CONCLUSION: So to wrap up this review, we gave the Olympus 25mm f/1.2 PRO Series lens a 44/50 and our RECOMMENDED rating…
THE FINAL WORD: I’m a huge fan of Olympus and of M43 in general, and I don’t want to give you the wrong impression, because I think the Oly 25mm f/1.2 PRO is a great lens, really, I think it’s great. But it’s core value proposition is the aforementioned f/1.2 aperture, which is great in low light, but the optics at f/1.2 are only very good and not up to Olympus’s usually amazing optical quality standard wide open that we’ve seen on virtually every other OLY lens - PRO or otherwise. As was mentioned previously, if you’re a working pro using the M43 system, then I think the 25 PRO is a professional necessity, but if I were an enthusiast or a hobbyist, I think I’d be more inclined to spend my money on either the Pany Leica 25 f/1.4 or Olympus’s own 25 f/1.8 - both are extraordinarily capable and both are a lot less money.. I believe the Olympus 25 PRO should in fact carry a premium, and let’s say the lens were $899 or $999 instead of $1,199, then I think we’d be having a slightly different discussion. It’s a great lens, but just not at $1,199…
