Panasonic Lumix S 24mm f/1.8 Reviews

Great lens.

I have this lens on my s5. I'm no pixel peeper, but I think it would be hard to find something wrong with this lens. I like the weight, length, and feel and that it has the same size filter thread as the 50 and 85mm primes. Can't wait for the 35mm to be available. There is nothing wrong with these prime lenses that I can detect. Fault them if you must for not having OIS, but my Lumix cameras all have great IBIS.

Love this lens.

I've preordered the 35mm to complete my S prime assortment (24, 35, 50, and 85mm). These lenses are light, fast, and structurally sound. No complaints, although the 24mm has been the most expensive of the 4 lenses.

Another 24mm lens ? Buy it.....

I was not excited to spend money on another 24mm lens since I have that covered 3 times already with Lumix brand zoom lenses. I ended up testing now all 4 lenses at 24mm along with the Leica f1.7 Summilux 28mm to assess the value of this purchase. Regardless of f stop, this lens was sharper than any of Panasonic zooms with the 24-70mm f2.8 closest in quality. The Leica, as expected was a hair sharper. Image rendering of the new 24mm was very close to the Leica overall feel with a hair post tweek. Out of focus areas were superior to zooms but not exactly Leica. 3 dimensional depth was much better than the zooms but again not quite Leica. Now the real area I appreciated was the mid highlight rendering which really sparkled compared to the Zooms and closely matched Leica. Overall the lens handles great and does not disappoint in any area especially for the money. Having a lens that functions below freezing was one of my prime reasons for going with Lumix system. I am very happy with results and can easily justify the expense since this lens shoots so well at minimum focus. No real aberrations , a little fringing that immediate clears in post. The wide open sharpness and contrast is simply icing of the cake.
