ZD 12-60mm distortion test (imgs)

As asked vs. the 14-54 and the 11-22, and I threw in the 14-42 for kicks.

We'll start with the 12-60 vs. the 14-54 at 14mm. Sorry for the boring subject but I've got very little time at home this weekend to get this done so I had to run outside and use my garage door. Yeesh. Well, here you go.

The 12-60 at 14mm:

The 14-54 at 14mm:

And the 14-42mm (new) kit lens at 14mm:

I pretty much tossed in the latter but wow - that baby has some distortion. This is perhaps where the wonderfully sharp new standard kit lens falls down (other than pure speed). I will suggest that for those who have only the kit lenses and do not yet have the 14-54mm lens the new 12-60mm lens will make a massive upgrade over their current lens as long as size is not an issue.

Lastly, I'm pleased with what I'm seeing distortion wise out of the new lens.

12-60 vs. the 11-22 at 12mm in the next post!
