Panasonic Lumix G Leica DG Summilux 25mm f/1.4 ASPH lens review by Kurt Munger: The Panasonic Leica DG Macro Elmarit 45mm F/2.8 ASPH turned in a nice performance; there really isn't much to complain about

Panasonic Lumix G Leica DG Summilux 25mm f/1.4 ASPH

This lens is really one of the reasons a seasoned street photographer should look into the mirrorless movement:

"The Leica DG Summilux 25mm f/1.4 ASPH lens offers almost silent focusing, and in use, we have found the system very quick on the new DMC-G3. The 46mm filter thread does not rotate on focus, which is good news for users of polarisers and graduated neutral density filters. . . . read more
