A top flight lens, sharp as a tack and fast too. Leica quality images!
4 November 2014
Summary: It's not an inexpensive lens, but the difference between this and say a kit lens is simply day and night! Sharpness is astonishing with excellent contrast and color rendering. The fast f/1.4 capability make this ideal for capturing a beautiful bokah when selectively focusing. This same speed also makes this a prime lens for low light photography.
Turns a complete amatuer into a pro overnight! A must have for m4/3 cameras
26 April 2014
Summary: Turns a complete amateur into a pro overnight! I thought my GF5 was a very good camera before this lens, but now the difference is like day and night. I couldn't be any happier, it pays to buy the best, I am ordering a new GX-7 tonight!
Excerpt: This is an excellent lens for general street images. It focuses quickly and has a good grip for manual focusing as well. It moves from afternoon to night shooting thanks to the wide aperture. I probably will keep this on the Pen or G2 most of the time.
Excerpt: I use it as my normal lens. It is bright and clear. Low light photography is easy,Colors are natural and the subjects turn out crisp and sharp. GREAT LENS AND A BARGAIN AT THE PRICE. I sold my Nikon D800 and never looked back. It is light and enjoyable to use.........
Excerpt: I have had it less than a month but can already tell I'll be using it more than any other lens I own. Great in lower light situations. Build & optics are great AF is fast and the focus ring is much smoother than the kit lens I have.
Excerpt: This lens is very sharp even wide open. I don't use charts to judge the sharpness of a lens so I'm not sure how this lens fares in that kind of test. But when I take pictures of people, I realize that I can count every wrinkle on my subjects' faces. Some of my subjects (mom) don't like this lens because it shows too many wrinkles. There is nothing I don't like about this lens.
