Olympus Zuiko Digital 25mm Pancacke Review

Review Summary
Reader Score: 8.33 (out of 10)
Review (Summary): "The word 'Pancake' in the lens's title offers a clue to its most striking physical characteristic; it is extremely thin (just 24mm, or less than 1") and extremely light, making it the perfect complement to Olympus's E-4x0 class bodies as an (almost) pocketable, carry-anywhere solution, with all the speed and responsiveness of a DSLR coupled with image quality unmatched by any small-sensor compact digicam. ...

... it has to be said that us photographers here in the DPReview studios have really rather enjoyed using this lens; it certainly makes a refreshing change from bulky SLR bodies and large zoom lenses. Ultimately this is the 25mm F2.8's strongest selling point. ..."

Review (Summary): "Affectionately known as a pancake lens, the Zuiko Digital 25mm is very thin: indeed it’s just 23.5mm thick and weighs only 95g. When fitted to a smaller DSLR like the Olympus E-420, the result is a highly portable kit that’ll squeeze into larger pockets and has a total operating weight including battery of 521g. ...

... As a standard lens alone we can recommend it, but if you have one of the smaller Olympus bodies and value portability, then it’s an unbeatable choice. Indeed we’d say it’s mandatory if you bought an E-4xx for its compact dimensions."
