Yet another lens comparison, Leica m-mount, Sigma 30mm m4/3, Panasonic 12-35mm m4/3 on E-M5
Jan 31, 2013

Ran my "new" Leica 35mm f2.8 against my new Sigma 30mm f2.8 against my new Panasonic 12-35mm f2.8 (set to 33mm)

Camera was OM-D E-M5, these images from in-camera JPEGs (set to superfine) at ISO 200, 1/80 shutter.

First is Leica, second is Sigma, third is Panasonic.  All three lenses were focused manually as best as possible.

I can't tell a difference between the $700 (used, e-Bay) Leica and the $100 Sigma in terms of sharpness.  The $1300.00 Panasonic, however, is noticeably sharper than the other two, at least to my eye.
