Panasonic Lumix G Leica DG Summilux 25mm f/1.4 ASPH Sample Photos at photodo

"The Leica DG Summilux 25mm f/1.4 lens has the brightest / largest aperture available on a Micro Four Thirds lens available from Panasonic or Olympus, and as such with the Leica quality of manufacture commands a high price of around £489. There also appears to be some purple fringing particularly on the chrome highlights of the cafetiere in the photo above, although other photos, where the aperture has

Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 ASPH MEGA OIS Lens Review review at photodo

"The lens barrel is constructed from high quality plastics with a matte finish and weighs only 165g. The lens mount is also plastic, as is typical with kit lenses like this. The size and low weight make it balance extremely well on the Panasonic Lumix G3 used for testing.

As focusing is performed internally the 52mm filter thread does not rotate during use, making this lens

Panasonic Lumix G X Vario PZ 45-175mm f/4.0-5.6 ASPH POWER OIS Hands On review at photodo

"The new Panasonic Lumix X 45-175mm Zoom lens, is a new telephoto zoom lens for the Micro Four Thirds range of cameras, that is just 90mm long with internal focus and interal power zoom. . . . read more

Panasonic Lumix G Leica DG Summilux 25mm f/1.4 ASPH Lens review at photodo

"Those expecting the solid brass workmanship of Leica lenses for their own cameras may be a little misguided. Saying that the build quality is good, with high quality plastics used for much of the lens barrel and a metal lens mount to provide durability through many lens changes. The satin black finish looks very smart and in keeping with the Leica branding, this lens has an orange '25' decal placed on top of the lens

Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 25mm f/1.4 ASPH Review @ Photography blog

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

Panasonic LUMIX G 14mm F2.5 ASPH Review @ Photography blog

Hard choice, this, or the 20mm f1.7?

"The LUMIX G 14mm F2.5 ASPH lens offers virtually silent focusing which is internal, so the lens never changes length. In use, we have also found the system surprisingly quick on the DMC-G2, and it should be potentially even faster on the DMC-GH2.

Manual focusing is possible in a focus-by-wire fashion. This should not put you off using it as it feels pretty natural in use, and actually enables the camera to display a magnified view of the subject automatically, i.e. without your having to press

Panasonic LUMIX G VARIO 7-14mm F4.0 ASPH Review @ Photography blog

Probably the best wide-angle zoom lens available for any mirrorless mount. It also costs as much or more than the best mirrorless cameras.

"The LUMIX G VARIO 7-14mm F4.0 ASPH lens offers virtually silent focusing. In use, we have also found the system surprisingly quick on the DMC-GH2, though not quite as zippy as the GH2 and 14-140mm lens combo.

Panasonic LUMIX G VARIO 100-300mm F4.0-5.6 MEGA O.I.S. Review @ Photography blog

100-300mm translates to 200-600mm in 35mm equivalent terms. Thats some serious zoom reach.

 

"The LUMIX G VARIO 100-300mm F4.0-5.6 MEGA O.I.S. lens offers virtually silent focusing. In use, we have also found the system surprisingly quick on the DMC-GH2, though not quite as zippy as the GH2 and 14-140mm lens combo. With the focus mode on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 set to AFC, the lens tracked moving subjects well. . . . read more

Panasonic Lumix G Vario 14-45mm F3.5-5.6 ASPH OIS @ DPreview

"A fundamental component of the Micro Four Thirds system design is the use of software to correct certain lens aberrations. For most users this is completely transparent - the camera corrects both the viewfinder image 'on the fly', and the JPEG files it records. Also, both the SilkyPix software supplied with G-series cameras and industry-standard alternatives such as Adobe Camera Raw convert raw files . . . read more

Panasonic Lumix G 20mm F1.7 ASPH Lens Review @ DPreview

"The Panasonic Lumix G 20mm F1.7 ASPH was announced earlier this month as the natural companion to the compact Lumix DMC-GF1 Micro Four Thirds camera, alongside a Leica-branded 45mm F2.8 Macro (the camera is also available with a 14-45mm kit zoom). The H-H020, as Panasonic curiously likes to call it, is a large maximum aperture 'normal' prime in a very compact 'pancake' type body. It gathers a stop and a half more light than Olympus's M.

Panasonic Lumix G Vario HD 14-140mm F4-5.8 OIS @ DP review

"With all this software correction of lens aberrations going on, it's perhaps inevitable that some people will look upon Panasonic's approach as 'cheating'. After all, the argument runs, film camera lenses were always properly corrected optically, so surely the use of software to achieve the same effect is simply cost-cutting, and therefore somehow 'cheating'. We think this is fundamentally the wrong way to look at it. In photography, what ultimately counts is the final image - the means to get there is relatively unimportant. As we've s . . . read more
