Panasonic LUMIX G 42.5mm f/1.7 ASPH. POWER O.I.S.
Image quality: 8/10
Value for money: 8/10
The Panasonic LUMIX G 42.5mm f/1.7 ASPH. POWER O.I.S. is a very good portrait prime lens, offering a fast maximum aperture with effective image stabilisation in a tiny yet solidly-built package. Performance wide-open at f/1.7 isn't brilliant in terms of sharpness, though, and the lack of weather-sealing is a little disappointing, but in all other regards this lens is a great performer.
