<div id="linkdxomark">This a comment for <a href="http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/Reviews/Best-lenses-for-your-Olympus-OMD-E-M5-Panasonic-Lumix-DMC-GH3">this page on the website</a></div>Yes you heard right.  It is a mystery why DxO has not reviewed one of the most common and least expensive Panasonic zooms available, the Panasonic 14-42 f/3.5 5.6 (Version 1)  Slightly dialed up to 18mm and set at f/8, the lens is unbelievably sharp.  Sharper than any prime lenses at that range.  It would easily rank in the top 5 sharpest lens ever made at f/8 and/or 35mm equiv.  That is an insanely bold statement to make, but you should really check it out for yourself.  It really deserves your attention.

Do your primes do this?

Hello,

Thanks for your interest in DxOMark.

Thanks for your feedback we will try to assess the Panasonic 14-42 f/3.5 5.6 in the coming month but this is not a priority for now.

Best regards,
