next PZ lens test report: Panasonix Lumix G X 12-35mm /2.8 ASPH OIS
I also expected it to be better. Especially after reading [url=""]this[/url]:

The 12-35mm f/2.8 is a very sharp lens. Starting right at f/2.8 and continuing throughout the aperture range (until f/11 or so where diffraction starts to lower image quality), the images the 12-35 produces are nice and crisp. This is true throughout the vast majority of the focus range, though there is very slight softening wide open right at minimum focus distance. Also notable is that when focused at infinity, edge performance suffers. This isn’t necessarily a deal breaker, but it’s worth noting. This is true for both the wide and long ends of the lens. From close to about 50 feet or so, the corners at 12mm are very sharp, even at f/2.8. Focused at infinity, though, they get pretty soft. It’s a little odd to see such a dramatic falloff when focused at infinity, but it’s there. Luckily, at 12mm, focusing at 15-20 feet into an image is often ideal for landscapes, and will yield very sharp images from near to far when stopped down for increased depth of field. At any focus distance the center performance remains extremely high.
