Lumix 42.5mm f1.2 lens arrives…”Simply cracking”

42.5mm-top

My Lumix 42.5mm f1.2 lens arrived on Saturday morning and what a cracking lens it is…this will make a fantastic portrait lens and a superb interview lens with the GH3/4. All pictures below are using the 42.5mm f1.2 Leica lens on a GH3.

This is my sisters one year old dog called Sonny…shot at f2 on the GH3

This pic was shot with the GM1 using the 12-35mm f2.8 “X” Lumix lens.

The Lumix Leica 42.5mm f1.2 lens is one of the sharpest f1.2 lenses on the market, certainly sharper at f1.2 than the Canon 50mm f1.2

    This is an interesting point and one that seems often overlooked – that fast m4/3 prime lenses (esp. Olympus prime lenses) are extremely sharp across the frame and have better contrast wide open. They compare favourably to even the best FF fast prime lenses from Canon and Nikon.
    I confidently use my Olympus m4/3 lenses wide open where I wouldn’t dare with my Canon L series glass – the contrast is just too milky.

    Hi Philip – great photos as always. Where does the softbox on the LEDGO 160 come from?
