    from the MTF it looks excellent! it should'nt lose to the 50mm by much if at all wide open...
    and for a 1:1 macro it is CHEAP!

    normal? sure or not? i think its going to be another legend for ZD collection. if sharpness is ur cup of tea, juz look at the MTF chart, its really fantastic!! i have no doubts with Oly ZD glass, they r definitely great with distortion & CA control as well. & mind u, this is a prime lens, if their zooms r already such record breaking, i really dun see this prime lens anywhere short of excellent. most importantly must have good pricig for me to grab.(of cos will be cheaper cos its a F3.5)

    ya! ya! ya! get the 11-22mm first then get the 18-180mm. u r all set to travel the world in 80 days!! yet another deadly combo from Oly.

    BUY LAH!!


    now i m very very curious as to how the 10x zoom lens perform compared to the other 10x zooms. how about a comparison with the Canon 35-350mm L? or the Sigma 50-500mm?

    looks suspiciously like the sigma 18-200.... which may not be that bad as it seems to have won some awards...




    thier mtf charts differ but oly's mtf charts are slightly different...
