Kaiser Soze's reviews
9 out of 10 points and recommendedSharp, Smooth Bokeh, Excellent colorPricey, A bit large on the non-pro DSLRs
Amazing lens. I had the 30mm Sigma and the image quality is night and day. The Pana-Leica 25mm is well worth the hefty price tag. Very sharp at F1.4 and even sharper at F4. I use this lens as a full body portrait lens at F8 with a RAY FLASH on the FL-50r.reviewed December 20th, 2008 (purchased for $650)
9 out of 10 points and recommendedSharp, great zoom range, quick to focus, acurate color renditionNot a fixed 2.8, can hunt in low light, and wish it took 67mm filters
I bought this lens with an E-30 to replace my E-510 and 14-54. The mechanical focus ring is SOOOO much nicer to use the the focus by wire on my 14-54. The best lens range for the price from ANY manufacturer . Outperforms the Canon-Nikon 17-55 lenses at every focal range. I would have liked a bit more speed at the 60mm range (f3.5, or 2.8) but the weather sealing and lightning fast focus make up for it.reviewed April 13th, 2009 (purchased for $1,000)
