What are your thoughts about it?


My thoughts are that this thread is too much focused on numbers (even though there is a very interesting reply on how the differences in precise focal length may add up to that).

you're right Duarte. It's better to focus on pictures! But sometimes a bit of technical speaking can be interesting too.

The best of Robin Wong's test is the the pictures themselves. Personally I think the bokeh on the Oly is far superior to the Panny. The CA is also something that jumps into your eyes, but I guess that could be inverted if you changed bodies. In the end, the F-stop, is what matters less...

I think F-stop matters a lot, but we can have each our opinions.

But I agree, CA and bokeh are more important, because it's what we see in a picture.
