View Full Version : Olympus 17mm Pancake - too tight?

One of the lenses that I bought for my OM-D is the Zuiko 17mm f/2.8 Pancake. Although AF is a tad slower than the other lenses, it works quite well. The only thing that bothers me is that it is rather tight at the bayonet mount, both while fitting and removing. Has anyone else noticed this?

I've always thought that this is a sign of high quality construction (for both lens and camera mounts).

Tight is good.

OK, thanks. It also may be the fact that being so narrow, the 17mm lens is a bit more awkward to grasp and fit into the mount, making it feel tighter than longer lenses.

The 45mm is tighter than my other lenses.
