PIX 2015

Panasonic Leica Summilux DG 25mm F1.4

Announced Jun 13, 2011 •
Prime lens | Micro Four Thirds | H-X025

Purchased March 2015 in the UK for £320 on ebay tax and duty paid, then accepted for registration by Panasonic... Remarkably sharp and with a delicious tonal quality, obviously superior to the Pansonic 20mm f1.7 which I also own. Incredibly fast focus speed and no hunting or uncertainty. All in all a great lens.

This lens is sharp wide open at f1.4 and ...

I have never seen pictures as clear using Pan-Leica 25mm on a DMC-GF1, since I stopped using my Leica M6. The color, sharpness, DOF and ability to take pictures without a flash is as everyone has stated before. Once you look at the pictures you know it just feels like the old leica quality. If you ever used a Leica M then you know don't need zoom lens's. A prime needs more work and it brings you back to taking pictures that you had to put more thought into. I can't afford a Leica M9 and ...
