The PL (Panasonic/Leica) 15mm lens....is an astonishingly great lens. I have a handful of truly fine lenses for my mu43 bodies but the 15mm PL tends to put them all to shame. It also tends to 'grow on one', the more you use it.A nearly new Panasonic Leica 15mm f1.7 lens ......... quite nice images I must say.
Of course it did, Tony. It is a lovely teeny tiny lens!Uh oh, this just hopped into my cart . . .

I knew I sometimes wanted something wider than the 23mm f2 on the X100S, and despite favorable reviews, I didn't think I'd be content with the Panasonic 12-32, as low light capability is important to me. The only other viable options were the Olympus 12mm f2 (perhaps too wide, and no aperture ring), and the Lumix 14mm 2.5 (so-so IQ). I've decided my walk-around kit is going to be the GX9 with the PL 15 for wide angles and the film Pen F 38 mm 1.8 for my short telephoto. The 38/1.8 has been sitting on the shelf behind me for over a year with a PF-m43 adapter attached . . . I blame it for the GX9 purchase.
Retirement is just a bit over a month away, and I decided I wanted a small camera with small lenses for my walking/biking around kit. Hopefully this setup will provide me many years of quality use.
Oh, please tell us more about this lens as you begin to use it. Both handling and image quality. I have people who are trying to decide whether to go with this lens on an A7III body for handheld wildlife photos - or just picking up an RX10 IV instead.Sony FE 200-600mm 5.6-6.3 Zoom G OSS lens
