Your math is off a bit on the Sony crop factor, which is 1.5. That makes the effective focal length on a NEX camera 45mm not 50.7mm.

Michael, the author said it was a 50.7 degree angle of view, not a 50.7mm equivalent.

Thank you for one more great review…i receive your letters and always check your reviews…just wondering why not make available the RAW files as you do on the camera reviews…

I’m guess that optically the nex-version and the m4/3-version are identical so I wish you had tested the nex-version too for things like vignetting and sharpness at the edges (it will be a more demanding set up for the lens). Other than that the choice of a 46mm filter thread for this lens is odd, but perhaps it makes sense for m4/3 users.

I got one of this to go with my E-PL2 when on holiday last month in Singapore and I must say; what a steal! It cost me S$245 - 5.5% Tourist tax back so effectively costing me about £115 only. I got this as a short portrait/standard lens and was amazed by its quality. It is nice and sharp and focus fast in most lighting conditions. Overall, I am quite pleased with my purchase.
