    I ordered a silver Olympus M.Zuiko 25mm f1.8 to match my silver and black E-P5!
    It came in yesterday and I was able to test it out during a studio session with a published Tattoo model!

    The lens is sharp! Not 75/1.8 sharp, but pretty close.
    & of course the AF is fast, but I'm sure nobody questioned that.

    Overall, very happy with the lens, and I'll take it out again tomorrow when I head into the city to explore before the next (and hopefully) last snow storm hits NYC!

    From the studio session, I only have 2 images to share here with the 25/1.8 because of my error..:mad:
    I had Face Detect on, but the AF kept focusing on her hands instead of her face. I'm sure it has nothing to do with the lens, and it's just me that needs to learn how to use my new E-P5. Thank God I had many keepers from the 75/1.8 and from my Fuji X-T1!

    So happy to hear that the silver 25mm's are starting to come in! Where did you order from? I pre-ordered one (off to check my order status at B&H...). Thanks for sharing!

    Not your fault.
    Maybe her black nails were more 'eyebally' than her actual eyeballs?

    Also : if you have the new 25mm and the 45mm how would you tell which one's on the camera?
    You need to buy a second body.

    Yes, I think you're right! :smile:

    Haha.

    I still have a E-PM2, so my 45/1.8 is on that body.
