Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm f/2.8 Pancake Review

PhotoZone reviews the Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm f/2.8 Pancake lens.

"The Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm f/2.8 is a lovely little lens but unfortunately it does disappoint regarding its optical capabilities. You expect a top notch performance from a prime lens but the Zuiko isn't overly sharp neither at max. aperture nor stopped down - the center quality is perfectly fine but the borders and corners are too soft in general. In principal the lens produces a hefty amount of barrel distortion."
