Panny 25mm 1.4 vs Olympus 25mm 1.8 Reviewed
Feb 15, 2014

Robin Wong has compared the Panny 25mm 1.4 to the Olympus 25mm 1.8.


There are some interesting points.  First, the Panasonic required a slower shutter speed at the same aperture, meaning there may be a difference in the way Olympus measures their f/stop and the way Panasonic does.

There seems to be very little difference in background blur, but there is a hair more with the Panasonic.

The Olympus lens was sharper at times, but not all the time.  The Olympus lens did have better corner sharpness.

After reading this, I would choose whichever lens was cheaper, though you should note the Olympus lens is smaller and lighter.

The Olympus will work better on Olympus bodies if CA is a concern.  It may be the reverse on Panasonic bodies.
