The LUMIX 25mm (35mm equivalent 50mm focal length) is the the lens that many creatives use as their main prime lens. The angle of view from this lens is roughly the same as the human eye so it allows you to capture the scene as you see it. The large f/1.7 aperture ensures more light will reach the camera sensor meaning you can continue to use your cameras in a wider range of conditions, so you can more images and more video more often. This lens is ideal for portrait photography, street photography or just the everyday world in which we live with great colour handling and a sharp resolution on your LUMIX camera. A fast aperture of f/1.7 allows you to capture a shallow depth of field in your image that allows you to really seperate your subject from your background and give you creative control over the look and feel of both your still images as well as your video.
