I use this lens for pretty much everything I shoot, landscapes, people, night time lapses with the milky way, and crossfit sports. Except for far away sports, I always try to use this lens because the images and the videos are always spectacular.
This is an awesome lens. I have the m 4/3 version as well but I like this one better. Only con is the weight and size but the built quality is second to none.
Great walk around lens, fast focus and fast aperture, color saturation very Leica like. Designed by Leica and Panasonic built in Japan makes for an excellent lens at an affordable price.
It could be my fav lens among all 4/3 AND M4/3 lens as well, the only thing hold it back for that is the size. But I can't complain about that, all DLSR lens with auto-focus are big, and this one's build quality is really really good.
My primary weapon is my E-M1 with grip loaded with either the 12-40 F2.8 or my new behemoth 40-150 F2.8. But I also carry an E-M5 loaded with a prime lens for targets of opportunity at weddings and indoor events. For all things indoor natural light, this lens is my goto glass.
I rented this piece for a couple of weeks to knock out a couple weddings and some portrait sessions using my Olympus E-3. Let me start by saying that it's an impressive performer and will give you tack sharp images all the way down at f/1.4.
I was so excited to buy this lenses. Not sharp enough. Buy the Olympus 45 mm (Cheaper and the best lenses) or Panasonic 12-35 or 12-60 if you want to have only one lenses. Worth the extra money.
This lens provides beautiful bokeh and is sharp everywhere. A fantastic lens, I'm happy to see Leica will be producing one for the micro 4/3 mount as well.
After trying all the available 25mm for mtf, I settled on the Leica for image quality build and the way it feels when I shoot with it. Lens lives up to Leica's name, beautiful bokeh and fantast contrast. Sharp images even at 1.4 With MTF I enjoy using the 25mm pov - for me this was good addition.
If you're looking at this lens, you know what it is. It's a classic, standard angle, fast prime lens. The low light performance at f/1.4 is great. AF speed is slow though on my E-600. I believe the internal mechanism on the lens itself is slow.
