Nikon 18-105 vs 16-85
Apr 27, 2013

I got a D7100 and went and bought the Nikon 16-85 but in my tests, the Nikon 18-105 is clearly sharper. I did manual exposure to match them up and I am really disappointed in the 16-85. I used a tripod and turned off VR.

Buzz's purple shoe on the left is sharper with the 18-105 even though I didn't focus there. Am I missing something with my test?

18-105

16-85
