1 June 2007
Summary: The Leica D 14-50mm is certainly a unique proposition: it is after all the only optically stabilised lens in the Four Thirds fit at the time of writing. So if you have a Four Thirds camera and want a stabilised lens, you literally have no other choice.

Pros: The only Four Thirds lens with stabilisation., Good optical and build quality., Brighter focal ratio than kit lens., Analogue style aperture ring.
