Re: So the 14-45 mm has better optical IQ??

The lens is half the price of the Canon EF 2.8/24-70mm L II, which does not even has a stabilisator. So the 12-35mm easily wins the value for money race in this comparison.

The clear divide on this lens is between people who have bought it and speak from experience. They all seem alike in saying that this is the lens that becomes their staple.

Then there are the people who haven't tried it and are spooked by what they see as a poor quality lens for the price.

The reality is that this is a lens designed for photographers more than pixel peepers. If you are going to pixel peep alongside primes, it will not always match up (no surprise there, it's a zoom).

But as a lens for day to day use, it's a keeper if you can afford it.
