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

Very good.

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

No experience.

Sigma 60mm f2.8

No experience.

Olympus M/Zuiko 75mm f1.8

Optically stunning.

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.

Optically, I'd say the 75mm f/1.8 is the best lens I've ever used. I've never used lenses like the PL 200 f/2.8 or Olympus 17 f/1.2 Pro; both of which seem to get almost universally outstanding reviews for optical quality. I doubt anyone really has used enough different lenses to really speak meaningfully about comparing the sharpness of the full range of m43 lenses. And copy to copy variation could make even the most objective comparisons slightly inconsistent from test to test.

I'll post the results in a few days.

Thanks in advance.
