I never buy stuff for immediate need. I buy
it when it goes on clearance. Sooo for those
who've been limping along on nothing but a
zoom lens or two, "Hear Ye, Hear Ye !" :

A Panasonic 25/1.7 is only $150 lately so I
ordered one, and having checked it out, it's
a keeper:

AF is very quick, at least on my Pen-F. I didn't
use it on anything else yet. There's practically
no corner shading at f/1.7. None at all as seen
here at f/2.8, and for the peepers, here's the
central and corner areas at original rez:

Acoarst the subject matter in the corner doesn't
all lay in the focus plane at f/2.8, but I can see
enuf to find that for real world shooting it's way
more than good enuf, even ignoring the bargain
pricing

Nice & sharp photos.
Looks like that lens is a keeper.
For $150, its a steal.

You can't tell or check chromatic aberrations with an image or purple glass frames

The huge problem with real world pix is that they
often fail to accentuate all of the horrible flaws
that we all know in our hearts render our bargain
lenses useless .......

Here's a few more failures from my trashy lens:

Three perfect case studies of what happens with
faces shot using a normal lens.

Sooooooo ...... all kidding aside, you

of the purple glasses lady.


Look close enuf and it's there:

ZIPPER 4X.jpg


......... there, but hardly there


All pix taken within minutes of each
other, so all at f/2.8 and at ISO640.
