Designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, this lens provides a 50mm equivalent focal length to represent a normal perspective.
Fast f/1.7 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also enables extensive control over focus placement for selective focus applications.
One UHR element and a pair of aspherical elements help to achieve even illumination and sharpness for consistent performance throughout the aperture range.
A Nano Surface Coating has been applied to individual elements to noticeably reduce lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.
Stepping motor delivers fast, smooth, and near-silent autofocus performance to benefit both still photograph and movie recording applications.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm produces a smooth out-of-focus quality when working with shallow depth of field techniques.

Needed a replacement for my Sigma 19mm and this fits the bill. Quick, sharp focus and stopping down to 2.8 everything is sharp uacross the frame. Not worried about low light. Used it for landscape and street with no problems. Thanks Panasonic.

Images comes out great! But...

I use this lens with the Black Magic Pocket CC 4K. If I leave the lens on and turn on the camera, everything works great. But if I change the camera setting (like switching from 4K to HD), the lens will start to make clicking sound (and the electronic iris will not work. As in the option to change the iris just disappear.) I usually solve this by twisting the lens tighter. Or just shut off the camera, take out the lens and then putting it back on, then turn the camera on. Other than that, images looks great!

Really solid medium lens.

The Pany 25mm lens is a size that I didn't have and when the great sale price came along, I jumped on it. The lens is sharp and B+H gpt it to me in just a few days. Good work folks.

Very Nice Lens For The Money

By Robert

Nice little lens. Its plastic construction, but feels very sturdy. The lens hood performs well and mounts backwards when in your camera bag. The aperture and IQ are what you would expect from a decently priced prime lens, that is to say very fast and very sharp. Overall very satisfied. This lens and the Panny 14mm f/2.5 are a great combination.

Hard to beat for the price

I shoot 50mm prime a lot in my work and recently bought a Lumix G9 as my go to knock around camera for when I'm out riding. Paired it with this guy on the cheap to get a feel for camera capability especially in low light. I stacked it against my feels like meter relative to my Nikon Z5 + 50mm prime power duo. Honestly the low light and clarity is fantastic especially for the price point. I love that the depth of field is so forgiving. It makes getting bokeh while doing run and gun very easy if you push composition but not overbearingly so. Back off and getting isolation without the background totally falling apart is straight forward. It's sharp, fast, and cheap enough you can take it anywhere you wanna go and feel relatively safe. I'd recommend it most for street photographers or portrait photographers getting started in their careers.
