Re: If you do portraits : absolutely

I'm a portrait shooter. As such, thin DOF is a tool of my trade and I often feel a tad imited with m4/3. I considered switching to APS-C mirrroless more than once. The PL25 is THE reason I'm staying with the format. I've shot high end Nikon and Canon L glass and this lens might be the best I ever used (maybe I have a great copy, don't know).

I started out with the 20, which is a great little lens. But this badboy 25 is just in a different world altogether. If you do portraits, it's a no brainer, the only thing you'll regret is not having switched sooner.

If you're tired of starting over, stop giving up.

I think you're absolutely right. The best 50 mm lens I've ever had, and I had my share of 50 mm lenses on the D700 (nikon 1.8d/g and the sigma 1.4) The PL25 trumps them all. And it does the same with it's little brother the 1.7. Superb IQ and a much faster and more accurate AF.

The first mft lens that I am completely satisfied with, especially in combination with the EM-5, although the 45/1.8 is no slouch either.
