Really an f/2.0 to f/2.8 lens

In terms of getting an acceptably sharp image, at least at the long end where it's likely to be used the most. Disappointing for a $1500 lens that is supposed to compete with the big boys from Canon/Nikon.

Actually, the lens is probably an f/2.0 to f/2.8 lens, which is why it looks sharper "wide open" at 35mm, because it's actually stopped down at that aperture and focal length.

This is the laws of physics... as the focal length increases, you need a physically larger aperture to arrive at the same f/stop ratio.

I don't understand why Panasonic didn't make it an f/2.0 to f/2.8 lens.
