I am wondering if there is any strong reason to keep the Pana / Leica Summilux 25 mm f/1.4 after purchasing the Voigtländer Nokton 25 mm f/0.95? So far I am very pleased with the Nokton's image quality and handling (manual focusing & aperture control was the main reason to get it). Of cause the Nokton is much larger and heavier, but the Summilux is also not really small. If I really need a compact kit, I have the Zuiko 17 mm f/1.8. So it seems the Summilux is redundant for me. Any thoughts?

I am about to come into some money that I want to invest in improving the quality of my images. My budget will be about $1000, and maybe $1200 maximum.  I'm not a pro, just an enthusiast that likes to take pictures. I currently have the following equipment: Panasonic G5 camera 14-45mm f/3.5-5.6 standard zoom 45-175mm f/4-5.6 power zoom 100-300mm f/4-5.6 long tele zoom 25mm f/1.4 PanaLeica fast prime 45mm f/2.8 PanaLeica macro (which I also use for some portraits and as a short tele). I shoot...

I just sold my 20mm pancake and gave my 45mm to my wife with the intention of buying the PL 25mm 1.4. I've had the 25mm in 'my basket' for the last day or so but wanted to sense check my thinking with some experts before I commit. The 20mm was often left in my bag or at home, the 7.5mm or 14mm are obviously better at wide angle shots and I prefer the rendering of the 45mm for portraits and shallow DoF shots, as well as it being a lot quicker to focus than the 20mm. The only issue with the...

Hello I just got used 25mm DG lens and I was wondering  if it is normal for lens to make 'tick' sound when it locks on autofocus. (I'm not talking about the artificial "beep" sound camera creates it sounds like inner element suddenly stopping) this tick sound disappears when I'm in zoom in mode. (also little bit slower to focus) thanks for help

Hi all,Looking for inspiration from a next lens. About me: I like primes generally but also like the look of the two Panasonic zooms. I have a GX1 and a 14 and 25. I often end up using the 25 because the results are often so pleasing. It's inspiring.I suppose the main contenders are the Olympus 12 or 45 lenses. The 17 too but I'd end up using it just like my 25 and would often just use the 25. Some context is:a) I like the 14 but find it a little pedestrian. It just doesn't inspire me. I...

Hi,I've been running the 25mm 1.4 through its paces on my E-PL2, and tonight I noticed some bands of color/darkness on the screen: It wasn't exceedingly bright in the room at the time, just a lamp + overhead light. This was much more noticeable in person, and mostly disappeared when aiming at a darker object.The thing that is puzzling me is that earlier I heard some rattlesnake noises from the lens while pointing it at the bright sky & mountains - expected. But while I had these bands - no...
