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.........
Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 ASPH LEICA DG SUMMILUX review by graben

Summary: Before the Olympus 25mm f1.8 was available this was the only game in town for auto-focus. It renders beautifully, what is in focus is sharp and what is out of focus is dreamy soft. My favorite lens.
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.
Excerpt: At first I thought this lens will probably work the same as the 20mm f1.7 it should being 5 mm more and f 0.7 difference. However as a low light lens f1.4 just give you a little more low light capability. By better is that somehow all pics taken with this lens is so much more beautiful.
Excerpt: I am old school; still using a Pentax MX with 50 mm 1.4. My wife, however, using the Oly OMD/EM5 with kit zoom. I needed a lens more similar to what I was using. (Yes, I zoom with my feet.) All I can say is "OMG.
Excerpt: I use this with my GH3. The 25mm focal length takes a bit to get used to, but it really is better than a 42mm portrait lens for little kids and fast moving fury animals. With it's shallow DOF and bohak, it may also be the best MFT lens currently available for video.
