Great lens

This is a good lens to always have on your camera. It makes me pay attention to how I compose my photo and not just zoom in and out.

Excellent

By

from Chevy Chase, MD  -  Photo Enthusiast

* Excellent performer * Works great on my E-P3 with Panasonic adapter. My first words after the first shots with this lens were:" wow... this is really, really good" After using it for a while my opinion is "yeap... this is really, really good" Excellent resolution, contrast, and colors; also, it's small, and light; on top of that, works great on the E-P3 (and I guess the same applies to the E-M5 and E-P5). Fantastic lens, great price. Photographers will appreciate this lens. Consider the Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 if you are a bokeh "addict" -or really need the extra speed. Otherwise, I see no reason to pay more. This lens is great.

A good lens for the price

By

from New Jersey Shore  -  Pro Photographer

A good lens for our needs(close up work).Suposedly it is as near to the naked eye,but at a fixed 2.8 apearture. We wonder if thats true!Beware, do not buy the chaeper models as the are for the older camaras and they will not fit!The olympus lens hood is a joke.We cannot see any use for it. All in all,a nice well made lens for the price & might even be good for general use too!

Useful ultra-compact Olympus prime

By

from Seattle  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Primes for DSLRs are getting rare as hen's teeth. While this Olympus normal lens is not as fast as the Sigma 30mm f/1.4 or as sharp and contrasty as the Leica (exact length and speed escapes me just now, but faster than 2.8 and 46-49º AOV), it is a winning performer, on price, compactness, and general utility. It is probably the smallest and lightest lens I have ever had for either a DSLR or 35mm. It is reasonably fast, has very smooth and fine MF and makes sharp pictures, save a small amount of chromatic aberration, but only occasionally (a little fringe sometimes, mostly very light, long verticals in high contrast areas). I like the metal mount, which is a feature also rarer in these days of plastic everything. For about $230, it is a useful plunk into my 4:3 kit bag. I will say that the 14-42mm f/3.5--5.6 kit zoom is probably sharper, and with less CA, but for more money bought apart from the kit, and almost 4x the size. I wish there were more to choose from in primes for my E-520, but among those available, the 25mm 'pancake' is good to very good overall.

My new favorite standard lens

By

from Medford, OR  -  Photo Enthusiast

I bought this lens for my Olympus E-410 as a way to carry a compact, almost pocketable outfit with me, since an E-P2 micro-4/3 is out of my budget right now. This camera-lens combination is a joy to carry around all day. If you can live without f/1.4 or f/1.8, then this is the lens for you.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Does this lens have the micro 4/3 mount? Can it be used with lumix bodies?
AKSEL J  This lens has the standard FourThirds mount, and will only work on micro 4/3 with one of Olympus' micro 4/3 adapters. It's designed to be used with contrast detect auto focus, so that should work fine. However, the price of the package (lens + adapter) is as much as Panasonic's 20mm lens, which will work without an adapter (and is a very nice, compact lens). So, unless you have other (older) FourThirds lenses that you also need to convert, the 25mm is not the best value around. I am assuming when you are talking about Lumix bodies, you are referring to the micro 4/3 bodies, not the older 4/3 ones.
Tony M  Will this work on e330?
WILLIAM B  I have this lense on two E510s and one E3, It works fine. talk to Adorama. They know everything Good Guys I don't know.
Paul W  Does this lens work on a e620 camera body?
RANDY L  Yes, absolutely! Great for when you want to "go small," plus f/2.8 is better than many of the zooms I usually carry, so it's easy to keep handy for when a little more light-gathering capability is needed.
