How do Pana 14mm and Oly 9-18 zoom compare at 14mm?
Mar 9, 2013

Hello,

Does anyone has compared at 14 mm Olympus 9-18mm and Panasonic 14mm/2.5?

Is there significant difference in sharpness or distortion?

With wide angle often frame edge  should be sharp and I wonder if it's worth to buy this tiny pancake into bag to share room with Oly zoom?

The the question is at 14 mm:

OLYMPUS : M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 9-18mm F4.0-5.6

versus

Panasonic : LUMIX G 14mm F2.5 ASPH.
