Panasonic Lumix G 25mm f/1.7 Overview

By B&H Photo's
Panasonic Lumix G 25mm f/1.7 ASPH. Lens
A fast, normal prime designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, the Lumix G 25mm f/1.7 ASPH., from Panasonic, is a 50mm equivalent lens featuring a bright f/1.7 maximum aperture for enhanced low-light shooting and depth of field control.
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.
The optical construction also helps to realize a compact overall form factor, measuring just 2"-long and weighing 4.4 oz.
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.
Chiaro 46mm 95-UVAT UV Filter

The 46mm 95-UVAT UV Filter is one of Chiaro’s highly-rated protective UV filters with 95% light transmission. It’s useful for photographers of all levels who demand high-quality glass and other essential features for great image fidelity and construction.

To achieve 95% light transmission, Chiaro uses highly-polished optical glass, multi-coating, and additional advanced elements that improve the filter’s light transmission. A hard-anodized aluminum filter ring is designed to screw on and off effortlessly, and it’s thin to prevent vignetting when used with wide-angle lenses.

Image quality is what matters most at Chiaro. The company has tested and combined many features and essentials to achieve superior image quality and the highest light transmission. To help take the confusion out of selecting a filter, Chiaro prominently displays the light transmission levels so you can choose the perfect filter for your lens and photo session.

95% Light Transmission
Protect your lens while maintaining optical quality. By using highly-polished optical glass, Chiaro offers a 95% transmission rate. And the company verifies the ratings with ISO certified lab testing.
Polished Optical Glass
Highly-polished glass is essential to achieve a high level of light transmission. The optical glass in this Chiaro filter is polished for flatness that ensures great optical clarity.
Multi-coating enhances light transmission to the demanding level set for all Chiaro filters. It reduces unwanted internal reflections and ghosting that can compromise your images.
UV Protection
The filter blocks UV light and reduces the bluish cast of daylight that can affect color accuracy, especially at higher altitudes.
Hard Anodized Aluminum Construction
The process of hard anodizing toughens and strengthens the aluminum for a lightweight yet durable filter ring.
Slim Design
Measuring only 3.2mm, this filter is slim enough to use on wide-angle lenses without experiencing vignetting.
Top Knurling
Top knurling is designed to offer a firm grip on the filter when you're attaching or removing it.
Secure Attachment
It takes two full turns to mount the filter on your lens. This feature will securely hold your Chiaro filter through the most demanding photo shoots.
Front Threads
The front threads on the filter allow you to stack filters by screwing them onto your Chiaro filter.

I Miss This Lens

By Hugh
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2023-06-07

I owned one of these before and, for the life of me, I have no idea why I sold it. It was fantastic then and it's fantastic now. Attached to my Panasonic GH5, It's very light, UHD video is sharp and clear (the way I like it) and colors look fantastic. I will more than likely be reaching for this lens for much of my video work. I'm glad I purchased this again and I won't be selling this one.

Great Budget Lens

What can you say. Tack sharp. Good bokah, small and fast, for the price of a good dinner. It sits on my backup Pani, and is mostly the A lens for low light, sure I'd like f 0.95 but a lot more money, if I was doing a lot of weddings, low light, then I'd pony up for the extra stop, but for my run and gun news stuff its great.

Pretty good lens for the price, although when doing video there was a focus problem but it would catch the focus in less then. minute. I moved around a lot videoing live musicians. other than that it's pretty fantastic. the shade ring does not fit this lens I do not know why they include it

I am so glad I bought this over the Lumix 25mm 1.4 version. The whole reason I bought into the MFT system was for how light and compact it is. This with the GH6 doesn't disappoint. I still have full frame systems including, Nikon, Canon and Sony. This is so much more fun to use and the image quality is very acceptable. I plan on using it in some of my professional work now that I have had a couple of months to evaluate and learn the GH6.

Love this lens

I'm fairly new to photography and I've been getting to know my camera pretty well. I was frustrated because I just wasn't getting sharp and clear photos. This lens is a game changer! It gives amazing lighting in dark / indoor conditions, the focus is so good, and the bokeh is also great! Far from disappointed with this purchase. I'm happy it didn't break the bank too

Im from Canada, will the Manufacturer's warranty still be covered even item is bought in the US?
Asked by: Arman
According to the terms and conditions on the Panasonic Limited Warranty form, the warranty only applies to products purchased and serviced in the United States. As such, for warranty repair issue needs, you would have to send the lens back to Panasonic in the United States, as the lens does not have international warranty repair from Panasonic. If you need international warranty repair, I would recommend considering purchasing one of the SquareTrade Extended Service Protection Plans offered on our website once you click the blue "Add To Cart" button on our website.

How much better in low light is this than the Panasonic 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 in terms of what ISO the camera needs to be set to get the same results?
Asked by: MASAITIS
The 25mm f1.7 will allow you to substantially reduce the ISO needed for a proper exposure. This will be an estimate as I don’t know exactly what the maximum aperture of the 14-42mm f3.5-5.6 is at 25mm (and you are giving up the flexibility fo the zoom), but it should be approximately f4.5. Increasing the aperture at 25mm from 4.5 to 1.7 is a gain of approximately 3 stops. So what needed ISO 3200 on the zoom will require only ISO 400 on the prime. Or reducing an ISO 800 shot to only ISO 100 (although most m4/3 cameras only go down to 200 or 160 as their native or lowest ISO so you could increase your shutter speed too!). Just looking at shutter speed increases, if you needed 1/50th of a second on the zoom, you can shoot at 1/400th second with the 25mm f1.7. Hope this helps.

Yes it will. This lens compresses images and offers a shallow depth of field and angle of view which is most suitable for medium and close shots.
