Re: Vivitar 19/3.8 Information

I guess the Lumix 7-14mm f/4 would be the closest available native MFT... but 7mm isn't all that wide on MFT.

But the Panasonic 7-14mm is a pretty good lens and is light and compact.

The closest native equivalent to the 19/3.8 on a focal reducer (giving a 14/2.7) is the Panasonic 14/2.5 pancake, and I'm sure it is sharper, has better contrast, and is less susceptible to flare. It's perfect for someone who wants a light, modern lens with AF, no aperture ring, and focus-by-wire MF.

Regards,

Alan
