Some people want to have a test between the Noktor -SLR Magic- 12mm f/1.6 and the Olympus Zuiko digital ED 12mm f/2, and i have the opportunity to have a loan (from my favorite photographer local store Panajou in Bordeaux) of the Olympus.
So I've done a very quick test this afternoon with those two lenses on the GH2.
The Olympus seems to be sharper, but the Noktor has a more strong "cinematic" feeling. The Noktor seems to be a little more wider than the Olympus.
