Re: Is the 12-35 really worth over 3x more? (MFT charts)
In reply to OldDigiman, May 23, 2012

Its performance probably warrants the price, but I am concerned about comparing lenses between different systems and different bodies on the SLRGear site. The Nikon and Canon are possibly far better lenses than those graphs suggest due to AA filters and other issues that I can't even guess.

For comparison, take a look at the Oly 12-60 graph and tell me, is the Pana 12-35 really that much better if used on the same camera? If it is, I would like to see the proof in comparison images (I am sure someone will make the comparisons...).

I know the extra 2mm on the wide end and the constant aperture are cool, but IQ-wise is this lens worth over 3x as much as the pancake zoom? Compare the Panasonic MTF charts (X 14-42 on top, 12-35 on bottom)
