  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

So far, so good.

  • Summary: I bought this lens to battle it out with my Voigtländer 42.5mm f/0.95, and Oly 45mm f/1.8 lenses, along with seeing if it does in fact out perform my Oly 75mm f/1.8. When I saw it drop to the open box/like new price, I jumped.

Gorgeous lens! Sharp, fast to focus, beautifully built. There's not much to dislike with this lens.

  • Summary: Gorgeous lens! Sharp, fast to focus, beautifully built. There's not much to dislike with this lens. The wide aperture delivers rich, creamy bokeh in the out of focus areas at the shallow depth of field that f1.2 brings. Love this lens.

  • Excerpt: Rented both this lens and the Voigtlander 42.5 0.95...liked AF and handling of the Lumix but in the end the Voigtlander was the winner...All of us 4/3 owners relish that full frame look of extreme beautiful bokeh.

Superb lens. Worth every Shekel.

  • Excerpt: Great lens.. NO! Fantastic lens! Fast in focus and light gathering, gorgeous bokeh, and SHARP! However the shade being metal is plain AWFUL, particularly when you have new age plastics that will absorb shock and are more resilient.
  • Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Microtome Sharpness, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Bad Lens Shade

Just magnificent! An IQ Monster!

  • Summary: If you really want to get the absolute most out of your MFT camera, this lens will help you do just that. Its so pleasing and fun to use. The 3D like renderings are matched by very few and far more expensive lenses out there. Very fast AF for a lens of this quality. It is a "go to" lens.
