Announcement: Revision of the MFT tests
We are performing internal revisions every once in a while. Unfortunately we have to report a (now fixed) issue in the micro-four thirds section.

The test results for the

* Panasonic 20/1.7

* Panasonic 14-45/3.5-5.6

* Panasonic 45-200/4-5.6

have been (slightly) incorrect.

Reason - the MTF RAW files are first DNG converted prior of being converted to JPG. Unfortunately there was a version change in the DNG converter between these three and the other tests in this section - and we (to precise - I) didn't the keep the converter version constant at the time. The problem is, however, that the newer converter uses a different demosaicing engine which produces slightly worse center ratings.

This alone may be unfortunate for the validity of those three tests. However, the center resolution of the Panasonic 20/1.7 provided the reference value (measured max. LW/PH peak) so we had to revise all charts in the MFT section.

As a consequence the LW/PH scale is now "lower" resulting in 1/3 of a mark better ratings although the LW/PH numbers remain the same. Apart from the three mentioned lenses this does not change the rankings within the category.

We do deeply apologize for the issue.
