    Hollyhocks, taken with my GH-2 wide open at f1.4. Can you believe how sharp this mother is?

    If anyone around here has kept their 20mm I'd love to see some comparison shots using that and the 25mm.

    The 20mm is still getting good prices on eBay for sellers so it is not a big investment to change. But is it worth the extra weight and size after one has become used to a pancake?

    EDIT. I push the limits flarewise with the 20mm. Does anyone find the 25mm more tolerant?

    Louis, that's a beauty!

    Here's one of my son celebrating his 18th birthday at the cigar bar.

    Taken on my GH2 at 3200 ISO. 1.4 at 1/8 sec.

    It is difficult to justify owning both the 20/1.7 and the 25/1.4 but I did it! The 20 has several advantages over the 25 - it is cheaper and it is smaller. However, performance wise you'd be hard pressed to choose between them. That is why I can't bring myself to part with the 20/1.7.

    So did I.


    Here's one of my older son, Jacob, from last night.

    Wonderful shot, Ron... I think it's my favorite portrait that you've done. Uber cinematic!

    Nice portraits, Ray and Ron.

    Hmmm... the sales girl at the camera shop? Maybe I should consider changing

    My feelings exactly. It doesn't really look to me like it's worth that much more than the 20, especially without OIS built-in.

    I read somewhere that the 20mm is actually closer to 18.5mm thus equating to 37mm in FF. Certainly owning both lenses I see a considerable difference in FL over and above the 5mm (or 10mm whichever) that one would expect. This of course then gives a very different perspective. I figure in FF terms I own a 35mm and 50mm lens. and I love them both.

    Two very different lenses with both shining in their field.
