My cheapo 148 buck Panasonic 25mm

My cheapo 148 buck Panasonic 25mm - just got it yesterday.
A few test shots wide open, looks to be a winner so far as I can tell so far.
All hand held shots nothing special- just point and shoot. All available light.

This is not art just test shots.

You will be missed! Though I admit the same ideas are in my mind.

Nice photo, nice set. Question what are you hoping to get from the Fuji that you can't currently get with M43 and Pentax?

I sold my Pentax equipment entirely - Pentax' weight and AF performance were the main reasons.

Regarding MFT: pushing shadows results in noise and colors and contrast suffer. I am not the biggest fan of 4:3 ratio. Moreover, I analyzed my photos and found that I hardly ever needed the IBIS, especially considering the 18-55 and the improved ISO performance. Last but not least: MFT just became to expensive - the 35 F1.4 serves my purposes better than the P25 or even O25 and is cheaper. There is nothing comparable to the 12mm F2 from Samyang, same accounts for the 23mm variants.

Still own the MFT equipment, just sold the Voigtländer 17.5mm and the Oly 75mm so far.
