    Dear All

    I was looking out the window and saw an interesting scene. Wondered how different mirrorless cameras would "see" the image and I decided to do this article. When outside the conditions change and it is less controlled, but still interesting.

    I used the following bodies:

    - Panasonic GX8

    - Panasonic GH4

    - Panasonic G9

    - Olympus EM1 MKII

    - Fujifilm XT-20

    - Sony A7 MKII

    - Olympus PEN F

    You will find the article here

    Interesting article.
    Thank's for sharing.
    Apart from the Sony image, the other ones seam very close to each other.

    I've purchased a Panasonic 12-35 f/2.8 a few months ago and quickly realized that is very prone to flare.
    And sometimes it casts very ugly flare (nasty green blobs).
    We must use it very carefully to avoid that.
    My relation with that zoom is a love and hate one. I'm learning to deal with it because sometimes it gives me very good pictures. It just needs quality light.

    Interesting...I have both the 12-40mm Oly and the 12-35mm Panny. (I buy and sell) The Oly IQ is amazing and very reliable. The 12-35 IQ is also awesome when no flare like you say PLUS its nice and light and small... The 35-70 f2.8 is one of the best I have....
    This flare seen on these images are bad....I did see it in the past but not as stand out as this time. Must say it is not good for confidence.... I keep your hate/love comment in mind, thanks - Siegfried

    I'm surprised at how much better the Sony image is. In my opinion ..
