Tale of 4 lenses (sharpness comparison)
1

Weather is bad so I just pulled out some old "test pictures" for fun. My friend's Nikon 24-85 kit lens on his D600, against my RX100 P&S camera, CZ24-70 (on A99) as well as my $200 bargain Sigma 24-60/2.8 (same ID as Sigma 24-70) on Canon 7D. Nothing fancy just straight out of window testshot, all manual focus.

Not surprisingly CZ 24-70 is sharper in this quick test, what's surprising is how soft Nikon 24-85 is, even Rx100 beat it cleanly. My personal surprise is the Sigma 24-60/2.8 for its sharpness, compact size and dirt cheap price (they make Sony version, if you can find one).
