Lenses with the equivalent field of view of a 50mm (35mm format reference) are amongst the most popular because they provide a perspective close to natural human vision, or the angle of view of the human eye excluding the shift to the left or right. In addition to daily snapshots and street photography, they also work well for environmental portraits if the aperture is fast enough.
As of late 2016, there are four autofocus lenses for the Micro Four Thirds system that fall into this category. The two we’ll be comparing today have the fastest apertures of the four: the brand new Olympus M.Zuiko 25mm f/1.2 PRO and the Panasonic Leica 25mm f/1.4.
