1. The IQ is significantly better than I was led to believe -- I am very pleasantly surprised. It appears to be on a par not only with the 14-45mm, but also (at 25mm) in the ballpark of my 25mm PanLeica.

2. It's not at all bad wide-open and, at least from 12-14mm, is giving the 7-14mm a bit of a run, particularly since the latter is significantly slower than the f2.8 12-34.

Took these today out back on my farm. Nothing to write home about, but should give you some idea. They are landscapes and that's not my forte' and I was just playing around...

RAW image from GH3 processed into JPEG by Aperture. Note CA.

Purple fringing clearly visible, even reduced to small web size.

I don't need to spend $1300 on a lens to get purple fringing.

No, you don't.

That solves that dilemma.   Onward.
