Hi, I am new here and thought of asking you a question about Panasonic 14mm lens. I have been reading many threads here last days, and I really like this forum, very helpful and has a nice atmosphere here! Tried to use search also, but still did not find really an answer to this. Sorry, if I am asking something that is well know, I am not so familiar with mFTs yet. I have Olympus E-PL3 and I like it a lot. I have the new kit lens 14-42 mm II, but have not used it really much, after I bought the amazing Olympus 45 mm/F1.8, which I really really love! I think it takes amazing images, but of course it is not a wide lens. I often take pictures in dim light, handheld with no tripod, no flash. I had the much liked Panasonic 20 mm/F1.7 for few days, but returned it... I just almost hated it... I did not like the bokeh at all. I thought the results were week, the focusing many times did not find the focus in cloudy daylight outside, if I changed from far to near objects. Closing the camera or focusing somewhere between helped. I might have used also the C-AF+TR (witch you should not use, found it out here?), but I am quite sure I also shot with S-AF (can't check it, I am not home now). I tested both 45 mm and 20 mm focusing the same spot, and the 20mm image was too unsharp and noisy or something, when 45 mm was great. Maybe I had a faulty lens or just did something wrong, but I did not like it at all. I was very surprised, but in this forum I have read also not so positive thingt of the lens, that I have not found really elsewhere. Of course some images were ok, but just ok, did not see really much difference from the kit lens. Well, I told this so you won't recommend it to me. Maybe I'll take a test sometimes with it later, with another piece, but not now. I actually would like to have the 25mm/F1.4, just fell in love with it yesterday when looking the amazing images here taken with it! That would replace the 20mm. But that is later on, when I get more money, I cannot afford it now. And the rattlesnake noise issue on Oly's made me think twice also... Well, to my real question here: I found really cheap Panasonic 14mm/F2.5 lenses in eBay. But is it worth buying, when I have the new kit zoom lens with 14mm/F3.5? The Pan 14mm is of course much smaller and is a faster lens, but is it enough a reason to buy it? What is the difference in the image quality between these? Sharpness, focusing? I understood that the Pan 14mm focuses very well and fast in low light? Does it work well on Olympus E-PL3? Thanks for any hints and opinions with this :smile: And yes, the 12mm would be great, but cannot afford it either right now .
