    Show us your Panasonic 25 portraits or other f/1.4 shots

    Please show us what your Panasonic 25mm can do wide open with portraits, anything from full height to head shot, or other shots that you have that will show off the shallow DOF capabilities and bokeh.

    I rarely shoot wide open for portraits so this won't show either but it is an example of a portrait with the 25.

    I don't know Tom... There is a "Fun with the..." at the first page of the forum. The PL25 is very much like a 50/2.8 on a FF camera, ie, it's not a lens made for any kind of particular shallow DOF. That said, here is a reasonably recent one of my better half, taken in Barcelona while waiting for the food at some place (yes, all that is irrelevant). Maybe f/1.4 or f/2?:

    I've posted this photo before, but here's the non-processed jpg conversion (with 3-stop ND-filter)

    Here is another one, a street shot taken when looking at the audience at some event. Maybe I posted it earlier somewhere:


    EDIT: Sorry, I just checked and the image above is taken at f/2.8 so far from wide open. OTOH it is cropped, at all edges.

    Not to worry. Thanks for taking the time to share.

    Tom

    Wide open this lens is amazing. Not so much for depth of field as for sharpness. The only other lens I have owned which is this sharp wide open was my now dear departed Leica 35/1.4 asph.

    I have posted this before but look at the reflection in the sunglasses:

    Here are two shots not at the max aperture, but at F2.5, natural light inside of a restaurant (there were windows on both sides) :
