  • Nice lense, arrived on time and well packed
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Jblevins - December 28, 2019

    This lense was a little cheaper at Amazon, but I was willing to come to BBuy because I have had perfect service and professionalism with them for years, and I wanted to be sure I was getting a real lumix lense and not a knock off from Amazon. A couple of bucks literally is well worth it.

  • Consistently sharp and compact standard lens - Street and tr
    Reviewed by Max Zappa - June 23, 2016

    The jury is out on what focal length of a lens most closely represents the view of the eye. The issue is complex and is compounded, in my view by the fact that humans use 2 eyes and see in 3D whilst a camera lens is a single 2D lens. After a bit of personal testing I concluded that for me at least around 43mm would be about right, which led to the choice of the 20mm f1.7 II for the micro 4/3, being 40mm equivalent in 35mm terms. This is a cracking lens, very versatile and sharp with little distortion. Its sharp wide open and only really starts to lose its edge beyond f10. Optimal sharpness across the frame is in the range f4 to f5.6. For me this is a great street lens, you can shoot all day at f4 outdoors with sharp results and if you fancy a landscape shot ,set f8, focus on 12 ft and you will have a sharp image from 6 ft to infinity. Indoor shots present no problems, with f1.7 sharp and with a pleasing bokeh. Whilst not image stabilised, this short pancake lens is really easy to hold steady, such is its compact and lightweight design. An absolute cracker.

    This is a great lens for Micro Four-Thirds cameras. Lots of light, nice image quality and pretty compact, but not that thin.

  • Compact Standard Prime Lens
    Reviewed by Silverscreen - February 1, 2015

    I have been using this lens for a couple of weeks in a variety of outdoor conditions and I cannot find a fault with it. It sits beautifully on my G6, almost allowing the camera to fit in my pocket. The angle of view gives natural perspective. Pictures taken at f1.7 gives stunning results and whilst not delivering the same out of focus effect as the standard prime on a 35mm camera (something to do with physics) , the results are nevertheless pleasing. The lens performs equally well throughout its aperture range, and I cannot see any problems at f16. One area where it excels is with shots against the light. Try as I may, I could not introduce flare. The manual focussing ring gives just the right feel and focussing is easy using camera focus assist. You do not get any camera shake assistance with this lens but I suppose that would have added to its dimensions, and with a lens of this size and focal length, it should not be a problem. I said at the beginning I could not find fault, but if I must, the lens cap is a bit fiddly.
