The M.Zuiko Digital ED 25mm f1.2 PRO is one of the most versatile high-performing prime lenses ever manufactured. With its superior optical design, you’ll take stunning portraits, richly-detailed landscape shots, and high-quality everyday photography. It’s an ideal lens for creating images with beautifully defocused backgrounds and bokeh. You’ll also find professional features like Olympus’ most advanced lens coating, lightning fast high-precision AF, and convenient controls to ensure every shot is an amazing shot.
It’s all about the glass. Our 25mm f1.2 PRO achieves spectacular edge-to-edge sharpness – even at the maximum f1.2 aperture – thanks to its incredible collection of glass. We’ve assembled 19 lens elements into 14 groups to create the most complex Micro Four Thirds lens ever made, including Super ED, ED, E-HR, HR, and aspherical elements. Spherical and chromatic aberrations that often occur in fast, prime lenses are eliminated. Colour fringing is thoroughly suppressed. All that’s left are clear, crisp images you can’t wait to show off.
If you love shooting with shallow depth of field, the 25mm f1.2 PRO does it beautifully. Its high optical performance eliminates aberrations, distortion, and fringing in both focused and defocused areas, even with a wide open f1.2 stop. Paired with the ultra-high resolution of the focused areas, the defocused background creates a natural looking three-dimensional effect. Shoot stunning portraits with sharp details and beautiful bokeh that emphasizes your subject in both bright and low light.
Speed & Accuracy
Many autofocus lenses have a trade-off: they use multiple moving elements to reduce aberration, but their focusing speed slows down as a result. Fortunately, there are no sacrifices with the 25mm f1.2 PRO. At the heart of its design is a lightweight inner focusing mechanism that uses a single lens element. It provides ultra-fast ultra-sharp autofocus performance, even at the lens’ widest f1.2 aperture. The Movie and Still Compatible mechanism provides quiet, smooth focusing – a must have for videographers.
The 25mm f1.2 PRO uses a tandem of coatings for ultimate shooting versatility. Zuiko Extra-Low Reflection Optical (ZERO) lens coating is adapted from multi-layer film disposition technology in Olympus’ industry-leading microscopes. Z Coating Nano, our most advanced coating yet, adds nanoparticle technology for increased effectiveness. Ghosting and flares caused by in-frame light sources are virtually eliminated. Whether shooting directly into the sun or other backlit environments, your images stay rich in detail with superior resolution.
Shoot in adverse conditions without worrying about your lens. The premium metal construction of the 25mm f1.2 PRO is hermetically sealed to keep out moisture and dust for splashproof, dustproof, and freezeproof performance (all the way down to 14°F / -10°C). This professional lens is the perfect complement to a weatherproof OM-D body, a combination that’s ideal for taking advantage of every photo opportunity.
Pros need effortless control of their gear. The 25mm f1.2 PRO lens delivers. The customizable Lens Function Button (L-Fn) lets you control your choice of camera functions right from the lens barrel, including Focus Peaking, AF Stop, and Magnify. The conveniently-located Manual Focus Clutch on the lens’ focus ring lets you instantly shift between auto and manual focus. You can even preset a focus position using the easy-to-read distance meter, and by pulling the ring toward you, instantly return to that position from AF mode.
