Re: I agree, neither image sharp.

This is a really interesting theory. I have the panny 20 and find it way sharper than the oly 40-150. Aside from the low light ability of the panny, it would be lots less hassle to get a 12-40 which is nearly as sharp as the panny and sell my 40-150. If the DTCed 12-40 sharpness matches the 40-150 I gain significantly in -Fstop (F4.5->F2.8) (which will allow use of less-noisy ISOs) and also weatherproofness from the lens itself and not having to change lens so often. Can someone do a proper test and post up some images!
