Panasonic 25mm f1.4 and OMD?
Nov 28, 2012

How well does the 25mm pair with the OMD in terms of image quality and AF?

I have the 20mm, which I loved on my GF1, but which hunts and focuses slowly on the OMD. I also have Panasonic 12-35mm f2.8, which is much faster on the AF front (almost as fast as Oly primes), has pleasing color and contrast, but as expected with a zoom, is not as sharp.

I'm considering getting the 25mm if the AF is as good or better than the 12-35, and image quality is as a good or better than the 20mm. (Of course, I am aware of the pluses and minuses of the extra 5mm focal length.) Thanks.
