It seems like the panasonic doesn't have much background blur compared to the spec.  This link shows it comparible to the fuji 35mm 1.4 @2.8

I'm interested on a 25mm for my E-M1. We have two native 25mm now : a f/1.4 and a f/1.8 lens.

But there's some questions about the fact the Panasonic 25mm is a real f/1.4 lens :

What do you think? Is it possible that the Panaleica is more a f/1.7 rather than a f/1.4 lens?

What are your thoughts about it?
