A very good lens

Summary: Ordered both black and silver versions for my GX8 and GX7 and they work flawlessly. They give very good sharpness, contrast and clarity overall and have better build quality then my Leica 25 & 45. The only downside I have seen so far is a bit high in CA when shooting in the sun!
Summary: I'm not a pro-tog. I just travel a lot (different country each month) for work and fun. My use-case is mainly to Instagram and make cool short videos for social sharing with friends. I go out a lot at night, so I also need a good low light lens since I prefer not to use flash.
Excerpt: Great lens for the GM5. Nice and compact, great optics, sharp, and perfect for scenic/street photography. Now I can carry a tiny camera that takes great pictures and with an aperture of F1.7 can create a shallow depth of field.
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.
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.
