Hi Kendall,

I didn't get to the "original" on my first look. Yes the Sigma is sharper, as expected, however I could live with the Fuji unless I had the need for really large prints.

I'm not sure I could, the sharpening halos are pretty strong and the treeline is really fuzzy - in that image any flaw in the treeline would dry your eye in like a magnet.

It is possible to minimize the Fuji haloes by setting sharpness to less-than-default, then sharpening in post, quite similar basically to what is recommended for the Sigmas.  Unfortunately for the test shots I had sharpness set to default in the Fuji.
