Pros:Sharpness, , made colors, light, rendered to all openings,compactness.
Cons:Don't get it before.
Opinion:What to say, everything I would have expected that such a small lens would have such a high quality, already at F 1.7 is sharp on almost the entire frame, the only bad thing are the chromatic aberrations always at full opening but are resolved in CR. I can't wait to go around shooting indiscreet for street in my opinion is the maximum, I have to try this genre . On olympus om1 mk2 the autofocus is very fast and the leica rendering is not discussed I immediately noticed the difference in colors between the panaleica and the zuiko. The blurry is beautiful and enhances the foreground with a cinematic effect. I'm finally upset with an optics that excites me, too bad I didn't take it sooner.
Pros:Size; weight; Constructive quality; brightness; AF/MF button; Openings; focal length; AF speed; Made in Japan; Yield to all openings; Minimum focus distance; Bokeh; Fast manual focus ring; extraordinary total absence of the barrel effect
Cons:It causes envy in those who do not have it, it leaves little room for other optics that are likely to go into disuse. Un-tropicalized and unde stabilized?
Opinion:Dimensions perfectly in line with the m4/3 philosophy, it sticks out just 20mm from the G80 shape! Its footprint is practically uninfluential. Weight so minimal that it does not unbalance the camera grip (also due to the size) Construction quality worthy of a handcrafted artifact of maximum precision; Brightness 1.7 that allows you to use the ISO 200 camera in the interior with ease. Convenient af/MF button that allows you to speed up the steps between the two modes in an even more intuitive way. Physical diaphragms, very convenient for those like me who use diaphragms as a starting point in the settings. A very good focal length: from contextualized portraits to landscapes to contextualized and full macros of Bokeh AF instant and precise. Made in Japan ardent as the name LEICA engraved on the front. Great (for my needs) the color yield, sharpness and contrast throughout the frame and all the openings. The reduced focus distance (about 14cm from the sensor, but declare 20?) that allows you to make "macro" photos contextualized with a bokeh effect for the M4/3 system and for the focal length in question. The focus ring is fast and accurate, so it allows fun focus games while shooting. Total absence of barrel effect, great for photos of architectures and especially interiors. It's not tropicalized, why??? There is no stabilization, maybe this is irrelevant to the focal length in question (considering also the stabilized sensor) and maybe the choice was made to contain the price and weight? Vabbé is a p0' wanting to climb on mirrors to find flaws...
Pros:Sharpness, metal construction, small lampshade, rendered on colors
Opinion:The most beautiful thing about this lens are the colors it returns, typical of panaleic. The construction is excellent and the presence of the diaphragm diaphragm diaphragm a small treat for vintage lovers. The disused note is the chromatic aberrations, sometimes very invasive. I shot a video that I uploaded to youtube where article better my review:https://youtu.be/sKZOGq3HUMI
Pros:Sharpness, image quality, build quality, versatility, compactness, aperture ring
Opinion:I Write this review after a couple of months from the purchase and after a photo workshop of several days, in which I could pull this lens in different conditions and in different contexts. Verdict: I'm in love with it. Thanks to its focal length I managed to photograph from the landscape to the portrait set, passing through the street without any problems. Initially I was undecided between this lens and the 25 f1.4, but after having tried them both I had no doubts: optical quality practically on par with a fantastic sharpness and contrast that makes the photos live both in color and black and white, but the increased responsiveness and Qu and the 10mm plus made me the easiest choice. Since then, I have practically no more detached from the machine. Turning to the ergonomic side I appreciated the compactness (I can keep it in the pocket of the vest fitted to my G80), and the aperture ring, very comfortable and by romantically analogue usability represents the icing on the cake.

Pros:Size, speed, aperture ring, little digital output.
Cons:Any limit on the AF on GX9, the firmware fault ever updated?
Opinion:Excellent lens for the M4/3 system, one of the must haves because you can really do everything from portrait to landscape, passing through the street and architecture. The yield is little digital on Panasonic bodies, while on Olympus it seems to me an artificial hair. Autofocus good but not lightning on GX9, probably should update the firmware stationary, from what I know, the same with which it came out on the market now almost five years ago. It handles colors and microcontrast well but the best gives it in B/w conversions. For anyone who wants to use the M4/3 system at best, compulsory purchase.
