Great little lens

  • Excerpt: This lens is very small and light. I use it on my gh4 for both photo and video. Have gotten some great landscape shots with it. The continual auto focus seems very fast when shooting video. I would say faster than the 20mm.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight

Excellent performance for the price

  • Excerpt: This lens is a great performer for street photography. I use it on my OMD EM5 and it produces excellent results. Having the minimum aperture of 2.5 is an advantage when shooting in P mode because you have a greater chance of getting multiple subjects at varying depths in focus. Focus is super fast and the output is very sharp. My only complaint is the chromatic aberration, which I hear is corrected in Panasonic cameras but not in Olympus cameras.

Good, not great

  • Excerpt: Nice to have a dedicated wide lens for the Panny, but 2.5 is only 'OK'. Love the size, quality's not bad, but it's not a '5 star' lens. Too bad, I sent it back. The kit lens is only a stop slower (though bigger).

The Original Must-Have

  • Excerpt: The Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 lens sits in the shadow of two Micro Four-Thirds legends. On the wide-angle front, the Olympus 12mm f/2 sets the standard for image quality. But it's a premium lens, so it probably doesn't drive anyone away from the 14mm. On the pancake front, the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 steals a lot of the 14mm's thunder. If you're here reading reviews about the 14mm, you're probably aware of the 20mm.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight

  • Excerpt: I just acquired this as a used item. I cannot see how it has been used. B&H is great as usual. Mounted to my G3 with a ND filter in front because Texas is sunny, it takes great movies and very fine snap shots..

Great Lens

  • Excerpt: I was looking for a pancake lens to use my om-d as a day to day camera. Chose this over the m.zuiko 17mm 2.8 as it offers a slightly larger fob and aperture. So far no complaints. Picture quality is super clear, lightweight works as advertised. I think you´d have to be preeetty picky or pro to really find any complaints with this lens, especially at this price range.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Not Waterproof

Performs as expected

20 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Decided to go with the Panasonic 14mm to save some money, otherwise would have opted for the Olympus 12mm. Sharpness is good, form factor is great, but the bokeh isn't as nice as the 25mm 1.4.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Lightweight
  • Cons: Poor in Low Light
