In terms of resolution, what would be the sharpest lens for 4/3? This one? Olympus Zuiko Digital ED 12-60mm f/2.8-4. Price is no object.

As I am a Nikon person (40 years worth), I am not that familiar with the Olympus and Panasonic lenses. I would like a zoom lens rather than a fixed focal length.

If you want to know what "sharp" on m4/3's looks like stick a 12-60mm at F4 on an EPL-1 or a 20mm 1.7 at F2.8. These two lenses stand out from the ones I have used on m4/3's. Of the native m4/3's zooms the Panasonic 14-45mm is excellent and probably the best kit lens ever produced.
