Excerpt: I bought the Lumix G 14mm f/2.5 for my Blackmagic Pocket camera because I do not own any other micro 4/3 mount lenses. We bought this lens so that we can fly it on our freefly cinestar 8. Great build quality, sharp and its fast enough for what we shoot.
Excerpt: I use this for wide shots w/ my BMPC and it works great. No visible warping of any sort. Focus and iris both work great in compatibility with the on cam controls. The lens has a great depth of field when focused near or far. Only issue would be that the focus ring rotates endlessly, although much more expensive lenses do as well. However it doesn't take much rotation to focus throughout its range.
Excerpt: I use this as an everyday walk around lens. Initially I purchased it over the Lumix 20mm because of it's compact size, but I use it more than the 14-42mm kit lens and my 40-150mm zoom because of it's fantastic image quality. Focus speed is great. Great build quality and while superficial combined with the E-PL5 it is a great looking set up. Not really a complaint, but it would be perfect if it was f1.7 like the 20mm. But considered by itself it is a great compromise.
Excerpt: Photos don't do this lens justice. It is absolutely tiny - about the same size and weight as the rear cap off a full-sized DSLR lens! It's not the most impressive optically but it makes up for it by being so small and light. I just slip it in my pocket and it's ready to go whenever a wide angle opportunity presents itself. Stop it down to f/5.6 for the best optical performance or shoot it wide open and enjoy the vintage look.
Pros: Compact, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
Excerpt: I recently bought this tiny pancake lens for an upcomming trip to Hong Kong. I needed a very light, fast and portable wide angle for street photography on the busy and packed streets over there. What I can say about it is that it takes sharp photos and is so light you forget it's on your camera. I use this for landscapes Street photography and urban scenes but basicly it's my 28mm equivelant lens for anything candid too.
Pros: Fast / accurate auto-focus, Sharp optics, Stealthy, Super Light, Tiny, Well priced
Excerpt: I use this lens in conjunction with two other prime lenses: a 25mm f1.4 and a 45mm f2.8, Together they give the classic trio or fast wide, standard, and long lenses for walk-around photography. They have the advantage over zooms of being smaller, lighter weight, sharper,more contrasty, and having much better low light performance. The 14mm pancake is particularly small and light-weight, but gives superior image quality.
Pros: Compact, Contrasty, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Good in low light, Lightweight, Sharp
Excerpt: The lens takes tack-sharp pictures without distortion. You can put the camera and lens in your pocket. In addition to the usual uses, this lens is good for grab shots, quick up-close candids, and creative shots using wide-angle distortion. The lens is fast enough to take night shots with the fast Panasonic DX1 camera.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Rugged, Strong Construction
Excerpt: this is my first purchase for my e-pm1 and so far i'm very happy with the image sharpness and cost.. the f2.5 let's in more light which produced good pictures indoor and outdoor,i can't wait to take more pictures with it..
