Great Lens

  • Excerpt: I didn't give it a 5 star simply because there is still some noticeable distortion, especially when the suject is less than four feet away and near the edge of the covered area.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight
  • Cons: Distortion

I hope we get more like this...

  • Excerpt: I've recently got this lens as a companion to my 25mm f1.4 for when I need a wider angle shot. For that purpose it works fantastic but what really sold me is it build quality. The 15mm puts to shame my 25mm with it's all metal body, fstop ring, and metal hood.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Nice Bokeh, Rugged, Strong Construction

Great Lens

  • Excerpt: This is a nice lens to have in the kit when you need wide-ish shots indoors. The fast f1.7 really helps when the lighting is dim. To get bokeh you need to be fairly close to the subject, but the results are nice. Metal construction give the product a quality feel as well.
  • Pros: Durable, Nice Bokeh, Rugged

Stellar wide angle prime

  • Excerpt: The Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 15mm f/1.7 is sharp across the frame even wide open, has great color and contrast with creamy background blur. The close focusing ability provides surprisingly good opportunities for subject isolation.

Old school quality.

  • Summary: It's too early to speak objectively about this lens, as I haven't had it long enough to use it beyond dinking around with it at home. And I hate reviews that have nothing to say based on nothing tangible. But...here goes, my own hypocricy in action.

Wonderful Lens

  • Excerpt: Got this lens to use on my new GM5 and I am very happy with it. It focuses really fast even in low light. I have used it to take pics of a 10 month old who can't stand still for a second and it has not missed a single focus. I would highly recommend this for any Panasonic camera.

I love this sharp lens

Henk, B&H Photo
18 December 2014
  • Excerpt: I got this lens out of curiousity, with low expectations due to the somewhat odd focal length (same essential FOC as an iPhone lens), but curious about the Leica cache and rendering. Result: It stayed glued to my GM1 for the next six months, and is still my primary walk-around lens.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easily Interchangeable, Fast / accurate auto-focus, Lightweight, Strong Construction
