Zeiss 16-70 and Canon 18-55 STM reviewed on EPZ
4 months ago

Ephotozine reviewed the Canon kit lens on a Canon 600D and the Zeiss 16-70 on a NEX7. Despite the NEX7 having a higher pixel count sensor, the MTF charts for both indicate its a very tight contest with Zeiss being a bit better on the long end. EPZ gave Canon 4.5 stars and Zeiss 3.5 stars in the 'performance' category.

But the issue is the Zeiss costs at least 5 times more than the Canon kit lens. Of course this isn't the whole picture and its 2 totally different systems but it's still revealing. See links below. I don't mean to criticize any lens here or offend any fanboys/girls in any camp. Just thought it was interesting to read both reviews side by side.
