Lens is very nice. Sharp and fast. Decent amount of room in case but I had to add a Velcro strap on the inside because everything easily can fall out.

works well to stream with my ZCam 4C. I am not a pro, so I have no idea how good the image quality is, but it looks very good to me.

I’m a retired professional photographer. I like to take street photos. That includes a lot of people photos. When I hold up my G9 and my small Olympus primes, people tend to ignore me. I also shoot YouTube videos for charity, and my Olympus primes are great video lenses. This 25mm f/1.8 fills in the gap optically between all my other Olympus f/1.8 or f/2 primes. The camera companies are pushing these big, fragile and very expensive zooms, but I walk around with a tiny bag of these prime lenses and the quality simply doesn’t get any better. I have fun.

Wonderful for low light and great portraits. I also use on on my gx9 on the street for distance when needed on a hand strap with my Fuji x100v around my neck. The lens is mind blowing at 3.5 and above rivals my best lenses. Also, very stylish and very tiny and subtle. A great buy

Does this lens have a manual clutch? Which lenses offer a manual clutch ?
Asked by: Lou
The lens has a manual focus clutch which can be used when in Manual mode or when Manual focus or one of the AutoFocus + Manual modes is selected. Because it is a prime lens there is no need for a manual zoom clutch.

question

is this lens compatible with one of the Olympus macro converters? If so, which one?
Asked by: Anonymous
No, there are no Olympus macro converters designed for use with the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 25mm f/1.8 Lens. If you are looking for an option to create macro close-up images with the Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 25mm f/1.8 Lens, the Hoya 46mm Close-up Filter Kit (+1,+2,+4), B&H # HOCUS46, would be recommended for your needs.
