Re: Sharpness

Looking for opinions. How would you rate these lenses for sharpness in everyday use on m4/3?

Olympus M/Zuiko 45mm f1.8

Olympus Zuiko 50mm f2 Macro (on adapter for m/43)

Sigma 60mm f2.8

Olympus M/Zuiko 75mm f1.8

Which would you say is the sharpest? Which the least sharp? P;ease stay with these four. OTOH, which, in your opinion is the sharpest m4/3 lens in the system.

I'll post the results in a few days.

Thanks in advance.



Long term reputation in this forum has the 75mm as the best thing for sharpness. But sharpness isn't everything if the focal length does not suit the situation, so it all depends on what you are trying to shoot.

The 75mm is definitely not an "everyday use" lens, from this forum there have been quite a few users who bought it, loved the "sharpness", but found long term that they hardly used the lens so sold it again.

Using raw files plus careful conversion and sharpening techniques may help with the appearance of sharpening, but more than that, lighting the subject properly may have most effect.
