Hi Ian,

I don't think the refrain that primes are always sharper than zooms is always true. Two notable examples : the Nikon 14-24/2.8 is sharper than Nikon's own primes within its zoom range and Fuji's 18-55/2.8-4 out-resolves their own 18mm prime. They are a minority of course, but they're there.



Not sure what you point is. The Sony Zeiss E 16-70mm is sharper than the Fuji 18-55mm according to the new ephotozine review, has the same size and significantly longer and wider range.

The 16-70mm is one of the most attractive standard zooms on the market.

I would be pretty surprised if the new Sony Zeiss FE 24-70mm would be anything less than that on FF.
