OMG. The Oly lens is SO much better. Just look at how it took the people out of the shot! LOL

Ha! Yes, I was waiting for that one. Thanks.

Seriously, thanks for posting. I think these lenses are going to be close and a shot like this won't show much difference. Also, the E-M1 will do corrections for the Oly lens so comparing OOC JPEGs may not be a fair test.

True, but it does some correction for the Panasonic as well. The CAs are much worse with my E-M5/12-35 combination than they are with the E-M1 shot shows. But, as I said, there are multiple considerations, and this was not a rigorous test.
