14-42 and 14-54: do images actually look different?
Aug 18, 2009

I realize that the 14-54 is a sharper lens, etc. etc. But when it comes down to looking at a real-world image shot at the same settings and focal lengths, will the two images actually look different? I am thinking here of color or contrast or saturation. I am not thinking about CA or lens sharpness or distotrions or vignetting.

What I am trying to get at is whether the 14-54 somehow has more "appealing" result to viewer??

Thanks.
