Nice comparison, Ken. I had similar results

I had much the same outcome when I tested the Panny 14, Oly 9-18 @ 14, and Oly 14-42 II R @ 14, on my E-PL3 taking a pox of the neighbor's picket fence across the road.

The Panny 14 might have been a touch more contrasty, but 100% centre and edge crops showed no appreciable difference in sharpness.

As far as I'm concerned, that's no failing of the 14, it's a triumph of the two zooms that they can be that good.

The 14 is generally my walk around lens.

Cheers, geoff
