Der Steppenwolf: This lens is is just another crap along with 16-85, 18-70, 18-55 (2 of those!!!) 18-135 and 18-200 and 18-300. All slow, plasticky with so so optical quality, what the hell happened to Nikon ?Who there thinks that we need slow zoom number 8 on a DX system ?Are you on drugs Nikon ?
16-85 is the best dx consumer Lens...
stageshadow: On par with d7000 and 5dmk2, nice details!Not bad at all!
Don´t think so, but i was away and had just my IPAD with me.And yeah, on my imac they look really better!I mainly looked at higher iso, at lower iso it beat everything except the Pentax 645D.Across the iso range the details are much better, but noise levels above iso 800 are on par with D7000(not a bad thing)
stageshadow: OM-D VS. Nikon D7000
Nikon D7000 have clearly better Details from iso200-iso800At iso1600 and above the OM-D nearly matches the D7000's output.
Not Bad at all!
@Bart HickmanThank you for the input!You are right, didn´t thought about that.Still impressed with the Test shots....

happy snapper uk: There must be something wrong with the test as compared to nikon 7000 it beats it in every way...can this be true? sharper and less noise or does my eyes need testing?And makes my gh2 look crap
Sorry, but the gh2 Look crap (in this comparison).I found the Nikon D7000 has clearly better Details up to iso 800.But at Iso1600 and above the OM-D comes very close to the output of the d7000...
thx1138: The P&S camera market is under siege from the phone cameras and yet although this offers a novel feature it's still a tiny sensor offering not much improvement over the 1/4" sensors. Time to move this class of camera up to the 1/1.8"-1/1.5" sensors while the advanced P&S move to 2/3" or larger. No use complaining that it'll make it bigger, as people aren't buying this class of camera anyway. The likes of the LX-5, XZ-1 etc aren't that much larger at all anyway.
Go for a pentax Q with prime!And if you ever need a 3x zoom, there is also a standard Zoom for that!
