The GM 35 seem TSO be so incredible sharp wide open that you can easily crop it too the field of view of any 40 mm lens and still be Milenas ahead in contrast and resolution - at least if you start with enough pixels.

I‘vecompiled a chart comparing the mtf 50 tests from lenstip.com illustrating an indication of what the GM 35 could be capable of. Further tests will surely bring more evidence later.

The problem with cropping is the pre-visualization.

Because Sony is amazingly stubborn if it comes to the user interface:

-JPEG aspect ratio selection is very limited

-Stepless clear image zoom works only if you disable RAW

-Marker Display, Guideframe and Safety Zone are only available in the video mode

So if you want to visualize crop factors other than 1.5 in the viewfinder, or if you want to visualize other aspect ratios you are stuck on Sony bodies
