Lenstip's Review of the Panasonic Leica 15mm f/1.7
4 months ago

Optyczne.pl (Lenstip) has reviewed the 15mm and noted the "missed opportunity" as it is not really special, in spite of its price and its Leica label. It explained that since there is nothing stellar in all the many M43 wide angle lenses except for one non-AF and heavy Voigtlander 17.5mm f/0.95, this should have been an opportunity to achieve some greatness with this "Leica" 15mm.

The original review has not been translated to English yet.

I am not surprised at all after the other reviews, and given the fact that this lens is clearly compromised by making it small enough to fit the GM1.  Not bad, but not special either.
