Panasonic Takes the Wraps off Brand New Lumix 25mm f/1.7 at IFA 2015 in Berlin

lumix_25mm

Great news for Micro Four Thirds shooters from Germany this week. This 50mm equivalent lens is available for 'preorder' for $298 from B&H. 

It isn't a very exciting looking'd about the most boring looking lens Framed Planet has seen in some time, but it's got a silent motor which should be good for video and Panasonic say the lens is aimed at 'enhanced low light shooting and depth of field control' although that is basically marketing gibberish for 'it's a f/1.7' 

If you do preorder, there's no word on delivery times yet so you may have to be patient for a while or hold off until they tell us more.
