this little guy is awesome….. small, autofocus is fast with complete silence, it bites even at f1.8, comes with a lenshood … wow, a lot of pros.. cons are: a little bit overpriced … 249 or 299 euros will be a better pricing imho. Or keep the current price BUT add weatherproof please ! out of focus rendering is a little in the harsh side but still good.. i'm looking at you 25mm PRO 1.2 ;) that's all.… i'm more confortable with a 25mm rather than a 17mm... i use it on an OMD EM10mK2 and they ...

The little plastic phantastic for m43. Since I am kind of lazy most of the times I keep my super zoom on my cam. But whenever I slap on the 25mm, I bring home some extraordinary images. No. Wait. Not always. But, at least, the images have a very high level of sharpness and - dare I say - micro contrast. Pictures really bite on my 4k 24" screen. At f/1.8, one can also have some limited subject separation, which works fine for close up portraits. The samples below are SOOC images. Here is one ...

Fresh from the Olympus Brand Store Midvalley. I finally have the 3 out of 4 Olympus Premium Primes that I set to complete. I started with regular zooms. But inspired by the Images that Robing Wong constantly churns out from his 45mm 1.8. I got the 45mm 3 years ago. Since then I never looked back and set my eyes on getting Primes. I took a move I should have done long time ago. I got my self the 25mm 1.8. It is the sweet spot I am missing for Food Photos. Does not have the distortion that the ...

Wow. I originally was going to get the 45mm f1.8 from Olympus but when I set my kit lens (Panasonic 14-42mm) to the 25mm mode I found that I could use that as a comprise to getting the 17mm f1.8 and I that I would probably use it more than the 45mm f1.8. Well... this lens is on my Panasonic G3 most of the time. These would be a very few of the edited and barely edited photographs that I have taken in the last 2 weeks with this lens. Speed, size, lens-hood, focus speed.   Crispness...  and more. ...

Finally I've got my Zuiko m4/3 25mm f/1.8 lens, in Italy as usual  all Olympus and Zuiko products arrive a little bit later than all the other European countries. I owned already the m4/3 17mm f/1.8 and was very happy with it. I'm a street photographer and the 35 mm equivalent is the best lens for reportages. Now I'm owning the 25mm too equivalent to 50mm on 35mm slr and let me say that I'm getting addicted! I'm not a technical expert, I judge the quality of the lens only the image taken. By ...

I own the 25 mm just two weeks now, but I'm already convinced! But I have to tell you that I'm not a professional photographer or image expert. Just before my trip to The Gambia I could manage it to get one silver version in my hands. Silver makes the better images, right? And it fits well and looks great on my PEN E-P5. The lens iis -in my opinion- extremely fast with focusing and I had not much shots out of focus. It was really a joy to have it on my camera. Razor sharp and although it ...

I have had the Olympus 25mm f1.8 lens for a few days now, and I am very happy with it. Selected photos I have taken with the 25mm f1.8 are here (nothing special, just everyday scenes). My short review of the lens, based on a few days of usage: BUILD The lens has a plastic body with a metal lens mount, and feels solid. The focus-by-wire focus ring is about as wide as a finger and feels nicely damped. Olympus includes a bayonet style plastic lens hood with the 25mm f1.8. SHARPNESS The 25mm f1.8 ...
