The M.Zuiko Digital 25mm F1.8 is a small, fast, 'normal' prime for Micro Four Thirds cameras, that bears a distinct family resemblance to Olympus's much-loved 45mm F1.8. It offers an interesting alternative to the more-expensive Panasonic Leica Summilux DG 25mm F1.4, or the compact Panasonic Lumix G 20mm F1.7 II ASPH 'pancake'. It will be available in a choice of black or silver.
