Maybe their camera body is faulty, all recent reviews seem to say m43 has poor iq?

Perhaps you should read their reviews, before you write such things.

They praised the Oly 75 highly, also the 60 and 45. So far to the recent reviews.

And at a time, when everyone on this forum and other reviews jubilated about the qualities of the 12 mm, their summary was divided between advantages and shortcomings of this lens. Well, now that the dust raised by the fan-boys has settled, the last opinions on this lens here on this forum were rather lacking this jubilation, as this 12 prime is optically not quite as good as the 12-35 zoom.

So, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese: first read, then think, finally write.


Oh pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeese, how can we take these guys seriously when the use the E-PL1? be nice to see it tested with a newer body, don't you think?


1) Continuing to use the same sensor means that the results are directly comparable to previous results. (Or did that escape you?)

2) The E-PL1 continues to be touted as one of the best 12mp m4/3 bodies in terms of IQ. Why do you think it is suddenly inadequate?
