    Olympus has just announced a new addition for the Micro Four Thirds system, the M.ZUIKO Digital 17mm f/1.8 lens. This lens offers a 35mm equivalent focal length of 34mm, giving it a slighter wider-than-normal angle of view that is ideal for general everyday use. The lens differs from the existing M.ZUIKO Digital 17mm f/2.8 lens with its two-stop faster f/1.8 maximum aperture and the inclusion of MSC lens technology. The large f/1.8 aperture enables low-light shooting as well as greater control over your focus plane for selective focus or shallow depth-of-field techniques. This lens also features a snap ring that, when extended, reveals a manual-focus distance and depth-of-field scale that perfectly suits video work, fast-paced shooting, or other situations that benefit from zone or hyperfocal distance focusing.
