Zuiko quality enables high optical performance The M.Zuiko Digital 25mm F1.8 is a high-quality, standard lens that produces beautiful defocusing effects and high resolution, along with the same high optical performance of the popular M.Zuiko Digital 45mm F1.8, while maintaining a compact and lightweight size. Traditional 50mm DSLR standard lenses generally use a Gauss-type configuration, however, to achieve a smaller form, fast and quiet AF, lens design for the digital age with an inner focusing system was used. To reduce aberration from the center to the periphery, 9 lenses including an aspherical lens are lavishly used, demonstrating clear and sharp optical performance. Also, by using the Olympus-original ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating, ghosts and flaring are suppressed for clear depictive performance even in backlit and other unfavorable shooting conditions.
Close-up shooting performance up to 25 cm away The M.Zuiko Digital 25mm F1.8 can shoot up to 25 cm away for close-up photography, with a maximum magnification factor of 0.24x at 35mm equivalent (0.12x), able to fit a postcard sized shot (A6 equivalent) in the screen full size. When shooting close-ups of tableware or food, the aperture setting of F1.8 creates soft defocusing effects for tabletop photos that are a touch different than the average. By combining this lens with the separately-sold Macro Conversion Lens MCON-P02, close-up shooting up to 17m away is possible, for easy macro photography at a maximum shooting magnification of 0.436x at 35mm equivalent (0.218x).
Fast, silent AF so you never miss a shot The M.ZUIKO Digital 25mm F1.8 is equipped with the MSC (Movie & Still Compatible) mechanism inner focusing system for fast, smooth, silent, and high-precision AF (auto focusing). When used in combination with fast AF on Olympus Pen and OM-D series cameras, you'll never miss a shot.
