    In the UK the Panny 14-45 can be had for £229 the 12-40 is £899........Expected it, I'd have demanded it :smile:

    Why wouldn't you expect that a $1000 newly developed pro-class lens is sharper than an older design $200 kit lens

    I thought not matter how good the new design is, at f/5.6 there would be minimal differences. Obviously I was wrong.
