Excerpt: This is a nice addition to your m4/3 kit, especially if you are accustomed to the 50mm "normal" lens in 35mm format, for all its virtues and faults. Fast, quiet, accurate AF. Sharp throughout the frame, especially when stopped down a bit, but still reasonably sharp wide open.
Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus
Excerpt: Bought this over the Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 for the smaller size and better sharpness across the frame. The lens stay on my E-M5 II most of the time. It is sharp at all apertures. Only problem I have is in a quite room or when recording I can hear the autofocus motor.
Excerpt: First impressions are really good! I haven't had a chance to give it a test run; I have used it, just not enough. It is a sharp lens, and well made, But there is something that nags at me, and I almost feel not worth complaining about,- and not a issue where I would abandon Olympus for another...
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: This is always attached to my E-M1...I shoot with this the most and I love the results I get with it The focus on it is snappy fast...I had the panasonic 20mm and that was super slow compared to this 25mm
Pros: Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh

Pros: Consistent Output, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I bought this 25mm to use as my primary street photography, take anywhere lens. I was using the 17mm 1.8 but I prefer less of a wide angle perspective and more of an up-close view. This lens gives me that and has great sharpness, bokeh, is light, small and quick to focus.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: I purchased this lens to use with my Olympus OMD10. When I bought the camera for travel photography, it came with the 14-42 kit lens and I also got the 40-150mm. I added the 25mm to have the capability of shooting in lower light while having a focal length that works quite well for street shots.
Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Excerpt: Well built even though it is made of plastic rather than metal. Unlike the kit lenses that have plastic mounts, this guy has a metal one. It is very small and light weight. It has an extra tight fit to the body and talk about sharp..
Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Smooth manual focus
