WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET The 25mm focal length of this lens reflects the way you see the world: natural, straightforward and undistorted. Its angle of view is closest to the human visual field, so what you see with your eyes matches the perspective of the images you capture. This makes the 25mm f1.8 a perfect fit for “snap shot” photography, as you can easily take images as you see them without thinking about the composition of the photograph.
BUILT FOR BEAUTIFUL BOKEH Photographers who shoot a lot of portraits and still-lifes are always seeking good bokeh. You may not know it by this term, which comes from the Japanese word for “blur” or “haze,” but you’ve no doubt admired photos where the subject is in focus while the background is seriously blurred. Lenses with relatively shallow depth of field – like the 25mm – are especially well suited to capture the combination of tack-sharp subject and beautifully soft, defocused background that exemplifies bokeh.
ALL-AROUND PORTABILITY Adding a lens like the 25mm f1.8 to your kit is a great idea if you’re interested in taking beautiful images of your family and friends, or even your food when you’re out to eat! In fact, this lens is a terrific walking-around for everyday photography lens – it’s compact, lightweight and flexible enough to freeze action one minute and capture candid portraits the next. It’s an excellent choice for the photographer who’s looking to expand his or her creative options.
QUIET AUTO FOCUS
SHHHHH, AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHY IN PROGRESS The inclusion of the Movie & Still Compatible (MSC) mechanism makes AF operations completely silent. In combination with the OM-D's Silent Mode (electronic shutter), you can photograph skittish nature subjects as well as indoor events that require complete silence like musical performances. The size and weight of the OM-D system and these silent features open up a whole new world of shooting possibilities!
