I've been interested in this lens from its announcement date, due to the very small size and fast aperture. However the samples taken by Fuji cameras seem somewhat disappointing thus far. Today I found this set of photos taken on a Sony A6000 and the lens finally has its chance to shine: http://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3677953?page=1 At f8 it's super sharp corner to corner!

It is no secret that Fuji sensors struggle with compact lens designs and Fuji wide-to-normal lenses have always been relatively weak in the corners. This incidence has made me wonder if my lenses would improve if used on a new sensor? Will we see more compact designs in the future?
