Nokton 25mm f0.95

LensTips say that the Nokton 25mm is the sharpest that they have tested.  They have tested the 75mm and it falls short of the Nokton.  They haven't tested the 60mm

Photozone would appear to agree that Nokton 25mm is sharpest of the lenses they have tested.  They haven't tested the 60mm macro or the 75mm yet

LensRentals data shows the 60mm macro to just edge the 45mm macro. They haven't tested the Nokton or the 75mm macro

My personal experience is that the 45mm f2.8 macro is one of the sharpest lenses and one of the few m43 lenses that is sharp across the lens.  Most m43 lenses are only sharp in the centre, particularly when wide open.  Haven't had a chance to try the 75mm, 60mm macro or the Nokton
