So have most OM-D users upgraded from the 20f1.7 to the 25f1.4?
The 20f1.7 seemed to be first good prime, so I assume their were many early MFT users.
Now I see so many photos on this thread using the 25f1.4.
Is it that much better? Is it the DOF, AF speed, bokeh?
I did, but recently got the 20/1.7 again for its nicer AOV and smaller size.
Everything is a little bit better with the 25/1.4, so overall it's preferable. But it's much larger, especially with the hood on, and of course narrower.
The worst thing with the 20 is the terribly slow and inaccurate AF. Sometimes it just hunts for five seconds without finding anyting, even in good light.
That's the kind of info I'm looking for. I typically like the 35/40 mm focal length (35mm equivalent) better for "general" use, but I might try the 25. I just a beginner with the OM-D and 20/1.7, so I'm just starting to notice the AF issues with the 20.
I've also noticed that it doesn't like shooting toward the sun.
