Very Sharp

I have owned the Canon 7d and 17-55 2.8 combo twice.  Both times the 17-55 2.8 was stellar and did not disappoint.  But at more then $1000 for just the lens, I would have been very angry if it was anything less.  The Fuji 18-55 lacks the constant aperture of 2.8, but it is less then half the size and close FAR less money.  However, as sharp as the Canon 17-55 was, I think that the Fuji is just a little sharper.  I loved the Bokeh that the Canon lens gives, not as nice as a FF but pretty good overall.  The Fuji lacks the bokeh, out of focus rendering is nice, but not as strong as the Canon.  But again, if size matters [and for me, it is the most important aspect] then the Fuji offering is darn nice.  Extremely light and compact.
