It would be easy to do a comparison test. Try it and let us know.

OK - so here we go again. IS Off. ISO 200. On tripod.

The 12-50 I have closed down half a stop - unfair I feel to leave it wide open.

The 45 is at f4 - it's sweet spot.

This time 100% - and central portion - so no CA to confuse.

1st 12 -50:

2nd 45mm:

If opinion doesn't find vast difference in sharpness, then either I have a superb 12-50 or a duff 45 - or, dare I say there really is not much difference between the cheap zoom and the prime? apart from the obvious f1.8 - small light etc.

I appreciate it's not the Leica 25mm I'm comparing it too but I'm just not convinced, and having to turn IS off to do this - come on now?
