25mm Pancake

Just a quick question. Does this lens have a focus motor or is it manual focus?

Many thanks in advance.

Mike

I belive that it is auto focus, but you can focus it manually (fly by wire)

Re: 25mm Pancake

Yes, it is AF. It is an excellent lens. Fly by wire MF also exists. The lens cap (screw in) is a bad joke. But Oly sells a 43mm lens cap for its P&S and bridge cameras. got mine for $6.95. It says Olympus. A cheaper generic 43mm snap cap would have been $3.50. There's no lens hood. Oly has one in its catalog but appears not to have it in stock yet. In any event, it is priced at $39.95 If yo feel the need for a hood there are several reasonable options for very little money.

Again, great lens. Don't hesitate.

Chrs, Stv

Thanks guys. I already have one on order but when I looked more at the specs. I could not see mention of autofocus.
