| p.2 #9 · Just one of those dilemas. 7D vs OM-D for specific use. |
If you are talking about some of the zooms, yes, I agree. Not at all about most of the primes, nor the new 12-35 and 35-100 zooms. There are some really sweet lenses there. The PanaLeica 25/1.4 has better rendering than almost anything short of a Leica 50mm f/1.4 ASPH Summilux-M. The Oly 9-18 is nothing special wide open, and the build is a bit flimsy, but stopped down, it is not merely good, but excels. There was a recent shot in one of the MFT threads, maybe the OM-D thread, which showed this.
And I have definitely used good lenses, everything from Nikkor to Leica R to Leica M and Zeiss ZF and Contax, and a whole slew of Zeiss and Schneider medium format stuff.
I don't personally like the Panasonic 20/1.7 but many do.
Ultimately, this has to be seen in comparison to what else is out there in mirrorless land, or maybe APS-C land, and I don't think that there is another non-FF lens lineup out there which has as much good stuff to choose from.
