Quote:Yes, it broke my heart when I sold it. I'd very hard to tell whether the Oly is better. I used the Leica on a 10mp camera (the L10 - ah, a heavily underrated camera). The thing is that the Leica was fully corrected (just 2.9% barrel distortions at 14mm) so it didn't rely on auto-correction. That should put it into advantage at the wide end at least.
Thanks for your feedback on that Klaus. I was thinking the same, i.e. probably less auto-correction on the Leica. I use it with an adapter on a second-hand Oly. em1, AF works not too bad because of the phase detect, better than say, GH4, pretty poor with only caf. The IS is also pretty good with the Olympus EM1.
Of course the olympus has less ca's and doesn't need an adapter, lots of exotic elements etc. better AF. If I didn't have the Leica I'd probably go for the Olympus.
