This is just as was said in the other thread about prime-only shooters with snobby attitudes:

I am very good at pixel peeping, and I can't tell that the Panasonic 14mm prime has any better image quality than the kit lens that comes with the E-PL5. In fact, just the opposite, I think the kit lens has better image quality because there are less chromatic aberration correction artifacts in the corners of the image.

While certainly there are lenses that go wider than the kit lens, they don't all produce better image quality.

I'm not sure what is wrong exactly - I think that you're agreeing that the 14mm is no better than the kit lenses.

I haven't looked at what the 'snobby' prime shooters said yet but will check it out later
