Panasonic Leica 15mm f1.7

Camera Labs
1 June 2014
  • Summary: The Summilux 15mm delivers high contrast images with very crisp details even with the aperture wide-open. It may not be quite as stunning as the Lecia Nocticron 42.5mm f1.2 in this regard, but it's also a lot smaller and cheaper. There's a small amount of vignetting and corner softness when wide open, but it reduces at f2 and is essentially gone by f2.8.
  • Pros: Sharp, high contrast, well-corrected images. Better than 17mm f1.8., Attractive out-of-focus rendering / bokeh., Good build quality with matching metal lens hood supplied., Manual aperture ring for bodies that support it., Barrel doesn't protrude below base of Lumix GM1.
  • Cons: More expensive than primes of a similar focal length in range., Manual focusing ring was not always as smooth as I expected., No weather-sealing., Aperture ring redundant for Olympus body owners.

REVIEW: Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 15mm f/1.7 Review

  • Excerpt: This new wide angle prime lens for Micro Four thirds system cameras sports a fast f/1.7 maximum aperture, Nano Surface anti-reflective coatings, a manual aperture ring and a switch for directly changing between manual and autofocus modes without halving to delve into the camera's menu. The 15mm focal length provides an angle of view equivalent a 30mm lens used on a 35mm camera.

Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 15mm f/1.7 ASPH lens

PhotoReview
17 June 2014
  • Summary: The fast f/1.7 maximum aperture and associated depth-of-field control are the key features that will attract buyers of this lens since its modest wide-angle coverage is included in all popular kit lenses. Aside from that, the excellent build quality and well-designed external controls will be welcomed by serious photographers. We see this lens as being popular among photo journalists and street photographers who use M4/3 equipment and work in poorly-lit situations.

Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 15 mm f/1.7 kokeilussa

  • Excerpt: Micro 4/3 -järjestelmän yksi vahvuus on kaksi kameravalmistajaa, mikä antaa kuvaajalle muita kamerajärjestelmiä enemmän valinnanvaraa kamerarungon ja objektiivien suhteen. Jos Panasonicin runko ei miellytä, niin voi valita Olympuksen ja jos Olympuksen objektiivi ei miellytä, niin voi valita Panasonicin. Tai päinvastoin, ja vielä kaikki kolmannen osapuolen objektiivit lisäksi.
