About the Olympus M. Zuiko 17mm F/1.8
This superbly built, bright M. Zuiko lens from Olympus probably won't come off your camera very often once you've chosen it from your kit bag. The incredibly useful 34mm effective focal length, paired with a light-gathering f/1.8 aperture, will have you oohing and ahhing over the results from your landscapes, group shots, and low-lit interior candids — in a way that no common kit zoom lens can. Shots will be crisp and clear from edge to edge, and the 7-bladed circular aperture will create creamy smooth backgrounds for your foreground subjects when the aperture is wide open. When you're looking to give your low-light photography that extra "kick," this will be a lens you'll return to over and over again.
