PL 25mm F1.4 VS Panny 20mm F1.7
for portrait use, how different in DOF? I want shallower DOF, but PL25mmF1.4 is way too expensive. But 20mmF1.7 doesn't seem good enough.
please post photos. thanks!
There are some nice comparative shots in the Camera Labs review of the 25mm:
I own (and love) the 20mm and find it great for wider or group portraits, but you will get some degree of distortion for single subject head shots. For that (and shallower DOF) it seems the Oly 45mm is king.
I'm getting there...
