Olympus 25mm 1.8 vs. Panasonic Leica 25mm 1.4 for Olympus body (E-M5)
7 months ago

I know there will be quite a few comparisons between these two lenses (and I plan on owning both). I am trying to figure out which one to get first and I had a few specific questions for people who have used both lenses with an Olympus body.

1. AF Speed. Both have very fast AF but is the Oly 25mm lens even a tad bit faster on AF with an Olympus body?

2. How useful have you found the extra stop of the Panasonic lens? Please do explain.

3. Both are very sharp lenses. Which is sharper?

4. Do the distortion corrections made by a Olympus body with the Oly 25mm 1.8 make for an advantage?

Thanks a lot.
