I can certainly see your point that this is unfair to some degree. If we rated it with -say- 2* on the basis of the uncorrected data we would have faced counter arguments from the MFT user group.


Remind me, are the MTF charts for corrected or uncorrected data? I think it is good that there is both uncorrected and corrected information available. Following that, I think there would be value in presenting both uncorrected and corrected optical ratings at the end. I'm not up to date on the format, but for example Olympus didn't used to implement CA removal in body, so the degree of correction available may need consideration also?

And let's not forget that it is pancakish, not a normal lens. For the price, compactness, and sharpness I think it is more than 3 stars respective to its market.[/quote]

I think the question raised was only on its optical quality rating, not the overall value which is a separate rating.
