SMCP DA 18-55 WR/ALII/DA-L vs 16-45 f/4 vs original kit (charts)
Aug 26, 2010

I wrote up a comparison of the DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 AL II vs AL vs 16-45mm f/4. I know others have made some comparisons before, but I don't know of any sites that have both the AL and AL II lenses tested (so you can see the difference).

At my blog:
http://erphotoreview.com/wordpress/?p=319

Page 1 is some boring overview info since I figured it might be useful since not everyone reads test charts day in and day out. Page 2-4 are test charts, 2 is wide angle (16 or 18mm accordingly), 3 is standard (31mm) and 4 is telephoto (45 or 55mm). The final page is conclusions.

Enjoy, and comments/critique are always welcome.

Eric
