Wow, so the PL25 is not even a f2 lens!...that Patrick Leong seem to know how to compare camera and lenses.

I don't think it is an f/2 lens, Patrick Leong is a bit too much here. Probably that if he can choose an aperture between f/2 and f/2.8 he'll find the perfect equality.

But his test suggests that the PL 25 doesn't quite give a DOF of a 1.4 lens.

OTOH, David Kieltyka's test seems to suggest otherwise.

Probaly the truth stays in the middle.

What's important is that people are happy with their lenses, and for sure the PL25 is a wonderful one, that you can't go wrong with. It's just that now we have choice, so it's good to know all caracterstics before buying one.
