Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 17mm f/1.2 Pro Lens


The Olympus 17mm f/1.2 Pro Lens is a high-end prime lens designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. The lens features a fast maximum aperture of f/1.2, which allows for excellent low-light performance and shallow depth of field effects.

The 17mm focal length is equivalent to a 34mm lens on a full-frame camera, making it a versatile choice for a wide range of photographic applications, from landscape and architecture photography to street and documentary photography.

The Olympus 17mm f/1.2 Pro Lens is constructed from high-quality materials, including metal and weather-sealed components, to ensure durability and protection against the elements. The lens also features advanced optical technology, including 15 elements in 11 groups, including ED, E-HR, and aspherical elements, to minimize chromatic aberration, distortion, and other aberrations.

Other features of the Olympus 17mm f/1.2 Pro Lens include a fast, accurate autofocus system, a manual focus clutch mechanism, and customizable function buttons. Additionally, the lens has a close focusing distance of 20cm, which allows for creative close-up photography.

Overall, the Olympus 17mm f/1.2 Pro Lens is an excellent choice for Micro Four Thirds photographers who demand high performance, image quality, and versatility from their lenses. Its fast aperture, robust construction, and advanced optical technology make it a top choice for a wide range of photographic applications.

The M.Zuiko Digital ED 17mm F1.2 PRO delivers beautiful feathered bokeh that blends the image from focused sections to out-of-focus sections and provides a smooth impression to the defocused background, providing more depth to the image by making the subject stand out further.

Beautiful feathered bokeh was achieved thanks to an ultra-high precision aberration measurement instrument developed incorporating high-precision measurement technologies used in advanced microscope development. This measurement instrument was used in research stages to measure the characteristics of historically acclaimed lenses, which would become the base for newly developed lenses.

In development stages, the instrument was used to create a lens design that optimizes the level of aberrations, while virtually eliminating all unwanted aberrations.

The M.Zuiko Digital ED 17mm F1.2 PRO adopts a design which intentionally guides light beams passing on the outside edges of the lens to form an image in the foreground, while gradually tilting the lens as the spherical aberration moves towards the outside edge. Intentionally keeping spherical aberrations results in beautiful feathered bokeh.

This lens employs 6 ED lens elements, the most of any M.Zuiko lens, including the newly developed ED-DSA lens, which incorporates the features of both ED (Extra-low Dispersion) and DSA (Dual Super Aspherical) lenses. This construction effectively compensates for unfocused colour bleeding (axial chromatic aberration) which is a common problem on large-diameter lenses, and colour bleeding (magnification chromatic aberration) at the image periphery.

It also contributes to creating beautiful feathered bokeh, and achieving superb optical performance which accurately represents points as points even at the widest aperture setting.

The ED-DSA lens which uses ED glass on a DSA lens has been successfully mass-produced for the first time ever by OM Digital Solutions corp. This lens delivers the excellent chromatic aberration correction abilities of the ED lens and the spherical aberration, comatic aberration, and astigmatism correction abilities of the DSA lens in a single lens.

Incorporating the ED-DSA lens significantly reduces the number of lens elements, resulting in a shorter overall length of the lens body while providing higher performance.

This lens has excellent close-up shooting abilities with a closest focusing distance of 20 cm, and shooting magnification of 0.15x (35mm equivalent: 0.3x). You can get closer to subjects to emphasize background bokeh.

Coating technology is employed which coats the lens surface with a layer of nanoscale size particles that have air in the centre, resulting in a coating with a similar refractive index as air and reduced surface reflection. Ghosts and flaring are significantly reduced for sharp, clear image quality.

Despite being a large diameter F1.2 lens, a lightweight focusing unit is made possible via the MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) mechanism. A screw drive mechanism is used as the core drive system of the MSC mechanism, and a stepping motor is used as the drive motor.

On-chip Phase Detection AF used on the OM-D E-M1 Mark II has no light flux limitations, making all-cross AF possible even when a large-diameter F1.2 lens is attached. This provides coverage for the all focusing points to the edges of the image for high-precision focusing.

This large-diameter, maximum aperture F1.2 lens is compact and lightweight. It is approximately 390 g, and when paired with the OM-D E-M1 Mark II it creates an amazingly compact lightweight system at only approximately 964 g.

Controls are designed to meet the demands of pros, including a focus ring which provides for comfortable focusing, and an L-Fn button which can be operated as you keep your eye to the viewfinder.

This Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 17mm f/1.2 Pro Lens comes with a full warranty in Australia.
