Olympus 25mm f/1.8 MFT Lens Reviews Roundup


From Steve Huff review:

I prefer the Olympus as I am not losing much at all over the Panasonic but I am gaining the small size, the nice price and the overall look that matches my other Olympus primes AS WELL as almost no CA issues. I could live with EITHER lens long-term.

From SlrGear Test :

The Olympus 25mm ƒ/1.8 M.Zuiko Digital is another excellent member of Olympus’ fast prime lens family for their Micro Four Thirds cameras. It feels solid and well-balanced on big and small Micro Four Thirds cameras, alike, and its compact size and light weight make it an excellent everyday, go-anywhere fast prime for portraits and low-light shooting.With outstanding sharpness, even wide-open, as well as minimal CA, vignetting and distortion, the new 25mm ƒ/1.8 is a very solid performer that produces excellent images.

From Pixelmania review:

All three deliver crisp images, have little distortion, and so on. Yes, theVoigtländer is slightly stronger, the cheaper Olympus, Panasonic sharper in the center, and so on and so forth. The big winner is in our opinion the MFT camera user can choose from three great 25mm lenses.

From PcMAG test :

The Olympus is our pick as Editors’ Choice. It’s incredibly sharp, compact, and fairly light. It won’t give you the light-gathering capabilities or shallow depth of field of an f/0.95 Nokton lens in all situations, but you can definitely get that look with the right shot.
