If you look closely at the video opposite, you might just spot the new all-metal 17mm f/1.8 MFT lens in use on the London Underground shoot!
A length of 17mm turns into a 34mm 35mm equivalent when coupled with the Four Thirds sensor, offering an f/1.8 aperture for landscapes, portraits and street shooting – especially in low light. It also offers MSC (movie and stills compatible) autofocus for silent, speedy focusing during video capture, while a snap ring on the barrel allows you to switch to manual focusing with a flick of the wrist. It also has the wonderful Snapshot Focus meter on the lens barrel itself, which allows you to set the focus distance ahead of time – perfect for street photography.
