Re: Panasonics 42,5mm f1.7 lens rocks!

Just found one "used-like new" on amazon at an attractive price a couple of days ago, should be here in a few days. I'm hearing nothing but good about the stabilization on it.

Re: Panasonics 42,5mm f1.7 lens rocks!

@Steve - It's here and you're absolutely right, I love what it does. I have the Olympus 45mm f1.8 and would like to put that one up for sale but that lens is not bringing much on the used circuit. Reckon I'll hang onto it as a "spare".

@Noa - It was your original post about it that got me to seriously considering the Panasonic 42.5mm f1.7, your "test" video pushed me over the edge.

Thanks.

I wish panasonic would make more of these primes, if they can fit stabilization into that little 42mm then it should be possible to make a 25 or a 75mm as well.

A medium and wide prime of equivalent quality to the 42.5 Nocticron would be nice.
