G12's Close-Up, Sharp?

Most of you read my rant on how sharp the Canon G7's close-up is ;)

I even showed you a JPEG image I took of a Canadian bumblebee at the beautiful Butchart Garden on Vancouver Island, Canada!

I even blow-up the bee in a 100% crop and show you how SHARP the little zoom lens on the G7 can deliver!

Panasonic LUMIX G VARIO 7-14 mm F4.0 ASPH

The Panasonic LUMIX G VARIO 7-14 mm F4.0 ASPH is an ultra-wide-angle zoom lens for the Micro Four Thirds system.

This light weigh and compact lens provide a 35 mm equivalent focal range of 14-28 mm!

At it's 7 mm setting this solidly built lens gave a whopping 114-degree angle of view!

According to Panasonic and I quote:

"This high-performance lens system achieves outstanding compactness by combining 16 lens elements in 12 groups, including two aspherical lenses and four ED lenses.
