    Has anyone made a comparison between micro-contrast versus sharpness for Pana and Oly lenses? Can micro-contrast be measured?

    Yes it can. But, no, I haven't. With digital, micro contrast is also affected by the sensor (more specifically the AA filter and colour arays). So you may see different results on an EM1 and EM5 for example. I do remember the obvious differences between the EP1 and EPL1 as well.

    I'm sure someone who really understands MTF charts will chime in on how to compare micro contrast between lenses.

    Can anyone define exactly what micro-contrast is?
