Robin Wong, after all.

he is Olympus employee after all, so he can't be 100% impartial (that does not mean that PL25/1.4 is better - that means he can't do a more precise testing... for example compare Nikon 85/1.4 vs Nikon 85/1.8 - there are many points where 1.8 scores better... and those 2 were not designed to compete - while O25/1.8 was vs PL25/1.4).

He brought up the point in the beginning that 1.4 lenses are expected to be better than 1.8 lenses, but fails to mention that 1.4 lenses are usually actually twice the price, at the very least, as 1.8 lenses.

prices are tricky... not in every country the price is twice as much + taxes + people can buy from other countries... I purchased my P35-100/2.8 from Japan because it was cheaper (yes, warranty is for Japan only).
