Our friend, David Thorpe, who's taken quite a liking to Micro Four Thirds (MFT) cameras and lenses, has been putting the Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 12mm f/1.4 ASPH. lens through its paces. 

ePHOTOzine gave the Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 12mm f/1.4 ASPH. lens a 'Highly Recommended' award when we put it to the test a couple of years ago and David agrees that, it's a good buy if you 'need the speed' and can justify the price, of course. 

To hear what else David thinks about the lens, and to take a look at some of the test images he has captured with it, click play on the video review above.
