Olympus M.Zuiko 25mm f/1.2 PRO Lens Review


Olympus 25mm F1,2 Front Oblique View
This 25mm f/1.2 lens for Micro Four Thirds (MFT) cameras is equivalent to a 50mm f/1.2 “standard” lens in 35mm-format terms. The standard lens was for many years the lens of choice when buying a new camera, in more recent times largely replaced by the “kit zoom”. However, a growing awareness that prime lenses are light, bright and potentially of better quality than inexpensive zooms gives rise to their current popularity as a subsequent purchase. Notwithstanding the appearance of several f/0.95 optics, traditionally f/1.4 was the brightest norm and the very few f/1.2 lenses regarded as something really quite special and very expensive. It will be interesting to see how this new f/1.2 design performs, mounted for this review on a Panasonic Lumix G6 body.
