I'm sorry to disagree on this. It does make a difference. Look at the smith photos. On the f1.4 we have a sense of depth. Not enough in the f1.8 shot. And it's not subjective.

I thought you guys were arguing that it had less depth...

And no it doesn't. And yes it is subjective.

Sorry to say but I see it as well. The Panny does have a certain 3D'ish look while the Oly is just flat. Possibly the same reason that I see the Oly as more clinically sharper/detailed while the Panny has a certain organic smoothness while still staying pretty sharp.

Mind you, I don't see a significant difference but it is a noticeable one.

Course, we can't really tell one way or the other without seeing more photos but the organic look is something I do notice with the Panny ever since it came out.
