10-24 vs 14 samples

Is it just me or do I see a bit more detail from the 14 on this picture:

Look at the top right black design on the wall. Or the street. The colors look just a bit more washed out on the 10-24 too. The whole set below, discovered from Fujirumors:

I cannot see these since i need to log in and do not have an account. But, as I recall from the Photozone.de review of the fuji 14mm, it, at the time, broke a new record for sharpness of the Fuji lenses. So no surprise reading your observations. Kind if what. I expected with the 23mm vs the 18-55 at a common aperture.

As I have written a few times on this site, I enjoy how the 14 and 18-55 zoom share the same filter size and hood. That is convenient. The 10-24 would require new filters and more money so I am sticking with what i have. the size of the 14m on an XE body looks perfect.

I'm with you Al and have the same reasons for the 14 - I've got 6 small (<=62mm) filters in the front of my Domke F5-XB bag. 72mm or 77mm ones would probably have to take the place of an extra lens and I've promised to myself after getting the XE-2 to never go back carrying bigger bags. Just curious how the two lenses compare.

Yeah, i was toying with the idea of the upcoming 16-55 f/2.8 but it will also be big, and take 77mm filters. My biggest filter is an IR filter which is 67mm, then a 62 and 58mm CPL and clear filters and a box of step-up rings. I may pick up the 35mm with the sale for the bokeh potential to include in my bag with the 14 and the zoom and sometimes the fisheye. i love that i can carry a 14, and both zooms in a Tamrac Rally 4 bad which can also hold a small bottle of water on a side sleeve. Whatever combo I take, it all fits in a bag that I can use all day without shoulder aches. Small size, great IQ, perfect for any occasion!

The Problem is there are some Lens corrections in the Camera Engine.

Those links don't work. Can you post the actual images or links that work please.

I feel I ought not to say this.  But I think this thread could be the perfect example of why it really doesn't matter whether you have a 14 or a 10-24, because the difference is likely to be very subjective. Sorry for saying this, and if it turns out that the 10-24 blows the 14 to hell, then I'll apologise again.  For what it's worth, I have the 14, and I'll save money if I'm right.  Thank you.

Am I not smart ?! Sorry and here you go. Both shot at f/9, ISO 200, I'm guessing tripod.

Yes you are smart! Thanks for that. F9 may not be the ideal aperture. Most Fuji lenses seem to peak at F5.6.

I am assuming the 10-24 was set to 14mm as they seem to have the image scale. Both are tilted too - I guess the horizontal level tool was not used.

They look much the same to me. I wonder if it was just a cloud passing that made the lighting a bit different.

Greg.

Yeah I agree. No real difference I can detect on the one sample.Of course the 10-24 can go to 10mm and beyond 14 so it may be useful for framing wide angle scenes if treated with respect. A 10mm lens is capable of some pretty ugly shots if not levelled well. Elongations, leaning walls and trees are not my thing!

This is the main reason I'm hanging onto my 18-55mm - when I need a longer FL with my 58mm ND or CPL that it shares with my workhorse 14mm.

They are not quite from the same spot but saying that the 14 looked better to me especially at the center edges.  I rally need to view in my monitor though and not mr iPad.

If it were not so big maybe, the 14 is such a good size and wide enough for landscape guys like me. I get frustrated with 28mm (35mm equiv).
