Primes and the 12-40/2.8


The Oly lenses that I have:

1) M. Zuiko 60/2.8 Macro

2) M. Zuiko 45/1.8

3-4) M. Zuiko 12/2.0 and 17/1.8

5) M. Zuiko 75-300 II (this lens is definitely sharper than the other two zooms)

6-7) M. Zuiko 14-42 IIR and M. Zuiko 40-150 ED (about the same)

Note that I also own two other non-Olympus M43 lenses, and they are both very sharp.

1) The Samyang 7.5mm fisheye is razor-sharp and on a par with the 60/2.8 Macro and 45/1.8

2) The Panasonic 12-35 is also a very sharp lens - sharper than my Olympus zooms and probably on a par with the 12/2.0 and 17/1.8 (although the two primes offer better image quality).
