I think everything they've been saying about this lens is just about right. I find this to be sharp and the quality is esentially identical to the 45. My copy focuses silently. No clicks or clunks. The hood is nice. It's plastic but solid and the bayonet mount holds tight. All in all I think it's worth the price.

Had the first chance yesterday to spend some real time with my new Olympus 25mm f/1.8 on the EM-1. I was thoroughly impressed with the lens from a photographer's perspective, without looking at all the charts, etc.

My wife and I ran across a set of old buildings that were heavily covered in graffiti. A photographer's paradise. Hopefully I can find time later today to post more images.

Excellent! How was the focus in that low light? Bar shooting is the primary reason I'm looking at this lens.

Yesterday, my wife and I stumbled onto an awesome set of buildings in an old industrial area of Nashville. I started to take a few shots through the fence, and the guy who appeared to own the property saw us and invited us to look around. Impressive artwork for street graffiti. All were taken with the Olympus 25mm f/1.8... mostly at f/2 to f/2.2.

Nashville, huh? I've never run across those. That last one is especially amazing.

I just got my copy today.. I have to say it fits like a glove on the OMD! Not so much on the E-P5.. but my newly purchased refurb 12mm is nice on my E-P5... Anyhow.. I took the camera out tonight for a quick walk by some antique shops I frequent to get some shots... These were all outside shot through the window display...

I will be going out night shooting tomorrow and I will have this and my ep5/12mm combo with me...

Nice shots, but unfortunately the lens seems to suffer from bad green fringing in the background blur, especially noticeable in the bike picture. Are these taken in RAW? Processed? Shot wide open?

Yes, he is always in Alexandria whenever we go there.

The bike shot was shot wide open, processed in LR5 w. Vsco Velvia preset and cropped a little. It was against the sunset, so the dynamic range wasn't enough as the jpg looks more burned over there. The pp recovered some of the branches but pushed the green fringing more. I didn't see it when I went thru the images on my laptop. I can try w/o Velvia preset which might correct some of it.
