Panasonic 25mm 1.4 vs. Oly 1.8: SLRgear blur assessments
8 months ago

Anyone notice the color-coded blur index (SLRgear) for the two suggests the Panny hits higher peaks than the Oly? The Oly's better in the far corners, but starting with a smidge near the center at f2 through f8, the Panny essentially hits a level of sharpness the Oly doesn't reach anywhere in the frame at any aperture.

I had and sold the 25mm at one point, but I'm still struck by how sharp the pictures taken are at the center, even wide open. Wanted to buy it again but held off knowing the Olympus lens was coming out.

The reviews for the new Oly lens are uniformly positive -- comparisons to the 1.4 actually tilt towards the new lens.
