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.
Pros:compactness, optical output, character, AF speed, aperture ring
Opinion:Spectacular target. It produces images with a very special stamp. The blur, although not exaggerated or easy to get (cause sensor M43) is beautiful and very cinematic. Excellent sharpness even at full aperture, it is true that presents a bit of aberration in backlight, but nothing unforgivable or incorrigible view especially the size. Strange focal length, but that made me make peace in my eternal indecision between 28 and 35 equivalents. Coupled with another longer optics (in my case the 45mm, but I'm considering taking the 25 always Panaleica), is a spectacular double to use for anything.
Pros:Sharpness, brightness, build quality, excellent AF, lightness, total automatism with Panasonic machines
Cons:Some slight aberration in particular light conditions, but nothing unmanageable. Ineffective aperture ring with Olympus machine bodies.
Opinion:I own and use this lens on my Lumix G9 and GX8. The quality of the sensor is maximally elevated by the sharpness of this ' glass '. Exceptional chromatic response, precise aperture ring and with automatism, AF excludable and precise, build quality in the best Leica tradition and produced in Japan. I have other lenses, Canon and Panasonic, also professional, but the Panasonic 15mm 1.7 Leica DG Summilux is by far what I prefer. The lightness but at the same time the robustness of the lens are perfectly matched in particular with the GX8. In the hands the whole thing seems ' light ' but instead you have a precious and precise photographic tool. Appropriate for street, reportage and portrait. Equivalent in FF to a 30mm, it offers a very natural angle of field and close shooting with minimum distance of MAF of 20 cm. Excellent sharpness at TA, it reaches its maximum already on values between f 2.8 and F4. Able to give always and however images of high quality, density and detail, is obviously a bright lens that ' sees in the dark '. Particularly recommended for the Lumix system.
