Olympus M.Zuiko 12mm vs the 12-50mm E-M5 kit lens @ 12mm - anyone?
May 28, 2012

I currently own E-M5 with the kit lens and noticed that I've been using the 12mm area quite a bit lately to shoot landscapes. I was wondering if the 12mm lens would give me a big enough advantage IQ wise to make purchasing it worthwhile.

I would hugely appreciate it if someone with access to both of those lenses would be able to post some comparison photos at let's say f/8 or somewhere around that. They don't need to be scientific, simple landscape images would be great.

Also, any sort of information would be helpful regarding the image quality on smaller aperatures compared to the kit lens, as I would probably rarely need f/2.

Thanks!
