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.

He addresses that line of thinking by saying that he can't really do all the comparisons that everybody wants him to do. He says that some of his observations may only be applicable when using Panasonic lenses with Olympus bodies. It’s probably most beneficial to read his review with that in mind.
