Wideopen the PL25 is a SAD THING

Am.

That is some serious bull, the PL 25 is really really sharp wide open. Have you owned one? It is probably the sharpest lens I've ever owned.

lensrentals certainly contradicts to some extent the rest of the pack (lenstip, photozone, slrgear and dxomark)... so pick your test site.
