Excerpt: When I took the plunge and bought my OM-D E-M10 I decided to get this lens because I wanted better IQ than a kit zoom. I was debating between the 25mm and the 17mm and decided on this lens. It was a compromise between a wide angle and a so called normal lens. I don't regret my decision at all. It is sharp and contrasty. The colors pop and the large maximum aperture can get some nice bokeh effects even with the mft size sensor.
Excerpt: This is a very nice fast prime lens. On a BMPCC, it's about a 50mm equivalent, which is great for a natural field of view and perspective. It seems to be very sharp, and can produce some nice bokeh. The construction seems very durable. It's not a pancake lens, but it's also not too big or heavy either.
Pros: Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
Summary: Performing very well. I've been using for about a month with my OMD-EM5. I find it works excellently in low light, I have been using it as an all purpose lens, everything from landscapes to street photography and portraits. I have been very satisfied with the results.
Last superb pictures are from the Northern Lights - I am not a profi photographer so I am extremely happy with the lenses

Summary: I will buy it any time again. Last superb pictures are from the Northern Lights - I am not a profi photographer so I am extremely happy with the lenses. Plus, super fast delivery from South Korea to Europe in Germany.
Excerpt: I'm brand new to this format. Less than a week into owning an Olympus OM-D EM-1, after many happy years with a Canon 7D and primes.I knew I needed a daily lens. Something that would live on the camera, be my walk about, and be flexible enough when I needed something a bit wider than the 45mm I already owned - and this was my choice.And I love it : )For comparison, I used to carry a 28mm f/1.8 Canon prime on my 7D - so the focal lengths are roughly the same.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction
