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.

Your link gives this result:

"La página que estabas buscando en este blog no existe."

I definitely understand enough spanish to read that!


OK, I found the review, but through the main page of your blog.

You may still want to correct that link.

If I read correctly, you value the lens at 5/5 for IQ and 4/5 for value.

But I also read that you wanted to know whether it would be a replacement of your 12-60 (FT, I presume).  Now that is a tall order.  What was your conclusion there (I think I must have missed it in the text).
