At 70mm it's still not that great to be honest...definitely wouldn't use "equal"...just cropped with Preview on my Apple Macbook to close to ~equal sizes...

I have said numerous times in this thread, that upper left corner, which you decided to show, is clearly faulty on the 24-70mm, and even with it performing badly, it is still about the same as the OM image. You can clearly see from the other areas that for the same field of view, it is capturing significantly more detail than the OM.

Will you notice in a 20x30 print? Probably some. The image resolution factors into the system resolution of the print.


The detail is there, but significantly blurred/distorted due to glass quality, we know it's not the sensor for sure...

So the 24-70 FE is not very good at 24mm or 70mm...very good to excellent at mid zoom, but if you have the 35mm and 55mm it's really a judgement call...NEED a good UW FE Lens Sony...lets get the lead out, Oly is on the way with a 7-14 PRO UWA and it's not going to be a slouch....

Mr Ichiro Kitao, I support the call to upgrade the FZ50.
I will not only buy one but two no questions asked...
