Now I know DPR got a bad copy; Thanks.

Another wonderful example of your view on the world. As it happens we tested two copies, both provided directly by Panasonic - this was (fractionally) the better of them, but overall performance was very consistent between the two.

The test results do not imply the Panasonic 45/2 is a bad lens, BTW. They simply confirm our long-standing opinion that the Olympus ZD 50mm F2 Macro is optically superb, and a benchmark optic that shows the quality of the Micro Four Thirds cameras from both Olympus and Panasonic in the best possible light.
