A somewhat slower and cleaner test
In reply to Maklike Tier, 11 months ago

Because I am taking my Panasonic 12-32mm zoom on a European vacation soon, I wished to find out if I have a good copy, and at the same time address the subject of this thread.  To this end I compared this Panasonic lens to my Olympus 25mm f/1.8.  The lenses were tested on my GX7 mounted on a lightweight tripod.  Electronic shutter was used with a four second shutter delay to add stability.

First the Oly 25mm at f/5.6:

Then the Pany 12-32mm at 25mm and f/5.6:

And finally the Oly 25mm at f/2.0:

I find the lenses at 25mm and f/5.6 about equally sharp.  Of course at 12mm focal length or f/2.0 aperture, the choice is easy.
