Super Sharp Wide/Normal Lens

Fast AF with great image rendition

Kev, B&H Photo
20 July 2015
  • Excerpt: This lens is has extremely fast AF on my panasonic G7. Couple with Depth of Defocus, this special AF will only work on specific Panasonic Bodies. However, I hear it's also fast on Olympus cameras. The aperture is wide enough to get some bokeh separation for half body shots.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Great Image Rendition, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Strong Construction
  • Cons: No OIS

Auto focus is great. Very pleased

Greg Goodman, Amazon
16 July 2015
  • Summary: I bought this with the Panasonic GF7 on the advice of a friend who owns many cameras. I am tired of point and shoot and don't really want an slr. My friend said this lens would get every shot I want within reason. He was right. Low light, bright light. Auto focus is great. Very pleased.

High contrast and smooth bokeh

B. Kiacz, Amazon
1 July 2015
  • Summary: Quite crisp but some vignetting at f/1.7 (which resolves by f/2 or so). This is a noticeably better lens than my old Olympus 17mm f/2.8 and displays higher contrast and smoother bokeh.

... for both stills and video images and I'm quite pleased with its performance

Camarones Jones, Amazon

  • Summary: I have been using this lens with my Panasonic GH4 for both stills and video images and I'm quite pleased with its performance. The focus ring is smooth for those who prefer to focus manually. Panasonic calls it a Summilux, which in Leica terms typically means an f/1.4 aperture.

Great lens

Michael, Amazon
17 June 2015
  • Summary: Don't let the tiny size of this lens fool you. It is very solid and provides creamy bokeh that Leica is famous for. It's a pricey little lens but for low light situations it comes in extremely handy.
