XF80 vs XF90 - some comparisons

Did a test run of the 80 against a 90 with a fellow photographer. I had my face painted so we could get some colour and he used his and my X-T2's, one with the 80 and one with the 90. We used "Prayer in C" which is a song featuring mexican style face paint as theme to add some colour. If my eyes are red, it's because my wife did the makeup and got face paint in my eye whilst doing it, I don't normally look like I have roadmaps in my eyes

Have to say, the 80 is good, but from a sharpness perspective, its actually hard to see the difference between the 80 and 90.

The focal points are slightly different which is why the 80 has better sharpness on the contact lens. Its not scientific, but it was good to try

Here are some closeups with the 80

The info button will show you which lens was used. Unfortunately, despite my incredibly good looks (with face paint), I have no clue how actually pose myself.
