Olympus M. Zuiko 25mm f1.8
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
A good lens. I like it.
Pop this fast, travel-friendly lens on your Olympus or other mirrorless camera, and prepare for a full day of taking crisp, accurate images of whatever inspires you — casual snapshots, street scenes, or passing landscapes. It's so small and lightweight you'll barely know it's there. Plus, this lens's large maximum f/1.8 aperture means it's a great choice for low-light shooting — whether that's Paris at night, or just indoors without a flash. It lets in plenty of light, so you won't get the overly dim or blurry photos you might see with other lenses. Plus, its smooth, quiet Movie & Stills Compatible (MSC) autofocus system excels at enabling you to gather excellent sound while capturing video.

A good lens. I like it.
The Olympus 25mm f1.8 lens is the perfect compliment to my Olympus OMD E-M1. It is a razor sharp fast prime lens at a great price. The 25mm f1.8 also delivers great color and contrast. Olympus supplies this lens with a lens hood that also reverses for storage. The OMD E-M1 is a great street camera. The 25mm f1.8 and the 45mm f1.8 lenses are must have lenses. Crutchfield service was excellent as usual.
Pros: Compact high speed prime lens. Razor sharp Great color Comes with a reversible lens hood Accepts 46mm filters
Micro Four Thirds Mount: The M. Zuiko Digital 25mm F1.8 prime lens has a Micro Four Thirds mount. It is compatible with the Olympus PEN and OM-D interchangeable lens cameras, and has a 35mm equivalent focal length of 50mm. The lens features all metal construction, and is ideal for use as an all-around lens for everyday photography.
MSC: This high-quality lens has a built-in MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) inner focusing mechanism for fast, quiet focusing, even while shooting movies.
Lens Hood: The lens comes with the LH-49B lens hood which protects the lens and helps prevent lens flare caused by stray light entering the lens. When not in use, the lens hood can be reversed and mounted on the lens.

I needed a prime lens, and this one had the best reviews hands down. [ Steven Dec 30, 2016 ]
It will fit any Panasonic or Olympus Micro 4/3 camera,be sure to update the E-PL1 body to the latest firmware version which may facilitate faster focusing. [ Lee Jun 10, 2015 ]
