This high-image quality standard Olympus M.Zuiko 25mm f/1.8 Lens can be used for many situations from portraits to landscapes. You can easily capture images with beautiful background defocusing effects and can shoot in a dark room thanks to the wide aperture lens. It also features the fast, quiet AF system MSC that lets you surely capture the right moment. Convetional SLRs adopt a Gauss type lens construction for 50mm standard lenses, but Olympus adopts a new generation lens construction with an inner focus system for the digital age. The result is a quiet, fast autofocus and small sized lens. It contains 9 high-quality elements including aspherical lens elements to provide clear, sharp image from the centre to the edges without aberrations.
This compact and lightweight lens has a useful focal length of 25mm (35mm equivalent focal length: 50mm) and features sharpness and soft defocusing effects that make it the perfect lens for various scenes such as portrait and still life photos. Semi-macro shooting is possible up to a maximum image magnification of 0.12x (35mm equivalent: 0.24x) and the minimum focus distance of 25cm. The large F1.8 aperture lets you capture images with beautiful background defocusing effects. The optional macro converter (MCON-P02) changes the closest focusing distance to 17cm and the maximum image magnification to 0.22x (35mm equivalent maximum image magnification: 0.44x). It turns the lens into a semi macro lens.
The MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) mechanism with an inner focus system enables fast, smooth, quiet and precise auto focusing. By using it together with the FAST AF system of a PEN or OM-D series camera, you can surely capture the right shot at any time. It is also suited for quiet environments and movie shooting, due to the quiet AF.
