Sharpness

Sharpness at 45mm

The sharpness tests for this review were carried out using a real-world subject rather than a test chart. The LEICA DG MACRO-ELMARIT 45mm F2.8 ASPH. MEGA O.I.S. lens was attached to a Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 compact system camera, which in turn was mounted on a sturdy tripod. The self-timer was used to avoid any vibrations from pressing the shutter release. Slight tonal changes are due to slight changes in natural light during the session.
