There is a country song entitled "Looking for Love in All The Wrong Places". So for all those who were criticizing me for my quick and admittedly dirty test, what you missed is that I was looking for a comparison at the 300mm end. Should have looked elsewhere.

Ephotozine just tested the Mark II Olympus lens. It found it equal to the Panasonic at the 300mm end, but better at the lower focal lengths (except for higher CA). Who knew?

I wrote another entry to cover this at: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3466296
