The new Olympus M.ZUIKO Digital ED 17mm f/1.2 PRO lens is a very fast moderate wide-angle prime which provides an equivalent focal length of 35mm in 35mm full-frame terms. Aimed at keen enthusiasts and professionals, this new lens has a complex construction that is comprised of 15 elements in 11 groups. The autofocus system is designed to be quick and precise, while there are 9 rounded aperture blades for more effective bokeh effects, including something that Olympus refer to as “feathered bokeh” when shooting wide-open at f/1.2. The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 17mm f/1.2 PRO lens is also dustproof, freezeproof and waterproof, making it appealing for those working with similarly weatherproof cameras such as the OM-D E-M1 Mark II. The Olympus M.ZUIKO Digital ED 17mm f/1.2 PRO retails for £1199 / $1199 in the UK and US respectively.
