    Do you guys think that the Panasonic G3 and Leica 25mm 1.4 D lens will make a great combo for low light picture taking?

    I think I'm going to preorder both but want to make sure that they'll work well together.

    Thanks!

    In the m4/3 world, the G3 + PL25 might be the second best low light combo. I think the GH1 still has the best DXO scores for low light performance for a m4/3 camera.

    Yes, and equally effective with lots of light...:smile:

    Do you think that combo will be good for landscapes as well??

    I'm hoping with this combo I won't have to change lenses too often unless it's a big zoom lens or something.

    If I owned that lens it would never come off my camera. You can always zoom with your feet.

    Sweet! Sounds like I'm on the right track. I'm hoping that the G3 w/ that lens will fit in my FZ100 bag. I just put pre-orders in for both, can't wait!

    I think the lens might be a touch too big, but you'll know soon enough.

    Yes. I use the GH2 and Nokton 25mm and it's a great focal length for landscape.

    Understand though (I don't know how much experience you have), when you use primes for landscape you have to 'think' much more... (Which is a good thing once you get used to it)
