Soundimageplus: Comparison between Panasonic G3 + 12mm f/2 and Sony NEX-C3 + 16mm f/2.8

I've compared the two camera / lens combinations, which I own with regard to ISO performance and the lenses at all apertures.

One thing that came out of this was how, under controlled conditions and mounted on a tripod, the 16mm f/2.8 Sony lens compared to the Olympus 12mm f/2. The 16mm doesn't exactly get a lot of enthusiastic endorsements whereas the 12mm does. I was interested to find out for myself, as having a NEX-7 on order I wanted to see just what it was capable of.

There is a link to a large file so that you can have a look, but I was quite surprised by the fact that the 16mm produced, what I consider, are very decent results.

I've also put together a long personal review of the NEX-C3 here:-

Thanks for sharing. It really seems the pane 12 mm is a bit overhyped (even Photozone thinks so) and the 16 mm is still as bad in mind as the pre-production samples were.

Oh, and love the pic on top of your review with the 18-55 lens - it looks so nicely. :D
