Triple Olympus 25mm f/1.8 lens review.

The Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 25 mm f/1.8 complements their offer nicely, being a very interesting alternative to both the Panasonic 1.7/20 and the more expensive Leica 1.4/25.

Camerastuffreview writes:

Already at full opening, the sharpness is high from the corner to corner. You don’t often find that with bright lenses. On the Olympus website, the Olympus 25 mm f/1.8 is praised as an indispensable lens. For photographers with a preference for an affordable, compact, light and qualitatively high standard lens, Olympus is right. The only disadvantage that I can think of was that the lens is not extra well sealed against dust and splash water

A few thoughts about the Olympus 25/1.8 by Duncan Martin.

Time will tell if the Olympus 25 has any negative aspects which bite me in the backside, but so far I’m feeling positive.
