Bravo !!
Chris and Jordan confirmed the average or less-than-average optical quality of the Fujinon. For still photos. 

But for filming it's a different story, according to Jordan: Chris and he were excited about the capabilities of the OIS, Jordan mentioned at 16:9 the corners are not that bad like on 3:2, the minimized focus breathing and good manual focus (although that part looked not very smooth). What also did look good, was the shape of highlights. Unfortunately onion rings...
I wanted to chime in here and say that I am really looking forward to the review of the new 16-80 f4 lens. I was close to getting it when it came out, but held off due to mixed reports. I would love to read a technical review that I can fully trust.

Well... if even they find the edges to be subpar at most focal lengths (and they do), I imagine it would be a bloodbath in Klaus' lab.

Love the meaningless EPZ rating: 4.5/5 for optical quality, ahaha, what a joke! Welcome to the feel good american way of doing ratings.
That's why I love OpticalLimits so much: you guys are just and 2.5 out of 5 doesn't mean it's bad but average. Good for you :-)
Anyway, I'm glad I purchased the Oly 12-100 f4 instead. It's a marvelous lens (despite the size), very sharp even in the corners at all focal lengths. Perfect travel companion.
Markus has it (and the 16/1.4, 15-45, 8-16) on his desk ...


It's time for a new bloodbath anyway ;-)

I am excited to see the review for the 16-80 and 15-45. I am curious to see what you find.
