Great deal. I just cancelled my order for this lens last week for 199 on eBay. Definitely glad I did.

Highlights

Micro Four Thirds System Lens

Aperture Range: f/1.7 to f/22

One Ultra-High Refractive Index Element

Two Aspherical Elements

Nano Surface Coating

Stepping AF Motor

Rounded 7-Blade Diaphragm

Features

A fast, normal prime designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, the Lumix G 25mm f/1.7 ASPH. from Panasonic is a 50mm equivalent lens featuring a bright f/1.7 maximum aperture for enhanced low-light shooting and depth of field control. One UHR (Ultra-High Refractive Index) element pairs with two aspherical elements to reduce spherical aberrations and distortions for consistent edge-to-edge sharpness and illumination. A Nano Surface Coating has been applied, too, and helps to reduce flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color fidelity. The optical construction also helps to realize a compact overall form factor, measuring just 2"-long and weighing 4.4 oz. Benefitting both stills and video capture, this lens also incorporates a stepping motor for smooth, quiet autofocus performance that is compatible with Lumix cameras' high-speed contrast-detection focusing systems.

Designed for Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras, this lens provides a 50mm equivalent focal length to represent a normal perspective.

Fast f/1.7 maximum aperture benefits working in difficult lighting conditions and also enables extensive control over focus placement for selective focus applications.

One UHR element and a pair of aspherical elements help to achieve even illumination and sharpness for consistent performance throughout the aperture range.

A Nano Surface Coating has been applied to individual elements to noticeably reduce lens flare and ghosting for greater contrast and color fidelity when working in strong lighting conditions.

Stepping motor delivers fast, smooth, and near-silent autofocus performance to benefit both still photograph and movie recording applications.

Rounded seven-blade diaphragm produces a smooth out-of-focus quality when working with shallow depth of field techniques

Good deal!

But it almost gave me a heart attack. I thought this was the 25mm f1.4 and this was a price mistake. Then I would get a spare. LOL.

f1.7 is still a pretty dang good lens and worth its value. Thumbs up for this deal!

It's unreal when I talked to Amazon that they no longer issue refunds. It's been 2 days and I only got the thing Friday. They said I would need to return and rebuy, which is so stupid. I just ordered from Adorama and I'll return the Amazon one next week.

I believe this was $99 in black Friday few years ago. I thought about getting this lens but I'll stick to 20.7 pancake lens.

Got this lens when it was $99 a while back. It lives on my PM2. It is a very good lens.

This lens has only been $99 one time and that was when it first came out. I do not recall it ever being that low again. This is the normal sale price now.
