plevyadophy - what do you mean by distortion at 12mm on m43?

It's not distortion at 12mm on mFT per se, rather it's 12mm distortion (no matter what format). At that extreme focal length barrel distortion is common (mFT hides it by automatically doing distortion correction, at the risk of some image quality loss in the corners, on JPEG output). To get rid of it optically, means a more expensive and complex lens.

Yet the output of 12mm f/2.0 lens wide open is better than any FF 24mm lens on FF camera.

and 1Ds mk III is not even FF...

now,  5D is FF...

this lens is super expensive and at least 5 times heavier... and just as bad at f/2.
