This is a very highly rated lens by Panasonic and built for Micro 4/3 cameras. We get loads of video footage shot with the Panasonic Lumix 14mm 2.5 to see for ourselves what we can expect.
This footage was shot by pro photographer Ferhan Khan. An it is very good quality footage I might add.
The Lumix 14mm f2.5 is a very small pancake style lens that is sometimes included with several Lumix cameras kits. The lens is also available separately for purchase. It’s produced in the same style of top selling 20mm f1.7 prime but is much quicker at focusing and produces a wider angle of view in a slightly smaller package.
Ferhan Khan’s opinions of the lens: A few months after use I have to say this is a super lens in terms of optical quality and value. Many reviews have highlighted the distortion and vignetting present (as it is with most wide angle lenses) however in practice I found it fairly minimal and totally manageable.
He hopes you find his video review useful although not very technical in terms of facts and figures. For me such a cheap lightweight lens like this that produces very good imagery is all that counts.
