My first Leica!

Bought this lens because I was not satisfied with the corner distortions from my panasonic 20mm f1.7,at wide apertures.This Leica lens is virtully distortion free. It has produced some outstanding shots at f1.4. Not the low contrast images I'm used to seeing from my 50mm f1.4(35mm format)lens.Good color fidelity, contrast,and sharpness,they're all there.

Bought this lens because I was not satisfied with the corner distortions from my panasonic 20mm f1.7,at wide apertures.This Leica lens is virtully distortion free. It has produced some outstanding shots at f1.4. Not the low contrast images I'm used to seeing from my 50mm f1.4(35mm format)lens.Good color fidelity, contrast,and sharpness,they're all there. I can actually get this at F1.4!Outdoors the performance is also exceptional.Simply set the camera on program, and it will select the correct smaller aperture automatically. The smaller apertures are even better then F1.4! Bokah is ok at f 1.4, but the dramatic out of focus effects, That I get with my 35mm f1.4 lens are not present in this lens.This is not a fault of the lens though.This is common with the whole m4/3 system.On the plus side, the slightly deeper depth of field from this leica at F1.4, allows in focus,groupshots in very low light, at lower iso. I never have to set my epl2, auto iso to higher than 800 with this lens. When the lighting gets bad, just turn on the in camera vibration reduction,turn on the auto iso, and shoot. I average 70% sharp hits at shutter speeds as low as 10, in very dark scenarios. The resulting images look better than anything I have ever achieved, with any other lens, camera or system.Very impressive lens!

There was lint on the lens

This is more a review of the condition of the lens than the performance of it. When I received my lens, it was wrapped in a white cloth. When I took off the lens cap, there was lots of lint particles on the lens. I was surprised there was so much lint! Hopefully, it won't affect the performance. I'm not sure who is responsible here: the manufacture or adorama but when I went to the camera store to test out a GH2 before purchase, they put on a brand new lens and there was no lint on it.

A good walking-around lens

By

from Malaysia  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This is an excellent lens for general street images. It focuses quickly and has a good grip for manual focusing as well. It moves from afternoon to night shooting thanks to the wide aperture. I probably will keep this on the Pen or G2 most of the time.

Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 Leica DG Summilux A

By

from Naples, Florida  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I use it as my normal lens. It is bright and clear. Low light photography is easy, Colors are natural and the subjects turn out crisp and sharp. GREAT LENS AND A BARGAIN AT THE PRICE. I sold my Nikon D800 and never looked back. It is light and enjoyable to use.........

Bokehlicious

By

from Bellingham, WA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I have had it less than a month but can already tell I'll be using it more than any other lens I own. Great in lower light situations. Build & optics are great AF is fast and the focus ring is much smoother than the kit lens I have.

One of my favorite lenses

By

from Sarasota, FL  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I love fast lenses. This one is sharp and focuses fast and precise. I usually use a central focus point to focus precisely and then compose. Professional looking pictures.

Very sharp lens wide open

By

from Sacramento, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This lens is very sharp even wide open. I don't use charts to judge the sharpness of a lens so I'm not sure how this lens fares in that kind of test. But when I take pictures of people, I realize that I can count every wrinkle on my subjects' faces. Some of my subjects (mom) don't like this lens because it shows too many wrinkles. There is nothing I don't like about this lens.

Great Image Quality and Build

By

from Irvine, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I shot with a number of prime lenses both from Olympus and Panasonic. This is the one to keep. Outstanding image quality and bokeh with great build as well.

it makes a difference

By

from California  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

At first I thought this lens will probably work the same as the 20mm f1.7 it should being 5 mm more and f 0.7 difference. However as a low light lens f1.4 just give you a little more low light capability. By better is that somehow all pics taken with this lens is so much more beautiful. Can't seem yo figure what makes it better but everybody seeing pics coming from this lens says that pics is better. This lens may be not as compact or light as the 20 mm but it is definitely better in image quality

Outstanding Prime

By

from Denver, CO  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I am old school; still using a Pentax MX with 50 mm 1.4. My wife, however, using the Oly OMD/EM5 with kit zoom. I needed a lens more similar to what I was using. (Yes, I zoom with my feet.) All I can say is "OMG." The photo colors, sharpness and ability to shoot a black cat at night, w/o flash, is amazing. I could not be happier. The Pentax is sitting on the dresser; my wife cannot pry the Oly from my hands. Great product and exceptional service and attention from Adorama.

Great all-around lens

By

from Seattle, WA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I use this with my GH3. The 25mm focal length takes a bit to get used to, but it really is better than a 42mm portrait lens for little kids and fast moving fury animals. With it's shallow DOF and bohak, it may also be the best MFT lens currently available for video. The minuses: it could do a little bit better in low light, be a little bit quieter, and possibly also be weather resistant. I haven't upgraded the firmware yet either, but it seems to struggle a bit with auto-focusing in low light sometimes. The update may help, but I also must state that the manual focus ring is very smooth, much nicer than my 14-42mm Pany, although I don't use MF much thanks to the GH3's complete and utter lack of focus peaking. Would be awesome on a G6 or GX7.
