Summary: Leica is one of those brands that needs no introduction. They have an almost legendary reputation in photographic circles. With this lens Panasonic managed to package Leica glass at an "affordable" price. The lens has been pretty much glued to my new Olympus OM-D EM-5 camera. I have taken hundreds of pictures of kids, static subjects, moving subjects, dogs, plants, etc. All came out simply amazing.
