question

How does this image quality of this lens compare to the Olympus 40-150mm? I see some people saying that they're largely similar while others say the Olympus is sharper and wanted some clarification.
Asked by: Brendan

question

From 1 to 10, how sharp is this lens?
Asked by: German
This lens is not particularly sharp, however considering the price it's a good value. If shooting subjects that are relatively close to the camera it performs well, however its resolving power drops with distance. For example, when shooting landscapes I find the parts of the scene at infinity are soft and I need to apply more sharpening in post-processing than most of my other lenses. If you're looking for a budget lens that will get you some extra reach from time to time, this is a great option. On the other hand, if you're going to be using it as your primary lens and sharpness is critical (e.g. birding, wildlife) then I would suggest looking at other options like the Panasonic 100-300, Leica 100-400, or Olympus 40-150.
