    I wanted to buy the 35-100 ( to partner my 12-35 on my GH3) but all the resolution tests I've seen so far don't show it being very good at the edges and corners until it stopped down to 5.6. My Canon 70-200L 2.8 does not give much up in the corners and edges when shot wide open on full frame and I was expecting a similar level of performance from a M4/3 lens which seeks to cover this 'working area' Lack of clarity and contrast on the 45-175 ( as posted on here) can be addressed in RAW and the extra reach, power zoom ( for video) and 1/3 the cost are big plus points. Anyone got any resolution tests comparing the edge and corners on these lenses? I'll using this lens for landscape RAW stills and video with no requirement to shoot portraits, closeup, moving objects or get exited about Bokeh ( have other camera systems for these)
