I am trying to make a fist of it with the 25mm. It is the go to lens at the moment as I try to find a place for it, both as a focal length and as the preferred representative of that focal length.
The focal length offers a true alternative to 35/90 as opposed to the 20mm (40mm) that would just make me unhappy, as I love the 17mm.
Close focus is also a boon. The above image was taken of our small, old dog Jack sitting on my lap.
It is also shows very accurate focussing, even with the wider focus area box on a a non-firmware updated EM5 mk1.
