Olympus M.ZUIKO Digital 25mm f/1.8 Review

May 2, 2014 | Mark Goldstein |


The Olympus M.ZUIKO Digital 25mm f/1.8 is a very small and light standard prime lens that focuses quickly and precisely and delivers sharp image quality across the frame, even at the maximum f/1.8 aperture. Chromatic aberrations and vignetting at f1/8 are both present but well-controlled, and the bokeh effects are very nice given the short-ish focal length and relatively small image sensor. The official price-tag is a little higher that we'd expect for this kind of lens, compared historically to other systems, but overall the Olympus M.ZUIKO Digital 25mm f/1.8 makes a great addition to a Micro Four Thirds photographer's camera bag.
