    Cons: Corner sharpness surprisingly weak for a prime lens and didn\'t visibly exceed that of my not outstanding 14-42 Mk1 when tested carefully and compared at 1:1.

    Pros: Small, quite well-built, and focuses much faster than the 20/1.7.

    Summary: Why bother? 2.5 isn\'t fast enough to outweigh the performances in optical performance even if you really love this focal length.

    Cons: Flare when you put sun or lamps in the frame. Notiseble vigneting than you make panorams stitshing single images.

    Pros: Weights and sizes close to nothing. Sharp when you use CA correction.

    Summary: Good for movie and any amateus usage as wideangle lens.

    Cons: corner sharpness not that great, but if you stop down a little improves considerably.

    Pros: sharp center, smallest serious m4/3 lens, cheap

    Summary: a perfect pair with 20/1,7 especially if you prefer primes instead of zoom lenses

    Cons: - Small, small, small - Sharp center, even wide open - Fast focusing - Flare resistance - Mounts inexpensive 46mm filters, same as my Summilux25 - Inexpensive

    Pros: - Weaker borders - Need to be stopped at least at f4

    Summary: This lens gets mediocre ratings, if it wasn't for the weak borders it could deserve an excellent rating. Of course this is not the lens you would use for professional architecture photography where corner to corner sharpness is critical, but the center is noticeably sharper than the expensive Oly 17mm f1.8, if you can stop at f4 the borders are really decent. Build quality is fine, not outstanding, but the smallish barrel and the metal mount make an almost undestructable package.
