First Look Video & Images: Panasonic 12mm f/1.4 Summilux Lens for Micro 4/3
UPS guy just dropped off a lens I have been excited about trying out. The new Panasonic Leica 12mm f/1.4 Summilux for Micro 4/3 has landed! Literally, just about 2 hours ago.
Since I have yet to seriously shoot it or use it, I just made a first look and thoughts video, and have 2-3 images I snapped for fun to see the character…and I like it so far. The build is solid, the style reminds me of a baby Noctilux or Nocticron and the focus is very fast. As fast as I would ever need. I would guess that this beats the Olympus 12mm f/2 for pop and pizazz even though I’ve always loved the Olympus. This guy is a new beast. Larger, feels great on the camera, has a manual aperture dial (for use on Panasonic cameras) and the contrast and color appears to be fantastic in my initial tests.
So enjoy the video below, and look for my full review of this lens soon! Also have a full review of the Olympus 300mm pro coming and a Sony 70-200 G master review!
