Pros: Lightness, ease of use, sharpness, compactness, aperture, fast autofocus.

Cons: I have not found

Opinion: The objective in question is one of the inseparable companions of my EM10ii. Both form a light and performing system. I say this because the pairing allowed me to take pictures that otherwise I would never have realized. The aperture 1.8 with Iso 1600 allows you to make great shots. So the 17mm is a great travel companion, great for the street, for portraits and for generalistic use. Definitely a must have

Pros: Very small, all in metal beautiful to the touch, colors.

Cons: I do not find except the insertion of the cap with hood not the brand mounted

Opinion: After having tested for well for three months the lens mounted on the machine body WCO E10 MKIII I no longer removed, you can do everything from street to portrait, sharp already open, blurred pleasant, gives the maximum even on long exposures to F11-13. The color rendition is mind-blowing, it suffers from flare, it accentuates with added UV filter. I removed it immediately, the lens hood as already suggested on the net is a few coffees, once mounted it becomes difficult to use the cap. Very comfortable the ring to switch to MF is easily operated with one hand. I used it very often with the technique of snap-focus with much satisfaction and fun.

Pros: Size, beautiful colors, aesthetically very nice

Cons: AF/MF gearbox system, the cap is very uncomfortable

Opinion: Very nice lens, aesthetically it's a gem. The click of the ring to switch to manual focus is potentially very nice but you can not switch with one hand and it is a real pity. With the regulation of manual fire, I would have liked a mechanical end stroke. The cap provided is very uncomfortable, it would be nice if there was an automatic stopper, since it is a lens with a rather versatile focal that allows you to do a bit of everything.

Pros: Engraved, lightweight, small, discreet, luminous.

Cons: Maybe it was pure sealed and with the switch to manual focus on the ring... but there is the F 1.2, just pay it.

Opinion: I took it with a certain indecision having already the 12-40 but I do not regret it and often in the bag travel together. In low light situations it makes a difference, even when you want reduced depth of field as in situations where you want to be light and discreet. In many cases I would see it well coupled to 45mm f 1.8.

Pros: versatility, depth of field, size

Cons: No lens hood

Opinion: Impressions after two weeks of use, comparing with another fixed lens already in my possession: Panasonic 25 mm f 1.7. I add my humble opinion precisely because these days I'm comparing two optics on which you can find yourself indecisive to buy, although clearly different, a 35 mm and a 50 mm equivalent, but both quite handyman to create doubts about choosing When you search for the practicality of a fixed lens always leave mounted. So I find the Panasonic 25 mm premium optics for brightness, sharpness and colors, definitely superior to Zuiko 17, but sometimes too long to use street, in the sense that in tight spaces and/or crowded I can't back away enough to compose the picture. This prompted me to buy the zuiko 17 mm 1.8, which loses much comparison to brightness and contrast (even disappointing in bright environments, where for clarity prevails only slightly on the "poor" 14 42 EZ from kit), but regaining a lot of ground, and won, in confined spaces (obvious) and in greater depth of field at constant aperture, which allows me to set wider apertures. Also, having the distance scale, allows me to experiment successfully Hyperfocal technique, whereby at f 5.6 I have everything in focus from 3 meters.
