A bright, normal-length lens, the Leica DG Summilux 25mm f/1.4 II ASPH. from Panasonic is a 50mm equivalent prime for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras. Characterized by its fast f/1.4 maximum aperture, this lens affords notable control over depth of field and is also well-suited to working in low-light conditions. Its optical design incorporates one UHR element and a pair of aspherical elements to reduce spherical aberrations and distortion, and a Nano Surface Coating has also been applied to suppress lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast in harsh lighting. A stepping autofocus motor, along with an internal focus design, contributes to quick and quiet focusing performance for both photo and video applications. Additionally, this lens sports a dust- and splash-resistant construction to benefit working in inclement conditions.
- Micro Four Thirds System
- 50mm (35mm Equivalent)

Love everything but the lens hood
Well made, small and terrific image quality all round. F1.4 is a really useful tool, especially for the Micro-4:3 format for two reasons. First, it's harder to get subject isolation in this smaller format, so speed is the answer. Secondly, recall that anything smaller that F8.0 is not desirable in Micro-4:3, since diffraction starts to impact IQ. So having a fast lens give options. The lens comes with a squared off lens hood. Some will like the look. I don't. But worse than that I'm not sure it's as effective as a simple round hood would have been. But worse still, the hood doesn't reverse. In the Micro-4:3 system, where size and portability are paramount, what were they thinking? Remember an equivalent FF lens would be 2 times the price and size. It's a great lens. Well made, excellent image quality. Small. While I find this hood annoying, I still think this is a 5-star lens. Hope this helps.
Great image quality, sharp and contrasty even at f1.4 Silky smooth focus ring, with the much more desirable rubber finish. Seems to produce slightly warmer colours, compared to the the Lumix lenses, though it might be artificially done in software in camera, I don't have Olympus body to compare. The new added weather seal helps a bit to justify the hefty investment compared to the 25 f1.7
I have had this lens for over a year now. This is the one that seems to stay on the GX8! Fast and very sharp, very good in low light. I have lots of m4/3 lenses lumix and Sigma and this is my favorite. Recommend it HIGHLY.
replacing the panasonic lumix lens with this beat. added to my interview productions. Leica quality in the bokeh
Excellent product and vendor
Canadian review, have not used it yet
only store that had newest lens for gh5
Very nice rendering, this lens is on my camera almost all the time.
Worth the upgrade
I've owned the initial version and loved it. This new version is amazing! I use it with my GX85 witch has the high speed auto focus. This new lens is compatible with the high speed auto focus. Really sharp glass. Plus dust and water resistant. I was hesitant because of the cost, but I'm very pleased with this lens. It's on my camera all the time.
