Thin, Lightweight Pancake-Type Standard Lens
Mastery of the latest optical design technologies delivers a pancake-type lens with an overall length of only 0.9 inches and weight of just 3.4 ounces. Its compact, lightweight design makes this highly portable lens ideal for daily use, perfect for a wide range of photographic opportunities. With a focal distance equivalent to 50mm lens on a 35mm film camera, this pancake-type standard lens provides an image angle very similar to that of the naked eye. The result is a near-natural visual field that makes this an ideal standard lens for daily use, whether for simple snapshots or for more sophisticated portrait and landscape shooting.
Multi-Coated Lens With Aspherical Lens Element
Aspherical lens components help reduce the lens length and provide optimal aberration correction, achieving a sharp, clear image with exceptional edge-to-edge sharpness and clarity. A specially formulated lens coating optimized for shooting against light minimizes ghosts and flares.
f2.8 Brightness
The Zuiko 25mm employs a f2.8 brightness that allows you to achieve superb photos even in poor lighting conditions.
Excellent Close-up Shooting Capability
Close-up shooting is possible at a minimum distance of 7.9 inches (20 centimeters) from the front of the lens, adding to the versatility of this remarkable lens.
Circular Aperture
The Zuiko Digital 25mm lens' bright f2.8 maximum aperture combined with its circular aperture diaphragm allows photographers to create beautiful soft-focus images and also take advantage of natural defocusing effects.
Digital Specific Lens™
Zuiko Digital lenses are designed to focus light straight into an imager's pixel wells, to fill every pixel consistently. It's optical technology that delivers an image filled from center to edge with rich, accurate color, high contrast and subtle gradation. Designed exclusively for digital photography, Zuiko Digital lenses provide a level of precision that's simply unattainable from a digital body using a traditional 35mm film lens.

The Olympus FourThirds Standard uses lenses which are just as powerful as the lenses previously developed for 35mm film camera systems despite being about half the size. Thus the focal length of the 25mm in the FourThirds Standard gives the same angle of view as an 22-44mm lens for a 35mm film camera. It is important to know that this is not a 2x "crop factor" -- Olympus E-System lenses are designed for this size format and have a much higher resolution than lenses designed generally for 35mm film cameras. The benefit: superb image quality but less weight to carry.

Zuiko lenses feature a near telecentric design that ensures that the light hits the photodiodes at right angles, thus avoiding the problem of blurring at the edges of the image, or corner shading, which often occurs when using lenses originally designed for 35mm film cameras. Combined with the high resolution of Olympus Zuiko Digital lenses, this lens design exploits the full potential of the digital camera image sensors. The result is clear photos with strong colors and sharp contrasts right to the edges of the image.

Smart System
Zuiko Digital lenses communicate image information directly to the Olympus E-System Digital SLR for a level of exposure accuracy that's beyond the capabilities of a passive lens.
