This review is from: Panasonic Lumix 14mm f/2.5 G Aspherical Lens for Micro Four Thirds Interchangeable Lens Cameras (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Electronics)
As a serious photographer for over 30 years, I sometimes expect too much from a product. In the case of the Lumix lenses, I've tried to keep my expectations in check with the limitations of the M4/3 system, relavent size, and price of each item.
In the case of this lens, I'm very impressed. I took it on a trip overseas, and considering the weight and very small size, it greatly exceded my expectations. Photos are sharp into the corners on all but the wide-open aperture shots...and on those wide-open shots, it's still hard to complain about lack of sharpness. Colors are snappy.
If you're into "camera/gadget nut aesthetics", I'd say that this lens looks rather dinky on my Lumix G3. I imagine it would look more at home on a GF3.
I would also like to point out that this lens feels so light, it seems I've doubled its weight by adding my customary B+W haze filter.
