Whatever subjects you shoot, discover what the depth of field control of this lens can do for your photography. We’ve all experienced how difficult it is to take blur-free pictures when shooting under dimly-lit conditions without a tripod and flash. With the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 25mm 1:1.8, however, you can enjoy extended low-light shooting capabilities thanks to the fast 1:1.8 aperture coupled with Olympus’ in-body IS systems for tack-sharp images with minimal camera shake at low shutter speeds .

High speed AF with MSC technology
What's more it isn't overly complicated for anyone to create such attention-drawing effects, and the Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 25mm 1:1.8 will undoubtedly hold appeal for people wanting to achieve more professional looking photographs of everything. The lens also delivers high speed auto focusing, which will delight both stills photographers and videographers or movie-makers equally thanks to the movie and still compatible ('MSC') AF mechanism. The AF benefits from the internal focusing mechanism used for conventional interchangeable lenses being improved by incorporating a screw drive mechanism – a metal shaft finished with sub-micron precision – instead of gears that cause noise. High precision plastics also ensure a quick, smooth, silent and moreover accurate AF drive. The MSC mechanism is therefore ideal when tracking a moving child or pet.
Great results at any conditions and situations
The Olympus M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 25mm 1:1.8 isn’t just the ideal lens to fit for low light shooting as well as being very convenient to carry; it’s truly multipurpose, coming up trumps in a variety of shooting conditions – good and bad. This is because the lens design thoroughly eliminates chromatic aberration, ghosting and flare so users won’t get unwanted reflections even when shooting in sunnier climes.
ZERO (Zuiko Extra-low Reflection Optical) coating for low-reflectivity
The lens surfaces of the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 25mm 1:1.8 are coated with Olympus's ZERO coating, which cuts the reflectance of wavelengths between 450 and 650 nm by 50%. This ensures clear imaging performance even under challenging conditions, such as shooting against the light. The ZERO coating is a result of optical control technology that Olympus originally developed for microscopes. As well as achieving clear images, this technology also helps prevent scratches and degradation to the lens due to the enhanced strength and durability made possible by vacuum deposition.
Stylish housing with a textured metallic finish
This lens looks and feels as good as it performs optically. The quality metallic outer finish provides a comfortable, pleasing texture and the feeling of long-lasting solidity and a classic look appropriate for a true precision instrument.
Close-up performance and autofocus
This lens has been designed to get you even closer to the action: the minimum focus distance is just 25cm. By using the macro converter MCON-P02 you can shoot a mere 17cm from your subject - ideal for still-life and close-up photography. The MSC (Movie and Still Compatible) mechanism inside the M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 25mm 1:1.8 is the result of optical design technology developed to enable fast, quiet AF. Using a high-precision metallic shaft and feed screw instead of a gear, this mechanism ensures a silent operation and a rapid, smooth and above all highly accurate autofocus, giving you stress-free shooting without noise of lens mechanics for improved sound quality when shooting HD movies.Taking still images is quiet too, enabling you to get closer to the action without disturbing your subject.
