Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 PRO Lens Test Results



From CameraStuffReview review :

The Olympus 12-40 mm f/2.8 is such a good lens that shows that you can make professional-quality pictures with the micro-43 system. The sharpness starting at f/2.8 is already very high from center to the extreme corners. The bokeh is a little less woolly, but that’s to be weighed against a great insensitivity to flare, low chromatic aberration and high sharpness in the corners at full aperture. The high purchase price should not be a barrier for so much photo enjoyment.
