Unique"Not for all situations or subjects, but always worth having in your camera bag or a vest pocket. Very light and compact. On my Lumix G85 IBIS I can rely on a sharp hand-held image with shutter speeds down to 1/4 second. In 35mm terms the close focus gives a 1:2.5 macro reproduction. Yes there will be barrel distortion, but even at f:3.5 the background, while not in the depth of field, will definitely be recognizeable for what it is. Gives you a perspective you won't get with any other type of lens. Think close-focus on a lone wildflower in the mountains or on a lakeshore, for example ... not to mention a sweeping landscape (but try to keep the camera level with the ground, in-camera level gauge is a boon here)."
