I hope it has better sharpness than the 12mm and the 17mm, and is up to the standard of the 45mm. But the real question is whether it renders as well as the PL 25 1.4.


I'm crossing my fingers that it will be close to the 45mm in sharpness and rendering. That lens has one unique look that I find pretty alluring (and which some people despise, I've observed). I already have the PL 1.4, but I'm not too thrilled about its big size for a normal prime, though I love what it does for portraits more than any other lens. This one seems about as big as the 17mm, which I find is perfect.

3. colour won't be over saturated since Leica lens is more warm in colour, paired with Oly body and you get even warmer colour.

That is the worst reason ever for turning down the PL, even if you're a JPEG shooter the saturation level and color balance is like the easiest thing to change...
