:) Hi there, Thank you for your nice reply.

25mm Pancake does not connect my Olympus E-520

I never own E-4xx camera at past time.

25mm is equivalent to 50mm in full sized sensor cameras. So it's not considered wide angle, because wide angle is anything under 50mm. 50mm is supposedly what the human eye sees at.

The pancake lens makes sense if you value portability in combination with an E-4xx camera. It's fun and discrete.

The 25mm pancake will fit your E-520. It'll fit any 4/3 format camera. It's just my opinion that the optical quality of the 25mm pancake isn't much better than the 14-42 kit lens set at 25mm. So you are not gaining much by having the 25mm pancake, UNLESS you want to have it for portability and discreteness. That's why the 25mm pancake is a great combo with the E-4xx series. I have an E-510, and I have used the 25mm pancake on it.

Forgot to say how fast the 25mm is, great for indoor low light no flash pictures!

It appears to me that the pancake is also quite a bit faster than the kit lens.

My 14-42 kit lens has a minimum of f4.7 at 25mm, whereas the pancake is f2.8.

Could someone tell me what this will mean to increased shutter speeds? For example, I took a dusk portrait last night at 25mm f4.7 at 1/40s. What speed shutter would I have obtained at f2.8?

Also, I imagine the decreased DOF may be useful sometimes
