      Monster bang for the buck

      I’m an Olympus shooter, but BB had this lens on sale for $149 and I just happened to need a 25MM M43 lens with a large aperture. I have taken about 300 shots with the lens and the results are very pleasing. I see a little bit of corner softness when I get around F4, but nothing that you could tell unless you are super critical. I have had no major issues with chromatic aberations or Flare, but I did not shoot at the sun or super bright lights a lot given the portrait value of this lens. I’m extremely happy with it given its price, especially against the $349 Oly lens. You can’t beat the bang for the buck on this one. I have a lot of the Oly Pro lenses and those are fantastic, but you are talking > $1K per pop on those. Only drawback on this is that it is not weather sealed like the Pros, but for $149, you can’t beat it.

      Good First Prime Lens for Pictures and Video

      I bought the Panasonic Lumix G 25mm f/1.7 Lens to go with my new Panasonic GX85. The picture and video quality was a huge improvement versus the included kit lens. I recommend every Mirror-Less or DSLR Camera owner should at least have one Prime Lens with an F stop lower than two such as this one in their kit. The pictures/videos are sharper and clearer. Also you can take nice Bokah type photos and video. The Lumix G 25mm lens is equivalent to a full frame DSLR's 50mm prime lens = also known as the nifty fifty. Which is a must have if you plan to spend time to take photos and videos.

      Really awesome lens. I am a novice/amateur when it comes to photography and this is my first lens that ive purchased, and first lens that isnt my stock lens. I would highly recommend it to anyone that is trying to get a fast prime lens. Takes really nice and sharp shots. Like i said i am an amateur/novice so i may not have as much of a devoloped eye as someone who has been doing photography for a long time and may not be using this lens to its full capacity but i still feel like it is a awesome lens that is worth having in the arsenal.

      I have the Olympus 45mm 1.8 on my camera but it is too long for indoor shots. I bought this Panasonic lens and the image quality is equivalent to the Olympus 45 but at a focal length more suitable for my indoor shots. It would be nice f it was as small as the Olympus lens but it is still small for what it is. Compare it to a Nikon or Canon lens of the same focal length and f-stop. The Nikon or Canon will be much heavier too. I bought this here at BB on sale and what a great deal it was.

      Lumix G 25mm f/1.7 ASPH

      The Panasonic Lumix G 25mm F1.7 is rather big compared to other MFT lenses. It is only a little smaller than the Panasonic Leica 25mm F1.4 and it is significantly longer than the Olympus 25mm F1.8. But overall the Panasonic 25mm F1.7 is still a compact lens.The lens mount is made of metal, but the rest of the lenses exterior is made of plastic. However once mounted to the camera the build quality of the Lumix 25mm 1.7 seems alright. The focus ring of the lens is also well damped.

      Bought this for our Panasonic G7, which is mostly used for making videos. It's very sharp and at 25 mm this is equivalent (in Micro Four-Thirds format) to a standard 50mm, the all-time favorite all-around focal length. And at f1.7 it's very fast, so I need much less light and can shoot in more settings while keeping my subject cooler. Also the price on sale at BestBuy was unbeatable. No negatives to this lens at all.

      Best Sub $800 Camera for Hybrid Use

      This camera is a fantastic entry level camera for both video and stills. The M4/3 mount and sensor is slightly limiting, but for 95% of most users out there not using higher end gear, this will be more camera than they can probably use. The video capabilities are fantastic. The only downside to this camera is that the G85 is now out, and it comes with In Body Stabilization and doesn't have a limit on record time in video.

      Another great and affordable prime lens from Panny

      Everyone will eventually need a 50mm 1.8 for their photography needs. And this very affordable Rome from Panasonic is perfect. The Leica counterpart is more expensive and I have heard this one holds its own quite well. And after trying it for my gh4 and g7, I couldn't agree more. It really is super quick, sharp and crisp. Handles 4K video very well also. Highly recommend this prime.
