Lens in Black: Olympus 17mm f1.8 on the GF1

The black version of the Olympus 17mm f1.8 lens are finally hitting the street. They are not available as a seperate purchase yet but the first E-P5 kits that bundle this dark horse started delivering this weekend. I picked one up to see how it would look and perform on the old GF1.

My love for the GF1 has been recently reinvigorated as my frustration with poor body controls on rangefinder style micro four-thirds cameras continues. None have done it better than the GF1, which will be the subject of my next post.

For now, enjoy the pictures of this new lens before I it finds a new home…

Black Olympus 17mm f1.8 is a sharp looking lens
