I do not understand why photozone were a bit critical of the Pana 2.8 constant apeture zoom lens. They waxed lyrical about the Fuji zoom, but the pana resolves more detail - more so than the 1.8 Olympus.

Isnt that really impressive?

For what it's worth I agree with you. The Fuji 18-55 is very sharp but also suffers from distortion and is also corrected in software (to the extent it is the one lens I hate to process in Capture one). I do think (in its equivalent field of view) the 18-55 is slightly better optically and is more reasonable in price. However, the 12-35 is wider, weather sealed and in honesty the only thing wrong with the output is CA on Oly cameras. Anything else is just hyperbole.
