Panasonic Lumix G Leica DG Summilux 12mm F1.4 ASPH Review (Ephotozine)

Panasonic Lumix G Leica DG Summilux 12mm F1.4 ASPH Review

John Riley has just posted a detailed review of the new announced Panasonic LEICA DG SUMMILUX 12mm f/1.4 ASPH lens at the ePhotozine.com. This new lens has a 35mm-format-equivalent of 24mm, which is a useful, classic prime for street photography, architecture, landscape and sometimes even close up sports. It features such pros outstanding central sharpness, excellent flare resistance, low CA, excellent ergonomic design and dust and moisture resistance.

Verdict from the ePhotozine: “Regardless of the technical results, this is a lens that produces images that look fantastic. Some might argue that’s actually what a lens is for and we need look no further than that. When we do examine the detail, the overall standard of sharpness is very good indeed, but becomes outstanding at the centre over most of the aperture range. This high standard shows up the effects of diffraction with the fairly soft results at f/16 and it is probably a wise decision not to include the option of f/22...”Panasonic Lumix G Leica DG Summilux 12mm F1.4 ASPH Review2
