Micro 4/3’s Lenses Sharper than Full Frame Lenses? You Decide
There’s quite an interesting discussion ragging over on one of my favorite web sites DPReview regarding the sharpness of Micro Four Thirds lenses compared to some very famous Full Frame Canon’s Nikon’s, Leica’s and other world famous optics. It an interesting read having been reported by slrgear.com. I’m a little fuzzy on how they came to their conclusions and who exactly did the tests but DxO Labs are quoted as well as Imaging Resource. Lots of links to follow once you get there.
Based on their tests the quality Micro four Thirds lenses is truly starting to push the limits we’ve all been seeing over the past forty years or so. Better optics was just one of the advantages to the Micro Four Thirds system I had heard about when I started thinking about smaller cameras. Not sure why but both Panasonic and Olympus promoted this idea when they first announced the Micro Four Thirds consortium. They advertised better optics was one of the benefits of building a digital camera system from the ground up as opposed to retrofitting older DSLR designs so to speak.
