m.zuiko 14-42 IIR @ 20mm vs lumix 20mm
Jun 23, 2014

I've been reading some of the shutter shock posts here, and decided to do an impromptu test of my own.  I don't use the m.zuiko 14-42 IIR very often, so today I thought I'd see how it compares with the lumix 20mm at three different f stops.

I mounted my E-PL5 on a tripod, set the 14-42 @ 20mm, took three shots, f4, f7.1 & f11.  I should have turned off IS, but I didn't.

Then I took three shots with the lumix 20mm, again at f4, f7.2 & f11.

I used P Mode, program shift to reach the f stops, and finger pressed the shutter button for all shots.

This leaves me thinking that I should probably just ditch the 14-42 IIR.  What do you think?
