Two possible explanations here:
- The Canon/Sony lenses have smoother bokeh and give the illusion of a thinner DOF.
- Fuji overstates their max aperture. Wouldn't surprise me seeing how they have no problem overstating their ISO and AF speed/IQ claims. I hope lensrental can shed some light into this.
