Olympus 17mm f/2.8 Pancake Lens Samples

First published on: Wednesday, 17 June 2009

This page is a collection of photo samples taken with the Olympus M.ZUIKO 17mm f/2.8mm Micro 4/3 Pancake Lens, plus related image galleries, user pictures and other examples that I’ve come across in forums, online communities, blogs and related websites.

This should help in determining if the image quality of the 17/2.8 pancake meets your expectations.

Bear in mind that the majority of these photos are re-sized, and may have gone through post-processing, retouching or other edits. I just thought that it would be interesting to see, at a glance, what Olympus 17mm owners and users are shooting with their lens.

Full-sized images, where available, will assist with judging the image quality.

The Micro Four Thirds 17mm f/2.8 lens was introduced together with the Olympus Pen E-P1 12.3MP Micro Four Thirds Electronic Viewfinder Interchangeable-Lens Digital Camera.
