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.
Lens hood included with purchase (a $46.99 value).

Customer Reviews of the M.Zuiko 25mm f1.8

The new 25mm f1.8 Lens is fantastic IMHO
Don't wait that long to purchase this lens.
This review is based on print enlargements from the lens, not pixel peeping. I have had produced 16x20 enlargements from this lens.
Contrast is nicely predominate. Sharpness is very good even at f1.8. Bokeh is very good, and pleasant blown up, looks natural.
Compared to the other brand f1.4 lens, worth every penny even though 2/3 stop less light. I'll be using this lens more after seeing stunning results.
I also have a 30mm lens for MFT. This lens takes pictures like a nifty fifty on a 35mm full frame camera. 30mm is a little tight. As far as I am concerned this lens is just right if you are looking for that field of view.
There are comparison review sites out there comparing the 2 lens leaders, and pretty much same lens, with a premium for 2/3 of a stop. This wins the prize for more affordability.
The pictures pop from this lens, just like the 45mm f1.8. I am fairly sure someone might just share this opinion.
