Product Description

Product Description

H-X025E

Digital Interchangeable Lens LEICA DG SUMMILUX 25mm / F1.4 ASPH. Based on the Micro Four Thirds System Standard The LEICA DG SUMMILUX 25mm / F1.4 ASPH. (35 mm camera equivalent: 50mm), based on the Micro Four Thirds System standard, features outstanding brightness of F1.4 realized in the compact and light weight profile. The extraordinary brightness allows a beautiful soft focus for photo and video to be even more impressive and encourages users not to use the flash even in dimly-lit conditions. Certified with the name of world-renowned LEICA, the exceptional high image quality is guaranteed.

High Performance and Small Form Factor

When Panasonic developed the Micro Four Thirds System Camera one of the benefits that came with it was the ability to dramatically reduce the size and bulk of the corresponding lenses. Using its expertise in aspherical lens manufacturing and with the cooperation and strict quality standards of Leica AG on board, it set about producing a wide range of lenses that would satisfy a new generation of camera users. Whatever photo opportunity arises, the growing number of high quality, creative lenses available for the MFT system ensures that you won't miss out. Many lens manufacturers now contribute to the fastest growing digital camera system with over 30 models from manufacturers such as Olympus, Sigma, Leica and, of course Panasonic, already available and more being added regularly.

Aspherical Lens Elements

Traditional spherical lenses bend the light at the edges of the image causing distortion or aberration. Aspherical lenses on the other hand overcome this issue by delivering light to a more precise point on the sensor. They also reduce the number of required lens elements meaning lenses can be smaller and lighter. However Aspherical lenses are extremely difficult and costly to produce, so only a small number of manufacturers have the know-how to make them. Panasonic is one of the few lens manufacturers with this capability and therefor can create very high quality yet smaller lenses.


Anti-Ghost and Flare with Nano Surface Coating Lens

In advancement to regular multi-coating lens technology to reduce flare and reflections, the application of a Nano thin outer layer coating virtually eliminates ghost and flare entirely.

Silent AF Motor Drive - Perfect for HD Video Recording

In addition to the fast stepping motor drive the improves the speed of focussing, this lens model also uses an inner linear motor that is almost silent in operation. This makes the lens ideal for use when videoing as no motor noise will be picked up by the microphone.

Ultra Extra-low Dispersion (UED) Lens Elements

An enhancement of the Extra-low Dispersion (ED) lens, Ultra ED are even more effective at reducing colour aberration. By reducing colour aberrations, high contrast and detail is maintained across the full width of the image, resulting in beautiful high quality pictures.

In-Lens Power Optical Image Stabilisation (Power O. I.S. )

Panasonic's extensive knowledge of building highly effective stabilisation in to our professional broadcast cameras led to the introduction of the Mega O. I.S. that compensates for tiny movements of the camera during shooting (up to 4,000 times per second). Power O. I.S. improves that compensation and doubles the effectiveness of shake suppression (when compared with Mega O. I.S. ), especially for low frequency vibrations or when shooting in low light. Panasonic's lens-integrated gyro system ensures power efficient and accurate vibration compensation, matched to each lens, proving its effectiveness time after time.

Extra Low Dispersion Lenses

In a conventional lens made only of optical glass, it becomes difficult to correct chromatic aberration when the focal length is long or the angle of view is wide, thus resulting in contrast degradation or colour bleeding. This problem has been solved by Panasonic's Extra Low Dispersion (ED) lens. It suppresses the prism's colour separation effect to correct longitudinal chromatic aberration at the telephoto zoom setting and chromatic difference of magnification at the wide angle setting. Used to render sharp, high contrast images with clear colours form corner to corner.

High Quality Metal Barrel Construction

Continually fixing and unfixing lenses to your camera body puts a lot of strain on the lens mount. As an important part of the lens barrel, a metal mount is more durable and retains an accurate fixing to the camera body. Resulting in a more reliable performance for many years to come.

By Parka HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 21 Jun. 2012
Note that I also have the Panasonic 20mm and the Nokton 25mm so I'll mention some of their differences.

It's pretty exciting to get hold of the first f/1.4 lens for the Micro Four Thirds system. Thankfully, the Leica brand didn't add a whole lot more to the price tag, although I still think it's a bit pricey.

This lens is like the big brother of the 20mm. It's twice the weight at 200g, and almost twice the height. The construction quality is good, mainly plastic, except for the metal mount. It has a 46mm filter thread - yeah, I can use my 2-stop ND filter from my 20mm lens.

The focusing ring is nicely damp and turns smoothly.

It comes with a carrying pouch and a relatively large plastic rectangular lens hood. You know that 46mm vented lens hood people are using for the 20mm lens? I'm actually using that instead, very little light fall-off and it's much smaller.

Auto-focus is silent and quick. However, auto-focus during movie mode isn't that fast but it's not just this lens. Manual focus is focus-by-wire and it's a pleasure to focus with the responsive focus ring.

The sharpness varies at different apertures. At f/1.4, the corners are slightly blur, centre sharpness is still alright. f/2.8 is tack sharp at centre, with the subjects at corners nearly in focus. The lens is tack sharp at f/4. I use it often at f/1.4 and the images are perfectly alright, provided you don't pixel-peep.

The depth of field is wonderful. Bokeh is creamy. This lens has a shallower depth of field than the 20mm lens. Even if the subject is near to the background, it can still blur the background effectively (more than the 20mm lens). There's a 3D feel to the photos that are shot this way, together with the background blur is very pleasing.

By PeeBee TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 11 July 2013
A lens is not just a lens. There is something about certain lenses which impart a magical feel to images. This is the first lens I have owned on the mFT mount that gives images a beautiful feel and vibrancy. While the Panasonic 20mm f1.7 is sharp and pretty much flawless, this lens adds some pixie dust to the images - they sparkle. In a straight comparison with my 20mm f1.7, the 25mm f1.4 seems sharper still and with much punchier colours and smoother bokeh. The Leica also focuses noticeably faster on my Olympus OM-D. While the Leica is by no measure "cheap", Panasonic has, at least, included a flare guard and bag along with the front and rear caps. You don't always get those, even with high-end lenses.

I know this is sounding like hyperbole, but I genuinely feel this way. I also have a Canon kit and this lens imparts a similar quality to Canon's L lenses. Leica will probably laugh at that as they were there first in terms great lenses. However, in this case, you do get what you pay for. The problem is, it's hard to quantify in words what that extra magic is.

What I can quantify is that the 35mm equivalent FoV of 50mm and fast max aperture of f1.4 make this a very flexible lens, suitable for most conditions. While we are used to zoom lenses to cover all angles, a 50mm prime remains a great all-purpose perspective. And Leica 50mms are legendary. This example keeps the reputation alive.

This lens has taken my OM-D from perfectly competent to outright fantastic. Well worth the money.

I truly love this lens. I am saying this as a professional wedding journalist, street and travel photographer. I have been a full frame pro Canon users for the past 10 years and a pro Leica shooter for two years. I have brought into the M4/3 system just over two years ago when I got the OM-D. But since then, I was only shooting with the equally amazing M-Zuiko 12mm 1:2.0 lens. While that's a quality and sharp wide angle lens, I always wanted something more NORMAL.

At time of purchase, there were only few choices for the M4/3. The Voigtlander 25mm 0.95 or this the Penny Leica 25mm. While Olympus already announced the new 25mm 1.8 prime but it wasn't available as yet. While I didn't mind the manual focus Voigtlander nor the price, I think the Penny Leica has struck gold and offering fast enough aperture and auto focus. Having own the M Zuiko 12mm, I know that the new 25mm from Olympus will be great but at 1.8 aperture, I wasn't too sure. I need at least 1.4 for my work.

Why? As a wedding guy, I shoot a lot of low light stuff, like Churches, reception and often they are poorly lit. Indeed the OM-D or the Panasonic system are already great at high ISO but there's no comparison still after ISO 1600 when compare to full frame DSLRs. While 1.4 also allows a little bit of subject isolation (depending on your shooting distance between you and the subject of course). It acts more like a 2.8 from a full frame in terms of depth of field. But careful framing and getting to your subject a little closer will get you great result.

But boy this lens is sharp and when shot wide open, the bokeh is smooth like butter. You will not regret this purchase indeed.
