  • Excerpt: Priced at around £540 pounds and bearing Leica branding, this 25mm lens has a bright f/1.4 maximum aperture, internal focusing, Nano Surface lens coatings to reduce ghosting and flare and it offers the same field of view that a standard 50mm lens would do on a 35mm camera.

  • Excerpt: Given that Panasonic 25mm carries the Leica name it is reasonable to think it will be more expensive than its peers. It is also reasonable to expect that it should be something a bit special, but...

Panasonic Leica Summilux DG 25mm/F1.4 Lens – Review

Leica DG Summilux 25 mm f/1.4 ASPH.

  • Excerpt: When you start a system kind of from scratch you must make sure its potential users have several basic lenses available. We think here not only about an all-purpose kit lens but also about a fast, classic standard so the equivalent of 50 mm device. The moment the Olympus company decided to launch its 4/3 system they must have been aware that they would have to launch a lot of new lenses as well.
  • Cons: distinct coma,, too high vignetting by f/1.4,, the edge of the frame near the maximum relative aperture could have been sharper.

  • Excerpt: Jasny, stałoogniskowy obiektyw standardowy to doskonałe uzupełnienie obiektywów typu zoom. Wyśmienicie sprawdzi się również jako nasze podstawowe szkło - ułatwia fotografowanie w trudnych warunkach, często zachwyca parametrami optycznymi. Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 25mm f1.4 ASPH to właśnie taki obiektyw, zapraszamy do zapoznania się z pierwszymi wrażeniami z jego użytkowania.

  • Summary: Patrząc na system Mikro 4/3 całościowo, widać że Leica DG SUMMILUX 25 mm f/1.4 ASPH. bardzo ładnie wpasowała się weń, znacznie poszerzając możliwości wyboru. Gdy ktoś nie potrzebuje bardzo jasnego standardu, ma możliwość zakupienia naleśnika Panasonic 1.7/20. Gdy ktoś potrzebuje czegoś naprawdę jasnego i nie przeszkadza mu manualne ustawianie ostrości, może zainteresować się Voigtlanderem 0.95/25. Leica jest niejako pośrodku.
  • Pros: bardzo solidne wykonanie,, rewelacyjna jakość obrazu w centrum kadru włącznie z maksymalnym otworem względnym,, dobra jakość obrazu na brzegu kadru po lekkim przymknięciu,, dobrze korygowana aberracja chromatyczna,, niewielki astygmatyzm,, dobra praca pod ostre światło,, cichy i skuteczny autofokus.
  • Cons: wyraźna koma,, za duże winietowanie na f/1.4,, brzeg kadru w okolicach maksymalnego otworu mógłby być ostrzejszy.
