This article over at Lensrentals is interesting an pertains to lenses like the 12-35, which have to correct a fair amount via software...

If you are willing to put up with weight and poor auto-focus, the Oly 12-60 is very nice for landscapes. I've always found it better than my 14-45 (nice micro-contrast, I think).

Think I'll wait and see whether Oly commits to a µ4/3 edition of the 12-60, which could really enhance the system (despite the existence of the 12-50). In practice it's a fine landscape lens and offers near-macro performance to boot. Very sharp, very contrasty. But big on a µ4/3 body and twitchy autofocus.

Has there been any evidence of 12-35 sample variation? I see some very sharp output, some not so sharp.

Cheers,

Rick
