Lacking any Zeiss 4/3 system lenses for a direct comparison, I find the Zuiko options better considered within the 4/3 format. Even though I have a number of legacy Zeiss lenses I occasionally use on 4/3 and µ4/3, none is as sharp as, say, the 150/2.0 or the 45/1.8. But those wouldn't do too well on a 135-format camera, either.

Having no experience with, say, NEX or M-mount Zeiss lenses, I can't say how those might fare compared against the best Zuikos. I suspect some of the Zeiss cine lenses would spank them, but lenses the price of a nice used car darn well should.

Very good point...well taken.  I've heard many people say that you are paying for the Zeiss name more than what the lenses true value is.

Cheers,

Rick
