Description
FS: Panasonic Leica PL 25mm f1.4

The consensus that Olympus 25mm/f1.8 is cheaper, just as sharp, low light and bokeh performances are insignificantly different compared to the PL25. IMO the PL25 is more than marginally better on bokeh and low light performance; the color rendering advantage of this lens is not a myth. How does it compare to Olympus 12-40mm Pro, "the prime killer", at the same focal length and aperture? I was very surprised at the comparison.

The following two samples were shot within a couple of minutes of each other. I performed these shots at night so that natural light is out of the equation. They are unmodified out of the camera JPEG, downsized to 1600x1200.

Here is the O12-40 shot at 25mm at f2.8. The prime killer lives up to its reputation for image quality.

Here is the PL25 shot at f2.8. I found that the PL25 shot is sharper, has more pop and contrast, and the rendering of the air grill inside the bistro near the center of the frames very interesting.

Here is what you get...

Panasonic/Leica 25mm f1.4 -- Bought last autumn and used very little because I found that this is not my focal length. I use my 14, 17 and 45 trinity primes 90% of the time.
Better than 9.5/10, this lens always has a protective filter on after it was unboxed. The elements are spotless, and the body has no scratches.
Comes with original lens hood, front and rear caps, pouch, box and documentation.

Does anyone know how to take close up of shiny dark subject without picking up dust?

For fun, sample shots from my shootout between my PL25 and a friend's O12-40. Enjoy.
