I wish I was as happy with my 12-40 as everyone else seems to be. Mine does not seem particularly sharp. I've heard that it is supposed to be as sharp as the 12 2 prime.....But I think I can confidently say that my 12-40 is NOT as sharp as my copy of the 12 2.

I'm kind of disappointed, TBH.

Can you post some comparison photos (or just photos that show the problem?)  I think you have a defective lens...I've got both the 12mm and the 12-40, and the sharpness on my 12-40 is absolutely not worse than that on the 12mm.  I wonder if you have a defective lens?

I would suggest sending it to Oly for repair, with a couple of comparison photos between it and the 12mm that show the problem.  (Or, if you can, exchange it for another one at the dealer, if you are still able to).
