Technical Details


Product Description


This Lens will work for any manufacturers interchangeable lens systems using the Four Thirds format. This interchangeable, bright Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 standard lens is a D Summilux Lens made by Leica exclusively for digital SLR cameras with the Four Thirds Standard. It features an ultra-bright maximum aperture of f/1.4 with a focal length that comes closest to what the human eye sees (as in a 50mm lens that is "standard" in 35mm format terms), making this lens ideal as a general purpose "standard" lens for all shooting situations.

Please Note: This lens only fits 4/3rd camera bodies. An adapter is needed (DMW-MA1) to fit Micro 4/3 Cameras.

I got my lens yesterday! I am usually very lazy, but I was so excited about this lens, that i braved a clear windy day in Portland and shot some pictures at night. I am blown away by the performance of this lens. I was able to take night shots like I have never done before. The lens is fast, clear and the autofocus smooth and quick. The aperture ring is a joy to play with (if you have a Panasonic L1 or Leica Digilux 3) and the out of focus blur (bokeh) is remarkable. Its pricey, but its probably the best lens out there for the four thirds format! get it before its gone!

I agree this lens is brilliant - sharp, superb smooth bookeh, and great low light performance. This prime lens (i.e. it is not a zoom) forces you to be in the scene which makes for a more authentic almost immersive viewer perspective as the perspective is very close to the human eye. Similar to Leica street photography - by the way Leica Germany provided the algorithm for the lens design - this lens is based on the Leica f1.4 Summilux lens and also bears the Summilux name on the front - in a sense a Leica lens build by the Japanese to German quality standards. I have had the lens since 2007 and use it on my Leica Digilux-3 SLR (incidentally also build by Panasonic with some differences though). This great lens is my favourite lens and is almost permanently attached. The lens will work with all 4/3 standard cameras i.e. Panasonic L1, Leica D3, Olympus SLRs and for other brands one could possibly use a 4/3 adapter (not sure though). A really great lens, it will be a collector's item one day.

I have some seriously mixed feelings about this lens. On the one hand, it's good, and I love shooting with it. On the other, its price is borderline obscene.

It's an oddity of the Four Thirds system that fast, normal primes are so scarce. There's so little competition that this lens almost wins by default: there's the Olympus 25mm f/2.8 Pancake Lens which is far too slow; the Sigma 24mm f/1.8 EX DG which has a fiddly AF/MF clutch mechanism, isn't designed for four thirds, and is even bigger than the Panasonic (despite being slower); and there's the µ4/3 only Voigtländer Nokton 25mm f0.95, which is almost as expensive as this lens, in short supply (you won't find here at Amazon or maybe anywhere), and is entirely manual in operation.

Of those options, it's obvious that they all have some serious flaws. Optically, the only competitor in the same ballpark is the Voigtländer, but it's µ4/3 only, its price is very close to this lens, and it's fully manual - an interesting lens no doubt, but one with only niche appeal. I wince a little when I say that the Panasonic probably represents a better value than the Voigtländer.

Some details:

- Optically, it's good, but don't expect miracles. Center sharpness is great even wide open, but there's some serious vignetting and corner softness at f/1.4 (perhaps that's really the fabled "Leica glow").

- AF Performance is OK. It focuses quickly enough, the noise isn't excessive, and (for me at least) it's dead-on accurate.

If you're looking at this lens, you know what it is. It's a classic, standard angle, fast prime lens. The low light performance at f/1.4 is great. AF speed is slow though on my E-600. I believe the internal mechanism on the lens itself is slow. It does lock on in some pretty low light situations though (just not quickly). There is some vignetting at f/1.4 and f/2. This is largely gone by F/2.8 or f/4. The lens is pretty sharp at f/1.4 and I would say as sharp as it gets by f/2.8. Diffraction sets in by f/11. I wish it has a DOF on the lens, but I guess you have to buy old glass these days to get that feature. It is on my camera 75% of the time.

It could be my fav lens among all 4/3 AND M4/3 lens as well, the only thing hold it back for that is the size. But I can't complain about that, all DLSR lens with auto-focus are big, and this one's build quality is really really good.
The image quality is awesome, the image it produce has that type of taste of Leica "taste", nothing scientific comparision, it's just my feeling. I have Leica 50/1.4 Summilux, I can feel there are some similar "taste", this Panasonic one has "lighter" color renting though - it's good just different in that sense.

I bought this lens a few months ago from Amazon for my four thirds Olympus E5,E3 and E330 cameras and could not be happyer!!It is fast focusing,and works great in low light and also a great prtrait lens.The price is ok at $899.95 which I paid for it,but I think the $1325.50 is a bit off!!!It is a big lens,but most modern auto focus lenses are much bigger than similar hand focusing(film camera)lenses.
For four thirds the only other prime lens to considder in "normal"focal range there is the Sigma 30mm f1.4 which I understand is quite good too!!
