  • Panasonic 25mm f/1.4 ASPH LEICA D SUMMILUX

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Sharp, Smooth Bokeh, Excellent color
    Pricey, 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.

  • Olympus 12-60mm f/2.8-4 ED SWD Zuiko Digital

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Sharp, great zoom range, quick to focus, acurate color rendition
    Not 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.

  • Olympus 35mm f/3.5 Zuiko Digital Macro

    9 out of 10 points and recommended
    Sharp, Light, small, with excellent magnification
    Could be faster, noisy when focusing

    Best dollar for dollar macro available for any system.
    Sharp images with good contrast and clean bokeh.
