Pros:
  • good image quality in the frame centre,
  • good image quality on the edge of the frame,
  • lack of problems with the longitudinal chromatic aberration,
  • low lateral chromatic aberration,
  • no noticeable problems with spherical aberration,
  • very low coma,
  • moderate astigmatism,
  • fast, silent and accurate autofocus,
  • good price/quality and price/performance ratio.

Cons:

  • high vignetting,
  • performance against bright light on stopping down leaves a lot to be desired.

Solid – it is perhaps one word that fits the tested Panasonic 1.7/25 the best. There are no fireworks but also no slip-ups. In many categories you see good or at least decent results; add to that a very sensible price and you get a lens even more worth recommending than the more expensive and a tad slower Olympus 1.8/25. It is really a good endorsement and if you need an instrument of this type you should check this one out.
