Wow, avoid 2.8, acceptable at 4, pretty usable at 5.6 !

A couple of 'sharp' claims.

Kind of fits in with what I've been reading. Which is a pity.


How does this differ from the E1018?

  • This lens has: no f/2.8, is acceptable at f/4, and usable at f/5.6 ---

I have taken lots of pleasing pictures with the E16, and seldom have to use it at f/2.8 (I have other lenses then) - often with the UWA adapter.

I now use the E20 more regularly, which I find to be a more pleasing FOV - and this lens can be used at f/2.8 just fine.
