Brand new: m4/3 Panasonic Leica 25mm

Brand new, unused, m4/3 Panasonic Leica 25mm f1.4 lens. £300 + RMSD.

Bought on impulse to replace my 4/3 PL 25mm f1.4, but on reflection I'm going to keep the older lens on my E-M1.

Don't blame you as it's a cracker

Good luck with the sale of the M4/3 version, that is a very fair price for a "new" one.

Regards, Simon

Re: Brand new: m4/3 Panasonic Leica 25mm

Its much lighter and smaller, but I actually prefer the feel of a slightly larger lens in the hand.

I went back to the 4/3 version too - heavier and slower focusing, but also sharper and nicer bokeh. Also a special something I can't put my finger on.. That said, the m4/3 version is still top-notch, very small and light and quieter in focusing. Still a very sharp lens, just not quite as amazing as the 4/3 version.

Re: Brand new: m4/3 Panasonic Leica 25mm

Yes, I did sell the 4/3 and have the m4/3 - the size and weight are significant and they are slightly different lenses in concept. The 4/3 is a classic portrait fast lens, being in my view slightly softer at the peripheries wide open. It also makes the most glorious 'kerlunk' from the aperture closing when you take an image - just like a proper Leitz!

The m4/3 is great and I love it, but if you don't mind the size and weight the older one has particular charms.

[Sorry to hijack your sale!]

Re: Brand new: m4/3 Panasonic Leica 25mm

Mulling over this decision. Took the 4/3 PL 25mm on holiday and Virgin were very fussy about the weight of my camera bag insisting on weighing it at Gatwick. I would save weight on going to m4/3 with my E-M1. Does anyone have an idea what an excellent 4/3 PL25mm with bag, box and Hoya Pro UV filter would be likely to fetch?
