    As per the title really.

    I often look on camera price buster and they have two 25mm lens' listed.

    Panasonic G System Lenses Price Comparison From

    - 25mm f1.4 Leica D Summilux (Priced £439-£909)
    - 25mm f1.4 Leica DG (Priced £419-£478)

    Not really looking to buy one (famous last words) but I've seen it many a time and just curious.

    Yeah, "D" is Panasonic's term for 4/3, and "DG" means µ4/3.

    It's like Zuiko vs M. Zuiko for Olympus.

    As a weird side note- the Zuiko lenses used to have a letter before it to designate how many elements the lens had.

    Ah, thanks for that. I hadn't even thought of that as a possibility!
