Both Kirk Tuck (on his blog) and my friend Thorsten Wieszniewski (with email) lately reminded me of my standard lens, which is a Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 25mm/1.4 on my Olympus E-PL5 “Pen”-type camera. And to both I replied that yes, it’s gorgeous, and one of the best we have. My blog header photo shows me using it, and take this quick snapshot for instance:
Small purple bucket. Mixed light: daylight in the foreground, flash in the background.
Noticed the bokeh from the small standby light on our TV set? Here it is at 100% for all of us (you) pixel-peepers:
Perfectly round at f/2 which I used here, isn’t it?
It’s my go-to lens, and because I have the 50mm macro on my DSLR, this 25mm rarely leaves my mirror-free smaller camera. It’s just that good.
Thanks for reading.
