    Excellent bargain

    |
    Posted .

    I purchased this open box. I probably should have asked for extra off because it was missing the lens cap and base cap, but the package said it was in excellent condition and that there weren't any missing accessories. Overall it's a very good prime. The plastic build doesn't bother me and it's super light weight. Fantastic aperture. Mostly excellent photos. Paired with Olympus EM10 MII. No problems with autofocus.

    Must Have Lens

    Posted .

    When I bought my Lumix G7 I loved the Fact that it came with the 14-42mm Lens which was Amazing but Being a Youtuber i needed something more close-up and Focal. This Lens was the best to Do That. Amazing price and Worth the Price.

    This is a perfect lens for beginners wanting to start in portrait photography. I originally bought this as a backup lens however it is now easily my new favorite. The depth of field control on this lens is unmatched for this price.

    Good First Prime Lens for Pictures and Video

    |
    Posted .

    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.

    This lens does its job. I was able to get great video quality and it is “just about” as great as an expensive lens. It’s light and makes the camera more compact. All it’s missing is the image stabilization.

    Best Buy Had It In Stock...

    Best Buy had this lens in stock — the big "warehouse" store in NYC did not. So, I've learned to check with my local Best Buy before committing to ordering from New York. Been using this lens for about 6 mos. now. Really no issues. I use it with a Blackmagic Design Cinema 4K Camera for in-studio video capture. Very sharp. Great DOF.
