I think its a Big Win for Olympus 28/1.8

Readin R.W.'s review:

  • Olympus is smaller than Panasonic
  • Olympus has superior CA control
  • Olympus is slightly wider (see conclusion): wider is easier to use as walk-about prime
  • Olympus is estimated about 1/3 stop brighter by R.W.
  • Olympus is cheaper.
  • Bokeh is not much difference between the two.

I think its safe to say its a big win for Olympus.

Am I correct to assume that Olympus MSC = quieter than Panasonic?  I tried a Panny 25 a while back, but can hear AF noise.
