Note that I also have the Panasonic 20mm and the Nokton 25mm so I'll mention some of their differences.

It's pretty exciting to get hold of the first f/1.4 lens for the Micro Four Thirds system. Thankfully, the Leica brand didn't add a whole lot more to the price tag, although I still think it's a bit pricey.

This lens is like the big brother of the 20mm. It's twice the weight at 200g, and almost twice the height. The construction quality is good, mainly plastic, except for the metal mount. It has a 46mm filter thread - yeah, I can use my 2-stop ND filter from my 20mm lens.

The focusing ring is nicely damp and turns smoothly.

It comes with a carrying pouch and a relatively large plastic rectangular lens hood. You know that 46mm lens hood people are using for the 20mm lens? I'm actually using that instead, very little light fall-off and it's much smaller.

Auto-focus is silent and quick. However, auto-focus during movie mode isn't that fast but it's not just this lens. Manual focus is focus-by-wire and it's a pleasure to focus with the responsive focus ring.

The sharpness varies at different apertures. At f/1.4, the corners are slightly blur, centre sharpness is still alright. f/2.8 is tack sharp at centre, with the subjects at corners nearly in focus. The lens is tack sharp at f/4. I use it often at f/1.4 and the images are perfectly alright, provided you don't pixel-peep.

The depth of field is wonderful. Bokeh is creamy. This lens has a shallower depth of field than the 20mm lens. Even if the subject is near to the background, it can still blur the background effectively (more than the 20mm lens).

The 25MM Lumix Leica lens is a solid prime lens that will give you a "general purpose" lens with superb quality at a fair price.

It's not a wild stretch of the imagination to figure that most people considering this lens are thinking "this one or the 20mm which is cheaper". There's a lot of misguided rationalizations being tossed around here with people saying that the 20mm lens is fine and this lens isn't worth buying if you already have the 20mm, or that f1.4 vs f1.7 isn't worth the ~$200 premium - but you'd be missing the point.

The differences between the 20mm and 25mm lenses isn't merely a few specs. They both have their own distinct characters that they impart onto the pictures you take. The people who can appreciate this are the ones whose pictures you see and say "wow, that's amazing". The people who try to condense these elements into a mere comparison of specs or clump of pixels zoomed in 1600% are missing the point by far.

For reference I am using this lens on a Panasonic GH2 camera.

Optical Quality
-------------------
The glass used to make this lens and the resulting images it produces are among the best of the best. A lot of people are saying that the Leica name is just stamped on there for marketing purposes, but since the lens is manufactured in Japan that it's not a "true" leica lens. I won't deny that there is a marketing and branding component here, but now that I use this lens and have seen the results it is capable of for myself, I can say it's worthy of that name.

Have you ever seen a picture of a person that seems to tell a story? Well, you can take those kind of pictures with this lens.

Before reviewing the lens, I would like to comment about the price. First off as of right now this lens is selling for over the 599USD MSRP. Unless you are making a living off the m43 system and need it to make money, I would not say it is worth paying over MSRP. Second, I see a lot of people comparing the price of this lens to Nikon and Canon 50mm lenses. While this lens has a 50mm equivalent crop it is still a 25mm lens and wide lenses are more expensive to make (Additonally, I believe neither of the 50s has aspherical elements while this lens has 2. These elements are far more expensive to make Also, this lens has Nano coating while those don't). Nikon 24mm f/.1.4 - 1999USD Canon 24mm f/1.4 - 1661USD Leica 24mm f/1.4 - 6495USD. While I am not going to claim it is in the same league as those lenses, it is still a very nice lens at a reasonable price.

The only real reason to purchase this lens is to shoot at f/1.4. If you don't plan on doing that then I would recommend the 20mm f/1.7 for less money. The main reason to shoot at f/1.4 is for a shallow depth of field(DOF). Low light is obviously another reason but shallow DOF is the primary. This lens is blindingly sharp in the center. It loses the sharpness in the corner but most of the time I want the corners to either be bokeh or go soft to focus the attention on my subject. The DOF on this lens is roughly 2 stops wider than a 50mm f/1.4 lens on a FX sensor and 1 stop wider than a 35mm f/1.4 on a DX chip. For me this is actually a benefit. I found 50mm f/1.4 on a FX sensor to be so narrow it was hard to get my fast moving children in focus. Also, if I was taking pictures of both of them, if they were even slightly out of plane then one of them was out of focus.
