Has any had experience with the 25mm f1.7 lumix?

I have. It's ok, quite fast, small and cheap. I don't like how the manual focus works. If you are on a budget it is a good fastish* native prime to get started with if you are moving on from the native zooms.

I consider 0.95 to 1.4 to be fast on the m4/3

I would keep your Canon glass and use the Aputure DEC Regain with it. That adapter is one of my personal reasons why id quite like a sony/m43 system. Its basically a remote follow focus with options t

I have a doc I'm shooting this summer and my wife and I got the voightlander 25 and 42 f/.95 for the job.  Not a lot shot with the lenses just yet, but I'm happy with the tests I've been doing. 

Thanks Noone for the Kipon info, I will have to check it out. I did a bit more research last night and I'm guessing the Leica lenses are Panasonic's equivalent to Canon's L Series, would you guys agre

Only the Panny/Leica 1.4...when you handle the lens it feels like a toy...but the image is all Leica...and at 1.4 the lens is tick sharp and the DOF unforgivingly shallow...as I never use AF, the fly by wire MF took a bit of getting use to, but the lens has performed flawlessly in over 5 years of owning it.

@Rich Merritt...I recently bought the 12-60 Panny/Leica 2.8 and although I don't have the GH5 that I bought it for yet, I am already very impressed with this lens. It will definitely earn it's keep! I got both the 20mm 1.7 and the 1st generation 14-140 4.0 on cameras I purchased and although slow, the 14-140 is a good outdoor video lens and the 20 is fast and sharp for indoor use...especially needed if you shoot Vlog as raising ISO in Vlog seems to get noisy quickly...

I've also been using my Oly 12-40 f/2.8 for corporate work. Looks fine. good rendering and sharpness. 

The Voigtlander 25mm may be one of the nicest lenses I've ever used. The mix of modern/visual IQ with such a fast lens can be both breathtaking and utilitarian for a single lens. Would love to see the 17.5mm or 25mm used with an LS300 with the prime zoom function... hmm... maybe I should make that happen.
