    Features

    Lumix® G Micro 4/3 LEICA DG SUMMILUX 25mm/F1.4 ASPH. Lens is designed for use with Lumix G Micro 4/3 cameras. It provides an angle of view similar to a 50mm lens on a 35mm or full-frame digital camera, and the wide f/1.4 maximum aperture can deliver beautiful, bright photos and videos with softly out-of-focus backgrounds. Built to Leica's usual high standards, this lens delivers excellent image quality with minimal distortion or chromatic aberrations, with a sturdy metal mount.

    Nano Surface Coating minimizes reflection over the entire visual light range, resulting in sharp, clear images with very little ghost and flare. The use of the Ultra High Refractive index lens and glass mold aspherical elements helps the lens maintain superb uniformity edge to edge. Seven aperture blades form a circular aperture for very pleasing out-of-focus areas in your images.

    H-X025 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from fastest lens I own. A week after the purchase of the 25mm f/1.4 Panasonic/Leica lens I took a trip to Chicago and this was the only lens that I took. Now I would never tell someone who hadn't used a lens before to rely on a brand new item of equipment, but that is just what I did. It was my first trip to Chicago so it was important for this to work and boy did it. We rode around on a double decker touring bus, and I shot from the upper deck. The shots came out great and I was very happy with the purchase. When we went to an art museum it did well in the dim lighting. One photo I took of a man looking at one of the paintings turned out to be one of the best photos I have ever taken and I have been shooting since 1959. I would have missed the shot if this lens hadn't been able to lock on focus the moment I pressed the shutter. The subject was there and then the blink of an eye it was gone. I saw the photo, I took the photo and then the subject moved on. Any other lens and I might not have gotten the image. This lens is fast focusing and tack sharp.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lens for Micro Four Third System I bought this lens to use with my Lumix GF7. This does produce very nice quality picture. I love the effect of blur background with focus on the object and this lens help me does all that. At 25mm it is great to take portrait as well. I would totally recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best prime for micro 4/3 I've tried quite a few of the micro 4/3 lenses from all the major manufacturers and this one delivers the pro-level quality that I require. In addition to its obvious wide aperture, it's corner-to-corner sharpness is terrific. And it's rendering of images fits into the "Leica look"camp very well which may not fit everyone's tastes, but certainly fits mine. Highly recommended!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing lens Very sharp and bright lens, with excellent bokeh, even compared to my Lumix G 20 mm f/1.7 pancake lens.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very sharp, beautiful rendering. One of my favorite lenses for the micro four thirds system. Though bigger, a bit heavier, and more costly than competing f/1.8 and f/1.7 primes, it earns its nearly inscrutable reputation. I regularly use it from f/1.4 through f/11 and find it to be very sharp at all apertures, with center sharpness peaking around f/2.8 and edge sharpness peaking between f/2.8-f/5.6 depending on the scene. Good for a wide variety of subjects, whether the light is good or poor.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every penny... Just diving into the MFT systems, and this was the lens to get...so far it has met the expectations, and cannot be happier about choosing this baby to start with the right foot! Size and weight are something to consider, but it's well worth it...Panasonic and Leica nailed it! The f1.4 is just amazing, and the construction of the lens is top class!!!

    • How do I install firmware in my camera using an SD card?
      Digital Still Camera Firmware Update Guide.

      1) Preparation before attempting the update.

      A. Make sure the camera's battery is completely charged. If the battery is not completely charged the firmware update will not begin. Format the SD memory card in the camera, then take a couple of pictures.
      B. Turn off the camera.

      2) Copying the Firmware to your memory card.
      A. Download the latest firmware update for your model by clicking on the "Download Ver. X.X " link to a location on your computer (we recommend the "Desktop").
      B. If your computer has a media reader, please insert your formatted SD Card from your camera.
      C. Open the zipped firmware file that you downloaded to the desktop.

      D. For"PC" users, locate your SD Card by clicking on, or opening the"My Computer" or"Computer" on your desktop or your"Start" menu. For"Mac" users, can use"Finder" if the drive does not mount to your desktop.

      E."Drag" to Copy and Paste" the .bin file from the opened folder to the drive with the SD Card showing in your"My Computer" window for"PC" users and"Finder" or"Drive" in Macs. This will copy the file to the card.

      F. If you choose to leave the SD Card in your camera, connect the camera to the PC with the USB cable. Turn the camera on and set it to"Playback" mode. Then select"PC" on the LCD screen. Drag the .bin file from the opened folder to the device that either says Panasonic or mass storage to complete the transfer.

      G."SDXC cards, 32GB or larger, require special card readers. Depending on your PC, and the age of its operating system, you may not be able to directly write to such large cards. If your PC asks you to format the card, DO NOT, this is one indication that your system is not compatible with the newer larger memory cards. In this case a smaller card, 16GB or smaller should be used.

      3) Updating the camera's firmware.

      A. Turn the Camera off, insert the SD Card if you copied the firmware to the card while inserted into the computer.

      B. Turn the Camera power on and press the"Playback" button. The camera's LCD screen should now be showing a screen asking if you desire to"Update" the firmware. Highlight"Yes" and press the"Menu/Set" button.

      C. When the Camera has completed the firmware update it will turn itself off and then back on.

      D. This completes the update process.

      4) Confirming the update.

      A. Turn the camera's power back on.

      B. Set to"Playback" Mode.
