiet, and precise focusing performance to benefit both still photo shooting and movie recording. An MF clutch is used for fast changing to manual focus for more precise control.

Our expert's opinion
The M.Zuiko Digital ED 17mm f/1.2 PRO. The ED-DSA lens possesses the characteristics of both ED (Extra-low Dispersion) and DSA lens1 elements, of which Olympus was the first manufacturer to successfully mass produce. The ED-DSA lens makes it possible to significantly reduce the number of required lens elements, resulting in a lighter product. This construction also effectively compensates for various types of aberrations that tend to occur on wide-angle lenses, such as comatic aberration, distortion, and colour bleeding on the image periphery (magnified chromatic aberration). Extensive use of special lenses incorporated into 15 elements in 11 groups makes outstanding imaging performance possible.
