What a shame: the referee’s decision about the f8 tackle on the Japanese/Brazilian Zuiko has completely put team Olympus off its rhythm. A sulky performance like this f11 doesn’t do them any credit and, frankly, it’s not good for the sport. As if to add insult to injury, the Canon 24mm lifts its game with a scorching performance at this aperture, smashing the diffraction-y Olympus which is even outperformed by a outstanding late run from the Nikon.

I rather fear it’s all over for the Olympus, which came such a long way on such a limited budget. The little fella is looking absolutely shattered: stumbling all over the middle of the park against competition which has the legs to turn in stronger performances at this aperture, even in the corners (just about).
