In late October, Olympus announced the new 17mm and 45mm f/1.2 PRO lenses for Micro Four Thirds. We've had some hands-on time with the new fast prime lenses and have now published a variety of gallery images for each of the primes.

While full hands-on reports for each lens will be published soon, we wanted to give our readers a chance to peruse our shots and see for themselves how good these new Micro Four Thirds prime lenses are in real-world situations, including low-light shooting and portraiture scenarios.

Stay tuned to Imaging Resource for more real-world shots with these new prime lenses as we continue to test them out in Charleston and as we gather our thoughts regarding overall performance, but in the meantime, be sure to check out our Olympus 17mm f/1.2 and 45mm f.1.2 galleries. These galleries will be updated further, so stay tuned, but there should be plenty here to get a good sense of the performance of these new fast primes.
