    Cons: None for the price really.

    Pros: Sharp, lightweight.

    Summary: Can\'t argue with a lens that cheap that produces good results. It focuses fast and silently, it\'s quite sharp even wide open and has pleasant bokeh.

    Cons: Annoying decorative lens ring which needs to be removed before fitting the lens hood provided. Diffraction becomes obvious beyond f11.

    Pros: This is a great prime lens for those who don\'t want to spend hugely to gain quality results. Metal mount, smooth manual focusing ring, lightweight and easy to handle. This \'nifty-fifty\' equivalent adds another dimension to your photography; f1.7 to f4 gives stand out results, with f5.6 the real sweet spot. An all round good buy for sensible money and one that pays off quickly with excellent results. An \'always with me\' companion.

    Summary: A no-brainer choice. Micro four thirds users will have to look far and wide to find anything that scores so well overall at current prices. OK, the 20mm f1.7 is smaller for those who want pocket-size, pancake glass, but for the rest of us this 25mm earns its keep everytime. It\'s a gem and deserves better recognition.

    Cons: plastic, electronic focus ring, AF is good but not as fast as my 14-140 v2 which feel instantaneous. Cheap by m4/3 standard, but there still is more attractive choice for Canon, Nikon... It does not feel as smooth when you mount it on the camera as my 14-140mm or even my cheap chinese Lens Turbo.

    Pros: surprisingly sharp at all apertures in the center and across the frame at from f/2.2 (best at f/5.6). not so thin dof but very smooth bokeh solid construction for the price : metal mount and nice quality plastic lens hood very good quality/price ratio low coma --> astrophotography

    Summary: I\'m very pleased by this lens. I didn\'t expect too much for this price, I finally found myself to really like it. It feels nice and even has a strong character :

    Cons: It is not very small compared to its front element size or Olympus 25/1.8. Plastic body and focus ring. Purely electronic manual focus without distance indicators or hard stops. AF is not as lightning-fast as some other m43 lenses (but not slow either). Aperture in auto-aperture modes (S or P) sometimes switches to f/1.8 on Olympus OM-D E-M5 even in low light (I am not sure, maybe it is the camera).

    Pros: Good value at $100. Comes with a lens hood. Decent sharpness. Good bokeh, although some LaCA is visible. Decent AF speed. Very light. Metal mount.

    Summary: Must buy at $100 (unless you already have Pana 25/1.4 or Oly 25/1.8, and even if you already have the latter it might make sense to sell it for more than $100 and buy this one). Not sure if it is worth $179. Not worth more than $200, that is for sure, let alone its asking MSRP.
