Trailer needs a wheel alignment?

LOL - The Tamron at f/8 is no match for the Zuiko 14-35 at f/2.8 anywhere  in the frame (and your sample was from a 1.6 crop sensor - funny!).

Indeed, that was a goof.  Let's fix that.  From PZ, I have resized one of their test photos to 16 MP so we can compare to the photo you posted from the EM5 + 14-35 / 2:

Nikon D3X + Tamron 24-70 / 2.8 VC @ 44mm f/4

That's equivalent to 22mm f/2 on 4/3.  Compare and contrast to the photo you posted at 14mm f/2.8:

and, well, let's just say that I'm not seeing that "putting to shame" that you've been talking about, unless...

Either that trailer badly needs a wheel alignment, or there is pretty ghastly distortion visible in the hub and wheel nuts of the RH wheel ...
