Hi Zoners <img src='http://forum.photozone.de/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/cool.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='B)' />
It's time for the next mFT lens review...
Your comments are welcome...
Thanks Sebastian. Don't forget to add it in the Lens review index (non forum pages), it doesn't appear there for me.
Hmm I can't help being puzzled with their X strategy, at least marketing wise. The told us it would be video friendly but also *higher quality consumer stuff* as the price shows. (not to be mixed with high grade stuff).
Yet the 14-42, OIS issue apart, didn't really do much better than its ancestors but at least it has a design trick up its sleeve with the collapse-ability.
The 45-175 is indeed smaller than the 45-200 but I'm surprised it's not a big notch better. It's better in Vignetting & CA but it's also more expensive for slightly lower sharpness than the 45-200 that is IMHO, not a very sharp lens to start with... <img src='http://forum.photozone.de/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/huh.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='
Both X lenses surely innovate but shouldn't be regarded as anything else than new kit lenses IMHO.
Which makes the X designation for the upcoming High Grade a bit moot if it's not only about video?
Oh well... Still that lack of consistency in m43 land from Oly & Panasonic.
