This little gem is on sale for $70 off right now. I’m not normally a sale pumper unless it is for stuff I use, I like and I would recommend. If you’ve been on the fence, or waiting for this lens to drop a little, here’s a great opportunity to save a good amount of money on a great little lens.
Find the Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 15mm f/1.7 Aspherical lens on sale at Adorama HERE and B&H HERE.
If you’d like to see my review on the Leica 15mm, you can read that HERE.
Or, if you’d also like to read the head to head (to head) between the Leica 15, and the two Lumix Pancakes (14mm and 20mm) I did a comparison article HERE.
It is a great mate to any of the micro 4/3 cameras, especially the GM bodies, and is compact and lightweight enough to go largely unnoticed in the bag. I’ve been shooting the 15mm on the new GX8 with its 20mp sensor providing great results for me.
When it came time to upgrade my beloved GF1, I waited for its true successor to be revealed. The GX1, not the GF2 nor GF3, is seen by most GF1 users as the camera that has had the GF1’s torch passed to it. I’ve spent two solid years with the GF1 and have finally felt that the current crop of mirrorless system cameras out there have upped the game enough for me to trade it in. I surprised even myself when I decided on the G3 over the GX1, NEX5n, EP3 or NEX7. A budget conscious option which I feel punches well above its weight. I’ve got some low light test shots, size comparison shots and the like. C’mon in and I’ll explain why I feel the G3 was the best option for a shooter like me…
