Better comparison?
« on: July 08, 2013, 07:20:38 pm »
This a comment for this page on the website
I would have preferred to see a comparison tests against the Panny 20, not the Leica 25. That's the lens most folks, including me, either already have or would be considering purchasing vs. a 17. The 17 and 25 would complement each other in a camera bag.

Can you update this?

The 20mm f1.7 should really be reviewed and tested by DXO. I guess it won't because it's been an embarrasingly long time since its introduction. However, this really is the competition and to complete a more accurate review, one should show how the Pany 20mm f1.7 compares to the Olympus 17mm 1.8.
My guess is we can pretty much assume the Pany is a little better but we'll never get this analysis on this website. Pity.

Thanks for your comment.

the Panasonic Lumix G 20mm F1.7 ASPH is not yet measured…
But for sure we will test the new version: Panasonic Lumix G 20mm F1.7 II ASPH.

Best regards,

The DxOMark team
