Panasonic Lumix 14mm f/2.5 is the Most Underrated Micro Four Thirds Lens

Panasonic 14mm f/2.5 is probably the smallest prime lens available for Micro Four Thirds system, and it is very reasonably priced at little over $300.  You will see so many reviews and discussions of the legendary Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 lens, but almost none about the 14mm pancake lens.

Well, here are the some of the advantages of 14mm over 20mm version of the Panasonic lens
  • smaller and lighter
  • lower price
  • faster and much better auto focus especially in dim lighting condition
  • focal length more suitable for landscape and some street photography settings
  • works flawlessly on Olympus body unlike 20mm version
  • so many converter options from Panasonic and Sony to make it into ultrawide and fisheye lens
About the last bullet point, the converter lenses are fairly cheap and does wonders to this lens according the most reviews, providing a fast prime ultrawide solution rather than much higher priced alternatives.

The Sony VCLECU1 listed below fits and works beautifully with Panasonic Lumix 14mm f/2.5, and priced below amazingly low $100 mark.  Some testers have confirmed that the Sony converter fits and do wonders to many other MFT lenses including Panasonic Lumix 25mm f/1.4.
