Olympus V311060BU000 25mm f1.8 Interchangeable Lens
The M.Zuiko 25mm f1.8 is your ideal ideal all-around lens for shooting stunning images both day and night. With a 25mm focal length and 47 degree angle of view, this lens sits right between wide and telephoto design. Its fast f1.8 circular aperture delivers beautifully soft defocused backgrounds, perfect for portraits. It also delivers superb detail even when lighting is less than optimal, which means you can skip the flash in many low-light situations.
Adapted from multilayer film deposition technology used in Olympus' industry-leading line of precision microscopes, the Zuiko Extra-Low Reflective Optical Coating practically eliminates ghosts and flares caused by in-frame light sources. This feature in invaluable when shooting into the sun or other back-lit situations.
Movie-Still Compatible (MSC)
The linear drive motor found in the M.Zuiko Digital 25mm f1.8 is Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) and provides fast, nearly silent focusing and aperture performance; a must-have for any videographer.
Included Lens Hood
The included lens hood will protect your images from ghosting and flare.
Serious Hand-Held Performance
Paired with the serious in-body image stabilization of the Olympus OM-D and PEN series of cameras, this extremely bright f1.8 lens allows you to shoot longer hand-held exposures without a tripod.

With a 25mm focal length and 47 degree angle of view, this lens sits right between wide and telephoto designs, making it a great choice as an all-around lens for your photography. A fast f1.8 circular aperture delivers beautifully soft defocused backgrounds for impressive portraits or when subject emphasis is the desired photographic effect. An inner focusing mechanism assures fast and accurate auto-focusing, and because it is an MSC design, it offers nearly silent focusing operation – a great feature when shooting HD movies.

When focusing it does do one thing that kind of drives me crazy: every time, it starts at infinity and then focuses closer until it gets to the right focus. Push the focus button again, it does it again. Zip, zip, zip, every time. Most of the time it all happens so fast that you barely notice, and even doing this little jig, it's faster than the 20mm. But it's a little annoying.
Careful with the silver version — the lens itself is fine but I find the provided silver lens hood too plastic-looking; wish I had bought the black one.
Paired with my OMD5.2, this lens and camera combination is certainly infringing on compact camera territory, the total weight being about 600grams.
This 25mm should give you the ability to take pictures of almost everything and everyone you encounter. If you need sports shooting, or other situations that require reach, then the 40-150 zoom can get you there for $100. With those two lenses you cover almost all situations.
Using a prime is a little odd if you're not used to zooming with your body and can be limiting in public places where you might not have access to get the shot you want. On the flip side this can also make primes more fun and rewarding and is a good way to not get too reliant on zoom.
I use this on Panasonic bodies and have not had any issues yet.
