You didn't really look at my f/2.0 crop, did you? If you think a competitor's 70-200 can do this, even at f/4.0, you have probably not used them all (I have) and are completely mistaken. There is practically no fixed-focal length lens that can beat this. If you are in posession of illustrative samples, please post them.

Then there is the great colour-rendering, perfect contrast at all apertures, and edge performance which make us owners of the Zuiko 35-100 really appreciate it over the alternatives. We can even forgive the slower, noisy focus. The SHG Zuikos are optically peerless, and it certainly took me a number of years to realise this.

Others are catching on... Even DigitalLoyd (in his paid subscription reviews) demonstrates the superiority of the SHG zooms over Leica M lenses in absolute terms.

Ahyway, I don't want to force you to use anything, my post was just a shout out to this wonderful optic.

Peace out.

My Nikon 50mm/1.8D can do that, not knocking the wonderful Zuiko lenses, but they don't have a monopoly on good glass

50/1.8 D at f/2, havent checked myself, but maybe you should

You mean like this?

Nikon f/1.8 50 D

ok you made me hunt for it, actually I think its what I saw here

thats on D200, apparently this is D3x

Perhaps something to compare it with?

and to quickly add 35-100/2

but before anyone gets too excited

what these MTF show IS the difference between lenses

to get actual resolving results you need to compute with sensor height

but still, zoom vs prime... good result

Or stopped down a tad

Shame about the CA and lack of evenness across the frame ...
