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.
Top Customer Reviews
-Sharp wide open throughout most of the frame with both near and far targets. Overall sharper than the Panasonic Leica 25mm f/1.4 (which I will compare to on several points below) when you consider edge performance.
-Less color fringing than the Panasonic even when both are shot on a Panasonic body (I tested both on my GX7 as well as E-M1)
-Pleasing/smooth bokeh rendering
-Fast autofocus (AF), comparable to the Panasonic
-Good AF performance even in very low light
-Much closer minimum minimum focus distance than Panasonic
-Smaller and lighter than Panasonic (balances better on the smallest MFT bodies) - much smaller if you include the dedicated hoods (finally Olympus includes a hood)
-Has solid build, despite being plastic and light. The "decorative cap" is more snug, less inclined to fall off as compared to the Olympus 45mm lens

For me, the Olympus 25mm f/1.8 is a definite keeper. A no-brainer. However, I will also be keeping the Panasonic lens for it's extra 2/3 stop of speed, more shallow DOF capabilty, and unique rendering character. Both are wonderful choices.
