There was a thread somewhere on this site that had a link to some testing site that pretty much stated that most "Film Era" legacy lenses were pretty bad performers on modern day digital cameras. And they had tons of example pictures and lenses they tested. And most has to do to to the rear lens element on old stuff. Even coating and amazingly the thickness of the glass in front of the sensor. I remember a Leica sensor has a 1mm thick glass and m4/3 has 4mm glass in front. The thicker the glass the worse old lenses do. YMMV.

4mm? It is VERY hard to believe, especially on cameras with IBIS. Maybe Pana. IBIS must be really strong to handle that weight.

Believe it or not, this is what Roger Cicala's LensRentals blog published

I have read it. This is from GX1. Maybe other m43 cameras also do it. The graphs show that within image circle of m43 the glass increases image quality.
