Mine would be the Pana 20mm - focal length not too long, not too wide, sharp and super compact. If size weren't an issue then I'd choose the Olympus 17mm f1.2... if I owned it
The Panasonic 20mm pancake is a fantastic lens. Mounted on a smaller body (e.g., GM1), it makes a great combo for street shooting. I had the PL 25mm f1.4 and sold it because I never used it - the 20mm is so small, I always slip it into the camera bag.20mm pancake. Good for lots of things, including environmental portraits. Works well for panoramas on the wide end too.
Well, maybe every 20 comments (once per page). There kind of is such a bot in the sense this thread---and many like it---could have been set up with polls. For example,I wish there was a bot that read all the comments and gave us a list of lenses with number of recommendations in descending order after every 10 comments or so.
Well, the Panasonic-Leica 45 mm f/2.8 macro is the only native mount prime I own. Yes, I've travelled with it extensively and it's proven routinely successful in delivering macro images.Which one would you take and why? Have you done this already? How was the experience?
