From now until 15 September 2013 Olympus UK are offering a bonus M.ZUIKO 17mm 1:2.8 Pancake lens* with the purchase of any PEN E-PL5 or E-PM2 body or kit from authorised stockists.
The offer will be promoted throughout the Olympus dealer network, both in-store and online, with artwork provided by Olympus user and street photographer Adam Thirtle. His shot entitled "CCTV" perfectly illustrates the off-the-cuff style achievable with the pancake lens and an eye for a photo opportunity.
The M.ZUIKO 17mm 1:2.8 lens boosts the compactness of PEN cameras to the limit with a mere 22mm in length and 71g in weight. The circular aperture diaphragm with 5 blades enables natural and smooth defocusing. This wide-angle pancake lens with its ultra compact design is ideal for daily snapshots and street photography, as well as an invaluable travel companion.
*lens available via redemption.
