Re: Two reasons why I'll probably buy the 12-35mm

I do not want you misunderstand me.

When I first read announcments of this new Oly lens, I already read notes of it' s superiority to Panny 12-35 (which I own).

This sound strange to me as there is no evidance by testing or other means.

What I would like to make clear here is that, acc. to my experience, none of the Oly lenses I mentioned exceeds nor matches the Panny.

For sure this is my experience and it seems difficult to me that the new coming can be better or sharper considering it is longer in focal lenht, cheaper and the fact that Olympus excels in teles (75 and 45 for example) but not on the wide side.

As I usually look for the best possible quality, I will be happy to have to trade.
