Panasonic LUMIX G Lens, 25mm, F1.7 ASPH, Mirrorless Micro Four Thirds, H-H025K (USA Black)
About this deal
Panasonic takes pride in the smoothness/polishing of its aspherical surfaces/molds, and it shows here. Pro is very well suited to video capture, providing not just a focus clutch and a focus ring that turns in the direction experienced videographers are most likely to be accustomed to, but also showing no visible focus breathing whatsoever. The lens provides a 50mm focal distance (35mm camera equivalent) similar to that of the human eye when mounted on a Micro Four Thirds camera and takes advantage of Panasonic's 240fps contrast detection AF system.
It does mean that other reviews that give MTF 50 values can be compared across the web, so we can see in theory how review samples might vary. And even on the highest resolution 20MP Four Thirds sensors, its resolving power should leave most users satisfied.Interesting that on forums like this, we have a tendency to argue on the details and ignore the message. does improve center sharpness ever so slightly, but it's honestly difficult to notice the difference even when you're looking for it.
Its images are crisp even wide-open, and the bokeh in out-of-focus areas quite pleasing overall if you can liv For the past few weeks, our readers have been voting on their favorite cameras and lenses released last year. PRO has resulted in a focusing system which is faster and more precise than ever before: It is equipped with an MSC mechanism, it utilizes an inner focusing system that drives the auto-foucs with a single lens element. Only occasionally do they show the slightest hint of a hard edge (more noticeable as you stop down), but not enough to cause any concern. Therefore, no one asked me to do this review, I did it because I was interested to see the performance of this lens myself, and this review is entirely independent.
If you use the lens on older Olympus bodies that can’t correct lateral chromatic aberration, you’ll also see minor green and magenta fringing towards the edges of the frame, but again it’s not very objectionable.
