Re: Joele & others Oly 17mm f/2.8 Kit lens with E-P1 is sharpest

I don't think its forgetting so much as disregarding as not really being a useful comparison. Comparing it to the 14-45mm makes perfect sense. Comparing it to the 12-60mm is farfetched but I understand why some people want to do it. Comparing it to the 17mm or 20mm primes?

If you really wanted to compare them though; According to the reviews the 12-50mm has a resolution of 44 lp/mm compared to the 17mm's 41 lp/mm at their sharpest focal lengths.
