Zuiko Digital 25mm f2.8 is a thin, lightweight single-focus standard pancake-type lens. The lens has an overall length of 23.5 mm. When combined with E-410 or E-420, the total length including the camera body and lens is only 76.5 mm. The result is an easy-to-store, easy-to-carry camera system with go-anywhere portability.
With a focal distance equivalent to 50 mm on a 35 mm film camera lens, this standard pancake-type lens provides an image angle very close to that of the naked eye. The result is a near-natural visual field that makes this an ideal standard lens for daily use, whether for simple snapshots or for more sophisticated portrait and landscape shooting.
Directly compatible with E-System cameras. Compatible with Micro Four Thirds digital cameras (PEN\OM-D) through use of the MMF-2 or MMF-3 (Four Thirds Lens Adapter to Micro Four Thirds Lens Adapter). The MMF-3 is dust and splash proof for use with that type of lens on a dust and splash proof body. Note, AF performance may diminish as compared to being on an E-System body.

Customer Reviews of the Zuiko Lens 25mm f2.8

Great image quality and a return to yesterday
Have been playing with my new 25mm partnered with an OM-D E-M5 for a few weeks now. Enjoying the camera much more this way than with the kit 12-50mm originally purchased. That's a good lens but its a bit obtrusive. With the adapter and 25mm I have to think on my feet to frame each shot but people hardly notice so, consequently, I'm having the kind of fun I remember having with my first SLR waaay back in 1978. Image quality is great.
Now when are we going to see a micro 4/3 25mm. That would be AWESOME.

A good lens
The lens is good. It is presice and very sharp at middle distances, it is prone to some CA at harsh transitions, it has superb color reproduction, it looks nice, making clients get surprised at its small size. I wish it had less distortion and were a little faster. I wish it were sharper at infinity? though the sgarpness is still OK. It has a retro rendition when shooting macro. Yes, it is capable!

The Zuiko lens 25mm 2.8 is a small piece of very good workmanship and high quality optics.
The small 25mm 2.8 attached to an Olympus body becomes a fine instrument designed within the purpose of Olympus to combine best-engineered, refined aesthetics and excellent performance.
Those who appreciate the design of Olympus consider this a classic design, both for its focal length equivalent to 50mm and for its luminosity 2.8.
