Panaleica 8-18mm Lenstip review out

Seems excellent in the centre but some question marks to the edge especially at longer focal lengths and wide open. Their "decency levels" are quite stringent but this lens seems to only just squeek in somewhat. In my estimation a bit disappointing vs expectation for the price and "name" but as they have neither tested the Panasonic 7-14mm (which I have and am happy with) or the Oly Pro 7-14mm it is difficult to get a reference point as extreme wide zooms (or primes) are notorious for not having great edge results.
