Verdict

The Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 25mm f/1.4 ASPH is a very desirable lens. The important center resolution is already on a very good level straight from wide open aperture. The border quality is decent but the corners are softer here. The quality is very high across most of the image field when stopping down to f/2.8. However, the extreme corners remain only "good" here. Lateral CAs as well as distortions are all well controlled and not relevant in field conditions. In addition, the quality of the bokeh is very good.

Typical for a fast lens, the vignetting is somewhat disappointing at wide open aperture and this applies also to the corrected RAW files. The build quality is very good and photographers as well as movie enthusiasts will appreciate the fast and silent AF operation. The Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 25mm f/1.4 ASPH is undoubtedly an great option in the micro-four-thirds system but unfortunately not cheap.
