My Batis 18mm F/2.8: a dud or my expectation is unrealistic?
1

I tested my newly acquired Batis 18mm F/2.8 today. I found my Sony FE 16-35 F/4.0 is sharper at 18mm F/4 than Batis 18mm at F/4. Attached are the images for comparisons. Let me know what you think. The focus points are at the center of the trees in the middle area. Thanks.
