EM5 and Sharp Primes

Thought this may be of interest to you users of the EM5 and ZD prime lenses as Phase One seem to have aimed this advise at those users.

Regards Paul.

Re: EM5 and Sharp Primes

Interesting item. In fact, interesting blog attached...

I can't say I've seen moire with the 45mm and E-M5. The lens seems to be mighty sharp to me, so perhaps I will go looking for the effect next time I have the lens and sunshine with me.

BTW, If that 45mm does have a failing, it is longitudinal chromatic aberration wide open (a common sharp lens failing) where details in front and behind the focus point have green and purple halos. Generally this vanishes as you stop down.

Look, I'm an old man. I shouldn't be expected to put up with this.
