Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 Leica D Lens for Four Thirds System L-X025
Thanks so much, Chuck - you're very thoughtful to let John know.
Its on its way via FEDEX can't wait
What will you be using the PL 25 with? Is it a m4/3 camera? If yes, please post some images. Also would like to know how good (or bad) the auto focus is with a m4/3 body.
Congrats on the new toy!
I will use it on my old L1 and with adaptor on Oly E-P2/E-PL1 and Panasonic G1/GF1.
AF on the L1 will be good as far as m43 probably Ok but then I used to the dog slow 12-60SWD on the Pens so slow AF is not a worry
I will let you know my observation's as for images well weather is set to be sunny rest of the week
The lens is in transit should be here tomorrow
I'd read somewhere that the PL25's AF speed is actually decent in a m4/3 body. But don't recall where I read that. If the AF speed on the PL25 is good on a m4/3, the PL25 would likely be the best lens for m4/3 cameras with good AF speed. I have tried the 12-60 on my GH2 as well, and it's super super slow. Same thing with the Oly 50/2.
How's that 25/1.4? I'm excited!! Vicariously anyway! Hopefully, it will AF quickly on at least one out of the four M4/3 cameras you have!
My lens arrived 11AM Thursday.
Gorgeous Lens ...
Many thanks to All at B&H .. I love you guys
AF fast on the L1 and VG on both the G series or the Pens and just gorgeous IQ

Beautiful light and gorgeous flowers - I thought it was fall for you down there?!
John, please be sure to add lots more photos in the image threads taken with this new lens.
Three cheers for B&H's fast and efficient delivery!
Thanks for the info John! Gourgeous photo too. Visited your smug mug site. Very nice photos mate! Well done.
BTW, price on the lens just went up by $50. Good thing you got it beforehand.
Yes its fall BB but the Sun has NOT gone
Oh ye B&H rock
Thanks Armanius ye I got in fast even $50 more is a good buy
On the venerable old Pany L1 AF is FAST
The G1/GF1 --- E-P2/E-PL1 slower a little hunting before AF lock Ok stills landscapes
Street Shooting can't say not tried that YET (talking M43 here) could be ok but I sense the slower AF a little bit of a minus would depend on the subject (people) static or moving well you would know what I mean you take lots of People shots
