Back to E-M1 Mk.II Lens Fest, Part 1

F = 40 mm

Full frame, reduced, at F/8

F/4.0

F/5.6

F/8.0

F/11

At the wide end this lens performs very nicely, defying its low price and plastic construction. Even fully open it shows nice sharpness and contrast, center to corners, improving only slightly at F/5.6.

F = 74 mm

Full frame, reduced, at F/8

F/4.7

F/5.6

F/8.0

F/11

At the middle focal length, 75 mm (really 74 was as close as I could set it), the performance is almost (if not quite) as at 40 mm.Noyhng to boast about, but solid.

F/8 would be my choice for sharpest pictures, but even the full aperture of F/4.7 does not leave much room for complaints.

Back to E-M1 Mk.II Lens Fest, Part 1

F = 150 mm

Full frame, reduced, at F/8

F/5.6

F/8.0

F/11

F/16

As always in this focal range, the long end is the weak spot. At F/5.6 the lens is just adequate, improving considerably when stopped down to F/8.
