Panasonic Leica-D Summilux 25mm f/1.4 lens for Four Thirds

see also:

Here is the lens mounted on a Panasonic GH-1 Micro Four Thirds camera via an adapter and with an Olympus WCON-08B PRO 0.8x wide converter on the front of it which makes the whole lens look much bigger but effectively makes it a 20mm focal length lens just for fun:
