Is my 9-18mm as sharp as it should be?
Sep 28, 2012


I keep wondering if my 9-18mm is as sharp as it should be, as it has been my walk-around lens on different hikes for a while now so perhaps has seen some bumps.

I took some pictures on a tripod on a cloudy day with my lenses, any comments will be appreciated.

The lens used can be determined by the name of the picture, but they are:

  • Olympus m.Zuiko 9-18mm f/4-5.6

  • Panasonic 20mm f/1.7

  • Olympus 12-50mm f/3.5-5.6

  • Panasonic 45-200mm f/4-5.6

  • Olympus 40-150mm f/4-5.6

Crops follow:
