The ZUIKO DIGITAL 25mm 1:2.8 (35mm equivalent focal length: 50mm) pancake lens accentuates the amazing compactness of the E-System. Featuring an extremely short-barrelled, lightweight design, this lens represents the perfect accompaniment for the Olympus E-series. With its overall compactness, the set-up reminds of the legendary improvement to mobility that the famous Olympus OM series provided.
With an overall length of just 23.5mm and weighing in at a tiny 95g, the new Zuiko Digital 25mm 1:2.8 lens takes mobility to a higher level. Matched with the E-420, it represents the most compact camera body and lens combination available - with a collective length of just 76.5mm.
The go-anywhere single-focus lens boasts premium optics matched with a bright 1:2.8 aperture and a small minimum focusing distance. Featuring a focal length equivalent to 50mm on a 35mm camera system, it provides an angle of view near to that of the human eye - and is therefore an ideal standard lens for daily use. Adhering to the Four Thirds Standard, this model is fully-compatible with the made-for-digital Olympus E-System.
When mounted to the Olympus E-410 or E-420, the total length of camera body and lens is a meagre 76.5mm - making it both exceptionally portable and easy to store.
Double-sided aspherical lens elements provide optimal aberration correction and return images with exceptional edge-to-edge sharpness and clarity. Furthermore, to optimise shooting against light, this single-focus lens incorporates a specially-formulated coating that minimises ghosting and flaring. With its bright 1:2.8 circular diaphragm aperture, photographers can create striking soft-focus images and also take advantage of natural defocusing effects.
Boasting a focal length equivalent to 50mm on a 35mm camera, this lens provides a near natural visual field as it closely resembles the human eye's natural field of vision. And at just 20cm, the minimum focusing distance lets photographers get extremely close to their subjects, to further add to this astoundingly compact lens’ versatility.
To set off its extremely sleek and streamlined appearance, Zuiko Digital 25mm 1:2.8 lens also features a screw-on aluminium lens cap.
