I made my side-by-side comparison when I bought the 12-40mm at these focal distances:


Thanks for that.

Although you posted fairly big sized files, the individual snippets are still pretty small.

But I think I can deduce that the competition is stiffest at 12mm, and also with a bit of stopping down.  More zoomed to the tele end and wide open, the 12-40 seems clearly better.

I will polish off my Spanish and read your review.

(I don't actually speak spanish but french and italian and I manage to read spanish reasonably well.)




These comparison shots are part of my review of the lens (in Spanish here ).
