Peng! Well said (although I agree with Paul and, I think, so do you!)

Sorry I couldn't help myself. I know this has probably already been posted within the other thread with the opposite title, but there needs to be some counter-balance to prevent this lens from getting a bad rap on this forum. It's a bipartisan forum dang it!

The perceptual MPix is much higher with the Panny, especially stopped down!

Disclaimer: I have no idea how MPix is measured or any of their methods for obtaining said results, I'm just blindly trusting DXO because they seem pretty legit. At least close to my observations with existing lenses that I own.

Who care`s, the Olympus 17mm is plenty sharp enough for most of us.

That's not the correct attitude for a gear forum such as this. You speak as if you care about shooting actual pictures more than you care about numbers being posted on various websites.


Seroously, though, it is good news that the 15 looks as though it shapes up well. 14-15 is a nice focal length, albeit a bit long!

Cheers, geoff
