Re: Olympus 25mm f1.2 PRO vs PanLeica 25mm f1.4

I owned the 25/1.4 and 25/1.8 at the same time and did lots of comparison shots between them. Whilst the 1.4 delivered slightly more background blur the difference wasn't enormous. In sharpness terms there was nothing to choose between them.

So, I sold the 1.4 purely based on size and weight. It seems the new 50/1.2 is about the size of the 12-40 which makes it 2-3 times bigger than even the 1.4. In mu43 terms that's huge for a short prime. It's definitely not a lens on my shopping list. If I need more DOF separation I'll just use the 45 and step back.
