M.Zuiko 25mm f1.8 at a Glance

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 – even when the subject is moving.

IS WHAT YOU GET

    The 25mm focal length of this lens reflects the way you see the world: natural, straightforward and undistorted. Its angle of view is closest to the human visual field, so what you see with your eyes matches the perspective of the images you capture. This makes the 25mm f1.8 a perfect fit for “snap shot” photography, as you can easily take images as you see them without thinking about the composition of the photograph.

  • BUILT FOR BEAUTIFUL BOKEH

    Photographers who shoot a lot of portraits and still-lifes are always seeking good bokeh. You may not know it by this term, which comes from the Japanese word for “blur” or “haze,” but you’ve no doubt admired photos where the subject is in focus while the background is seriously blurred. Lenses with relatively shallow depth of field – like the 25mm – are especially well suited to capture the combination of tack-sharp subject and beautifully soft, defocused background that exemplifies bokeh.

  • ALL-AROUND PORTABILITY

    Adding a lens like the 25mm f1.8 to your kit is a great idea if you’re interested in taking beautiful images of your family and friends, or even your food when you’re out to eat! In fact, this lens is a terrific walking-around for everyday photography lens – it’s compact, lightweight and flexible enough to freeze action one minute and capture candid portraits the next. It’s an excellent choice for the photographer who’s looking to expand his or her creative options.

  • SHHHHH, AMAZING 
PHOTOGRAPHY IN PROGRESS

    The inclusion of the Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) mechanism makes AF operations completely silent. In combination with the OM-D's Silent Mode (electronic shutter), you can photograph skittish nature subjects as well as indoor events that require complete silence like musical performances. The size and weight of the OM-D system and these silent features open up a whole new world of shooting possibilities!

Awesome prime for everyday use and indoors in low-light
This is an outstanding, compact, sharp lens that provides a normal, 50mm-equivalent field of view. I'm very satisfied with it!

Super-Worthy Entry in the Olympus Stable
I bought this a few months ago because I was sick and tired of slow m.zuiko lenses, with good zoom lens capabilities but lacking the ability to throw a background out of focus and to work freely in low light. In effect I was trying to get a fast prime that would do much the same job as my very old LEICA Summicron 50mm does on an M9-P. Despite the 30+ year difference in technology, I was still willing to pay a fair price in sharpness. But here's the great part: except in the most minor ways, I didn't have to! The 25 mm m.Zuiko is a lens very much in the spirit of my Summicron 50. It's even a little bit faster. Lest you think that the half stop is irrelevant, rest assured that it is not. The depth of field of a 25mm lens is the same regardless of format size if you enlarge the image by the same factor (this is just simple physics)! So if you want visible bokeh even the half stop helps. Being a pedantic old professor, if you enlarge the 50mm and 25mm images to the same print size, the DOF is the same at the given f/stop from both, but the smaller sensor size means it takes a skilled designer to get the same apparent sharpness on both prints. Rest assured: modern optical technology, computer processing in camera, and the skills of the Olympus designers are up to the task. Used on my E-M5 MkII, this is a worthy companion to the Summicron on the M-9P. It is a great lens to work with, sharp, contrasty, and with a wide enough aperture to let you shoot in poor light, under dark skies, and indoors. The 50mm lens and its focal length equivalents on other frame sizes has been THE standard lens for a dam' good reason, and the Oly 25mm is a great fit to my photography. Knowing what I do now I would suggest that anybody just beginning with the Oly micro- 4/3 system with one of the premium bodies should skip the kit zooms and go straight to the 25mm m.Zuiko f/1.8! A fault if any? Yes. It would have been nice to have it weather sealed.

Great all purpose lens
I've come to love a fast prime, and this 25mm is the perfect all-around focal length. A lense like this can almost make you forget about zoom lenses. It's fast aperture makes it very useful and responsive in low light, It can do decent portraits, but I'd prefer a longer focal length for that. The f/1.8 has allowed me to get some really good photos on many of the Disney "dark rides", where flash is prohibited. It's simply a great walk around lens, I enjoy it immensely.
