The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 25mm 1:1.8 (50mm*) lens offers exceptional optical performance together with beautiful bokeh at open apertures and impressive close-focussing capability. This well-built lens sporting compact dimensions, features similar high-end resolution and shallow depth of field characteristics of the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 45mm 1:1.8 lens. The ultra-bright 1:1.8 aperture of this single focal length lens gives you full control of depth of field while enabling outstanding low-light photography without the need for a tripod. This is further accentuated by Olympus’ proprietary in-body image stabilisation technology which counteracts camera shake, resulting in sharp images shot hand-held at long shutter speeds. This Micro Four Thirds lens also boasts near-silent shooting of both still images and movies. Ideal for a wide range of photography, this lens appeals to anyone seeking ultimate image quality and the increased creative freedom of a fast aperture lens, particularly for available light photography. This standard focal length prime lens reproduces a field of view similar to that of the human eye, for perfectly balanced proportions. Available in black or silver to compliment your camera’s finish.

Get exceptional imaging performance in a compact size
The M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 25mm 1:1.8 packs the high performance of a bigger lens into a sleek, compact design. This high-grade lens has an impressively high refractive index, ensuring exceptional spherical aberration correction capability. Despite the lens's compact design, outstanding resolving power offers stunning image quality with high contrast and high precision across the whole image area from the open aperture of 1:1.8.
With fast 1:1.8 aperture for attractive bokeh and low light excellence
The fast aperture of the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 25mm 1:1.8 offers you total control of depth of field and is an outstanding lens to create images with beautiful bokeh. Whatever subjects you shoot, discover what the depth of field control of this lens can do for your photography.
We’ve all experienced how difficult it is to take blur-free pictures when shooting under dimly-lit conditions without a tripod and flash. With the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 25mm 1:1.8, however, you can enjoy extended low-light shooting capabilities thanks to the fast 1:1.8 aperture coupled with Olympus’ in-body IS systems for tack-sharp images with minimal camera shake at low shutter speeds . Capture the atmosphere of available low-light conditions with all the freedom and creativity of hand-held shooting. Travel light without the burden of a tripod and shoot freely.
Close-up performance and autofocus
This lens has been designed to get you even closer to the action: the minimum focus distance is just 25cm. By using the macro converter MCON-P02 you can shoot a mere 17cm from your subject - ideal for still-life and close-up photography. The MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) mechanism inside the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 25mm 1:1.8 is the result of optical design technology developed to enable fast, quiet AF. Using a high-precision metallic shaft and feed screw instead of a gear, this mechanism ensures virtually silent operation and a rapid, smooth and above all highly accurate autofocus, giving you stress-free shooting without the “whirr” of lens mechanics for improved sound quality when shooting HD movies. Photographing still images is quiet too, enabling you to get closer to the action without disturbing your subject.
ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating for low-reflectivity
The lens surfaces of the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 25mm 1:1.8 are coated with Olympus's ZERO coating, which cuts the reflectance of wavelengths between 450 and 650 nm by 50%. This ensures clear imaging performance even under challenging conditions, such as shooting against the light. The ZERO coating is a result of optical control technology that Olympus originally developed for microscopes. As well as achieving clear images, this technology also helps prevent scratches and degradation to the lens due to the enhanced strength and durability made possible by vacuum deposition.
Stylish housing with sophisticated textured metallic finish
This lens looks and feels as good as it performs optically. The quality metallic outer finish provides a comfortable, pleasing texture and the feeling of long-lasting solidity and a classic look appropriate for a true precision instrument.

Its 25mm focal length makes it also an ideal walkabout general purpose lens as well so you are guaranteed to get good shots in most situations and its max 1.8 aperture allows for taking pics with really nice bokeh. The build of the lens is also great as it is solid and well constructed and it looks great with the silver metallic finish.
So if you own a MFT camera and are looking for a standard prime lens which is reasonably priced then this is definitely one to consider.
This focal length provides an angle of view approximating to the human eye and therefore gives images with a natural feeling of perspective. It is therefore an excellent general purpose lens for many purposes, from taking reference shots for painters to naturalistic townscapes or landscapes in their own right. The wide maximum aperture can be used for both low light and focus seperation. It can be used for some portraiture, but the perspective provided by its 45mm twin is more flattering to the subject.
While it doesn't have built in image stabilisation, the focal length is such that this will not matter for the majority of the photos taken with it.
For those who havn't read the reviews, it provides crisp, sharp images that should satisfy most users.
The lens goes nicely with both my 'Pens', Panny G5 and OMD M5, both cosmetically and balance and is likely to be a fairly permanent fixture on a body.
It won't make you a better photographer or transform your life, but it gives many of us a lens that we will use a lot and help us produce the best that our individual skills will allow.
It's really tiny, but feels solid and very well made, with a truly silky focus ring. For once (thank you Olympus) it comes with a bayonet fit plastic lens hood. You have to take the trim ring off the front of the lens though. Will I ever find that again?
Equivalent to 50mm in 35mm terms, this is what used to be called a 'standard' lens. It's a lens that is neither wide angle nor telephoto, and gives what some people describe as a 'natural' angle of view. Well, maybe. You are aware that the view you get is very much like the view you see with your eyes. In that sense, it's suitable for most general scenes, but you have to be more creative to make shots interesting as a result.
I recently used just this lens at a classic car show, and it was surprisingly effective. Set to f/4 it gave me just a mild sense of isolation for each car, yet kept most of the car adequately in focus. Details on the cars were pin sharp and crystal clear.
It's starting to sound like a cliché with Olympus primes, but I'll say it anyway: this is very sharp, even at f1.8 and renders backgrounds beautifully (that means great bokeh if that means anything to you). And it focuses instantly (less instantly in video mode on my E-M10) and virtually silently.
It would be news if any of those things weren't the case. You can almost buy these little lenses without reading the reviews. You expect them to be great, and they are.
So what else can I say? What about close focusing? It's not bad, about 25cm from the sensor (so rather less from the end of the lens), so it's okay for flowers but not for proper close-ups.Read more ›
