Re: Lens sharpness

Nobody says the Sigma is not a good lens. But first of all the PL25 is rather 3x the price - not 4x. And it has two more f-stops which cannot be measured in value. If you need that the price is what it is. And the better the lens the more you pay for just a little bit of extra quality. It is that way in every system. Look at Canon L lenses. The prices are not justifiable if you look at the added picture quality at comparable apertures. Same goes for Leica glass which costs thousands. Compared to these we are talking about a lens that has a very cheap price for what it is offering.
