12-200mm M.Zuiko F3.5-6.3 Lens


Another "non-technical review."  Yes, the zoom range is fantastic. But if you start enlarging the images, I find they are not particularly sharp. I am talking about landscape shots.  I have not done any macro shots with this yet. Frankly, had I spent more time with the lens after purchasing, I think I would have sent this one back.  Perhaps I got a "dud?"

This is a photo of recently exposed tundra.  It is at 1/400th, F 11.0.  There is NOTHING in this image that is sharp.

I don’t know this lens, but maybe open it up a bit, Walton. Shooting at such a small aperture on MFT isn’t going to help with sharpness. I’d say you will probably do better at 5.6.
