Completely non-scientific, but my initial shots on my just-delivered-today GX7 with one of the sharpest lenses I've ever owned - the Leica 180/3.4 APO Telyt - indicates that the sensor is doing just fine sharpness-wise. I see nothing that left me wanting . . .

see: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3594576

i like the shots. but is this with a full frame 180mm, i.e., a 360mm (in 35mm terms) equivalent? i'm totally not familiar with that lens unless it's an older leitz 90mm and you are giving it in 35mm equiv terms. if that's not the case and it's really a 180mm, the min shutter speed would be 1/360th, not 180th.

It's a 180mm lens which would give a 360mm or so equivalent FOV on 35mm. As I stated in the other thread the min shutter speed would be 1/360 sec (~1/(2xFL) - perhaps I forgot a set of parentheses in the other post).

See here for info on this most excellent (but heavy) lens:
