The Olympus Zuiko Digital 25mm ‘pancake’ lens is an ideal general-purpose lens for any Four Thirds owners who value portability. It is first and foremost really very small, measuring 64mm in diameter and just 23.5mm thick.

  • +

    Very slim and light. Ideal for smaller bodies., Coverage suitable for general-purpose use., Bright f2.8 aperture., Usable manual focusing ring.

  • -

    Lacking the focal range flexibility of a zoom., Coloured fringing in corners., Screw-on lens cap slow to fit and remove., 14-42mm is cheaper when bought in a kit.

The Olympus Zuiko Digital 25mm F2.8 Pancake is an idiosyncratic little lens with its own unique 'personality', and therefore really rather difficult to categorize. Unusually for a Zuiko, we're not exactly shouting from the rooftops about its optical quality; it's sharp enough for sure, but the...

  • +

    Tiny size and extremely light weight, Decent sharpness, remarkably consistent across all apertures from wide open to F8, Proper manual focus ring and non-rotating front element

  • -

    Chromatic aberration visible across much of the frame, Noticeable barrel distortion, Impractical screw-in lens cap

I like the compact design of this lens. It's not the best in low light but certainly not the worse. One thing I'm not a fan of is the screw on front lens cover. But overall its a decent lens. I'm not excited about it but definitely not unhappy about it.

Have been playing with my new 25mm partnered with an OM-D E-M5 for a few weeks now. Enjoying the camera much more this way than with the kit 12-50mm originally purchased. That's a good lens but its a bit obtrusive.

In short: decent lens, decent price, fun to use, not for everyone. Let me get my technical observations out of the way first. It's very small and light, and very easy to wield. I'd avoid this lens if you only had an E-3, but on any other model is a welcome change from using a big zoom.

  • +

    size/weight, good and consistent IQ; but see weaknesses, versatile and useful focal length as a prime

  • -

    chromatic aberration performance, screw-on lens cap is not practical
