Panasonic Lumix G 25mm f/1.7 Overview

More than just the lens, the Panasonic Lumix G 25mm f/1.7 ASPH. Lens with Lens Care Kit from B&H bundles the normal prime with a lens cleaning kit.

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. One UHR (Ultra-High Refractive Index) element pairs with two aspherical elements to reduce spherical aberrations and distortions for consistent edge-to-edge sharpness and illumination. A Nano Surface Coating has been applied, too, and helps to reduce flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color fidelity. The optical construction also helps to realize a compact overall form factor, measuring just 2"-long and weighing 4.4 oz. Benefitting both stills and video capture, this lens also incorporates a stepping motor for smooth, quiet autofocus performance that is compatible with Lumix cameras' high-speed contrast-detection focusing systems.

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.

Panasonic Lumix G 25mm f/1.7 Reviews

An outstanding prime lens for the price.

Even at the list price (and I bought it on sale) this is an outstandingly good lens. Even wide open it produces very sharp photos with very little degradation at the corners, and even one stop down is becomes completely sharp across the field. (This is visually, at anything up 300% magnification; I'm sure an optical bench would find some faults, but we mostly take photos to look at, don't we?) The lens is surprising light, but doesn't feel plasticy and the mount is metal. The focusing ring is smooth in action, and has just the right feel. The internal focusing is almost noiseless, as is the diaphragm. Two minor quibbles. 1) I'd happily pay a dollar o r two more for a lens bag. 2) The so-called decorative ring that serves only as a covering for the lens hood bayonet seems an unnecessary item (lens bag instead please!) and is surprisingly difficult to remove, and once off will likely live only in the box the lens comes in. The lens hood, once attached is decorative enough either in reversed position or in functioning position. And the lens is small enough that even with the hood mounted in functioning position, it still takes up very little room in a bag.

Cheap and high quality

We use both Fuji X and Micro 4/3 lenses for our cameras (zcam, pocket cinema, fuji). I am extraordinarily amazed on the performance of these cheap Panasonic lenses when compared to expensive Fuji counterparts. If you need a good and cheap prime for interviews, that produces nice blurry background, this lens will not disappoint.

Better & sharper than kit lens

Simple all around lens. Good enough for portrait photos and walk around city. Sharp and bright photos. Great budget lens.

Very Nice Lens For The Money

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.

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.

Enjoying using this prime lens on my Gx85 with great result. Perfect piece of kit.

I was giving up hope on my Panasonic GH4 which had a 45-105mm f/4. The video quality was very poor and grainy because of the aperture. I wanted to be able to shoot in low light. After much research, I decided to try this lens. It was amazing! I won't be able to list all the benefits of this lens, but it has certainly turned my camera into a great piece of gear. I highly recommend it!
