No, seriously, thanks.

I'll have to take a much closer look for more details.

It is a pretty good test scene in any case, with some fine detail (both man-made and organic), some straight lines, some darks against a bright sky etc.

May I assume that your point of AF focus was on that small tree almost right in the center? (I almost did not see it in the 12mm shots but it is prominent in the 40mm shots)

Here you go. Fresh off the press.

12-40 f3.5 12mm

12-50 f3.5 12mm

12-40 f5.6 12mm

12-50 f5.6 12mm

12-40 f5.6 40mm

12-50 f5.6 40mm
