Sharpest Lens for MFT at 200mm
Jun 26, 2012

I worded the subjest of this question carefully. What lens is sharpest at 200mm (400mm eqiv.) for my MFT camera? I would prefer an MFT lens, but FT with adapter may be better. I am even willing to look at other format lenses with adapters as well. MFT and FT have advantages in auto-focusing, but I do tend to manual focus anyway. In-lens stablization is nice for my Panasonic body (GH!), but I also tend to tripod at the telephoto end anyway. I love the images from my 25mm Leica/Pan and like the images from my Pany 7-14. The images from my Pany 14-140 are OK but clearly not as sharp. I want something very sharp at the long end. I know this is a bit of a wasteland in the MFT world. But I would still like to know what the sharpest images are I can capture at 200mm with my MFT camera with todays lenses.

Let the opinions begin.
