Also check out his friend's photos with the new body cap lens. http://www.jackieloi.com/2014/02/chinese-new-year-shooting-at-pudu-wet.html

Part two is up for those that are interested. http://robinwong.blogspot.com/2014/02/olympus-mzuiko-25mm-f18-lens-review.html

General conclusion I walk away with is that both are good lenses. His observation that the Olympus might be brighter than the Panasonic is a bit provocative.

If the first part got people frothed up, the second won't settle them down any.

I know Robin said he isn't in the business of comparing a neverending list of gear, but in the case of this review, it would have been a good idea to add a late model Panasonic body to the mix. Even though they use the same mount, there have been some differences between the way O & P's bodies have worked with some lenses. All Robin can really say is how the Panasonic 25/1.4 performed on an Olympus E-M10. That's worth knowing, but in my opinion, not checking how that lens performs on say, a GH3, doesn't give a well rounded view of the 25/1.4.
