When Olympus first let us see their prototype of the 25mm f1.8, we weren’t allowed to take photos with the lens attached to a camera. But now we’ve got a review unit. And for the past couple of days we’ve been playing with the more affordable offering to Panasonic’s 25mm f1.4 lens. Olympus stated that this lens is just like their 45mm f1.8 in terms of sharpness and performance.
It’s been snowing here in NYC, and despite the fact that this lens isn’t weather sealed it is still performing quite well on the OMD EM5 in the inclement conditions that we’re currently experiencing.
Here are a couple of first sample images from the lens. Full review is still being worked on.
