And then one looks at the corners...

...it becomes even funnier when one moves away from meaningless "measurements" made in the frame centre, and ask any of those systems being compared to do this in the corners. I have, to this day, not seen another sample from an SLR at 28mm-equivalent do this in the corners:

In terms of crisply resolving to individual pixels in the absolute corner, the only match I have seen in "amateur small-format land" (i.e. excluding MF digital and scanning backs on a view camera) is a Leica 21mm at f/8.0 on an M9 - that is, after you've corrected the colour casts.

So... I'm not going to trade my E-5 for that Nokia Camera Phone or Sony P&S yet.
