yes - it's slightly better - not on the level of elevation in performance by a prime I had hoped for. Treatment of the files is identical - thus visible differences originate by the optical capabilities.

In case I would not own the G 12..24 the GM 14 would be a stunning performer - knowing the optical level of the G 12..24 it is surprisingly low gain in performance - too low for my taste to use it instead of the G 12..24 when traveling.

I'll only use the GM 14 in the future for astrophotography which I currently don't do - but intend to perform in the future.

Stopped down to f/7.1 the G 12..24 is a incredible performer and hard to beat by any other lens I have had access to.
