90 years of the Olympus company - Olympus F.Zuiko Auto-S 50 mm f/1.8 versus Olympus ZD 50 mm f/2.0 Macro

11. Summary

Like in the cases of other „old versus new” duels, again we might try a simplified scoring in the case of every category described here and a final verdict. Here, the verdict is rather unequivocal. If we grant two points for every win and one point for a draw, the new lens is the clear winner with the result of 14:3. We must remember one important thing, though. Our duel is nothing but good fun as, in reality, it is very difficult to compare a very specialized and expensive macro lens with a cheap, lighter standard lens. Olympus transition from full frame to a small 4/3 matrix forces such an uncharacteristic comparison, though. You might try to compare the Leika 1.4/25 , designed to work with the 4/3 as a standard lens, with the classic standard analogue 1.4/50 but then still we would need to simplify and compromise.
