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.

According to DXO lens tests the Nocticron is the sharpest lens in the system of the lenses they have tested.
Followed closely by the 75mm f/1:1.8 (and the "Leica" 15mm f/1:1.7).

Unfortunately the partnership between DPR and DXO for lens testing hasn't been as productive as might have been expected, they seem to be rather slow to test new lens releases.
I'd expect the above results to change based on more recent M.Zuiko PRO lenses if/when DPR provides samples to DXO to test.

The Sigma is a few notches below the 42.5mm and 75mm and the 45/1.8 is a couple below that.

I have the 75/1.8 and it is indeed quite sharp.

The bluetail was shot through a glass door, so probably not the best example.
