Pros:Contrast and microcontrast, dimensions (considering that it is equivalent to a 90mm macro), AF (better than that of the e-m10), general rendering, bokeh, ....
Cons:For me nobody, ...., just to want to look for someone in general use the AF is not lightning, but still good enough.
Opinion:The sharpness is excellent, I have not done specific tests, but it has never been disappointing.rnWhich say, it costs more than the Zuiko, which I had at the same time and sold holding the Leica for greater versatility.rnIn the macro environment becomes deadly, for me we are at the highest levels.rnIt is a lens to try and know, otherwise you risk liquidating it based on some data that disadvantage as the price and the maximum opening.rnIn conclusion, as for the 25mm and 15mm, the Leica brand has left something at the level of the project that is perceived in the photos more than in the numbers.rnChiunque has owned the classic 90 macro on FF will be at ease with this lens.
Opinion:my specimen was used, so I do not know the quality of any other new specimens, I was disappointed with the sharpness especially in the most open diaphragms but in fact only that, the images obtained were still pleasant and captivating. I also found that the autofocus was not performing very well. I'd like to try some more examples to understand more. overall rating 8
