Leica 15mm f1.7 review – a classy prime for Micro Four Thirds!

The Leica Summilux 15mm f1.7 is a semi-wide lens for the Micro Four Thirds system. Mounted on a Panasonic or Olympus body it delivers equivalent coverage of 30mm, making it a mild wide-angle roughly between the traditional 28 and 35mm focal lengths. This makes it an ideal general-purpose option, offering a step-up over kit zooms, and if you're fitting it on the tiny Lumix GM1 it won't impede a tripod mount. The Micro Four Thirds system does however offer a variety of lenses and most owners will wonder how the 15mm f1.7 compares to the slightly longer and slightly cheaper Olympus 17mm f1.8. Well wonder no more! I've compared them in detail in my in-depth Leica 15mm f1.7 review!
