I love my Panny 45mm, It's always sharp, I love it's macro feature, and I have used it for a couple of video projects,(interviews) and just super sharp on my GH3. The only beef I have with it is it's auto-focus is a bit slow in lower light situations. Yeah, it cost more, but it has great reviews, and that magic dollar getter name "Leica" co-marketed with it.

I believe that added name really helps when an owner decides on selling this Len's.
