Summary: It's not my walk around lens - that's the Lumix 25mmk f/1.4 Leica lens on the Oly EM1. But I carry this 14mm in a pocket and thus never miss a shot requring a wide field of view. Very sharp images. Bought it used from Asia via Amazon. Very satified.
Summary: This lens is so tiny you can easily take it with you everywhere or add it to your normal walk around lenses. There really is no reason not to add it to your lens collection. It's so unobtrusive that it's easy to get photos of anything you want without people feeling intimidated. A great buy and a practical tool.
Highly underrated lens, but requires a pro eye for photography
23 November 2013
Summary: Only capable of great things in an experienced photographers hands. This lens was just recently discontinued and pansonic is no longer shipping them to distributors. Naturally, the price of the lens shot up 50%. I purchased 3 of these lens's over the past few years, none for more than $135. If you are paying more than $140ish for this lens, you got a bad deal and are a victim of supply and demand. The supply on this lens is very low, thus the hike in price recently.
Sharp wide open, fast AF, super small, lightweight and great price
30 October 2013
Summary: This little lens packs a punch with performance, size and price. Incredibly sharp starting at wide open and doesn't stop till about F8, due only to diffraction. Because its a wide, AF is super fast. So small and lightweight, you hardly notice its in your kit bag, let alone can be place on any pocket while walking around. Makes your M4/3rd cam super light as a bonus as well. With the price its going on Ebay, this small wonder is a no-brainer!
