After a few failed snapshot using AF, I tried MF with pre-focus which worked quite well, however the 25mm f1.4 doesn't have a distance scale on it, so I have to pre-focus every time I switch back to MF. Since the rubber focus ring has groove on it, I could use a coloured pen to draw stuff in. Just want to make sure, that if I focus, say between 1-3meters at F4 with focus ring rotated to position X, next time with the same aperture, is it still position X for the ring and I can get it to focus...

I hate it's molassesness(sic). But looking around, I don't feel a 17mm is a sufficient differentiator to the 15mm. 15-vs-20, yeah, definitely a home for both. 15-vs-17, I'm struggling for justification. And at the same time as a prime-first user, there's too big of a gap between the 15 and the 25. So am I stuck with it as an inbetween to the 15mm and the 25mm?
Hello :-) A huge thank you in advance for your time and assistance. (and patience!) Kit: Lumic G3 (DMC-G3) Body Lumix/Leica 25mm f1.4 The lens is a huge upgrade on the out-of-the-box lens, but I'm really struggling with the following issues: (1) Keeping everyone in focus. I took a picture of 6 people at a rectangular table. The farthest 2 are blurry :-( Here are the details of the image file: ISO 800f1.40 ev1/60 Similarly, I have a photo of the birthday girl holding out a great birthday...
Hi everybody! In a few days, a GX8 will be in my hands. :) I'll order a Panny 7-14, 12-35, 45-175 and...I want the best pancake or the smaller lens I could get for just a walking around or just for those moments I just want to bring the smaller photography kit I can. Let's say, just the camera and the smaller lens. I do want quality. I'm pretty image quality demanding. Ok ok...I know... photography techniques count...and counts a lot! Lets pretend I know those stuff. LOL I was considering the...

Hello. I'm pretty new to MFT cameras, but I did search the forums before posting this. I purchased a Panasonic GH4 and the Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 25mm f/1.4 a few weeks ago. For a few weeks this was my only lens while I played around with it and got used to the controls. I noticed that the lens made some noise, but I had no real reference point so I just assumed it was normal. I then acquired the Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 15mm f/1.7 and the Panasonic Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f/1.2....
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...
