Re: So I'm NOT seeing what I'm seeing?

All I said is that I see what the other guy said he sees. Which is that the PL 25mm photos look more 3D and the colours are different enough to make the gradient smoother, more natural and again, more 3D. I didn't say the PL is better than the Oly. Just that it's different. Why is that such a big deal?

Because it shows a fundamental misunderstanding of how many steps in the digital imaging workflow - especially those dealing with colour and tone - can affect the final look of an image, especially an 8 bit sRGB JPEG. I own the PL25. I've shot thousands of photos with it, professional and personal. Once I have applied my colour management and workflow, it's images looks like I want them to look. But please, feel free to continue to argue that you see what you see (3D!) on a low-res, 8 bit JPEG without understanding how ridiculous that assertion actually is.
