  1. Wow. What a great comparison. The Olympus 25 definitely wins on smooth out of focus transitions compared to the Panasonic lenses.

    What’s interesting to note is that even though the Panasonic four thirds D 25 lens, being big as it is, doesn’t do any better than the m43 version in any aspect. It’s a hell of a lot bigger even without the adapter with its 62mm filter thread. Can anyone chime in if it’s even worth getting if you are a m43 user?
