Summary: This lens is one of the best deals in mirrorless photography! I own the 25mm, 45mm and 75mm olympus lenses as well as the 14mm panasonic and after a few months I can say the 25mm is my go to lens. Even with the other lenses I own I find I use the 25mm a lot for doing portraits as it is so sharp wide open it's not funny! This lens also handles flaring so well that I have almost found it impossible to make it flare!
Summary: Really like this lens. I have the Panasonic 14mm f2.5 and the Olympus 45mm f1.8 on my Oly EPL-5, and this fits in between those two lenses perfectly. Great image quality and blazingly fast focus.
this year the pictures were fabulous and the ability to get a narrow depth of field lead lead to some awesome portraits of famil

Summary: Took out E-M10 from outstanding to extraordinary!! We have a parade of lights every year and trying to capture the moments in years past had lead to blur or grainy results, this year the pictures were fabulous and the ability to get a narrow depth of field lead lead to some awesome portraits of family and friends.
Summary: Now that I own this lens I use it more than any other; and I have 4 other MFT lenses. My next fastest lens is f3.5 so being able to step down to f1.8 is a big improvement. The only time this lens is not useful is in tight spots when you need something wider. The construction is excellent and it feels good in the hand. Yes it's a little tight on the camera but this is due to the metal lens mount, it will loosen up a bit with time.
