Nikon lens comparisons sample shots

I was in a camera store recently, testing various lenses with my D7500.  I wish I'd set this up to be identically shot from the same spot, but I was there mainly to look for wide angle lenses to use for astrophotography, and wanted to see their Tokina 11-16 and didn't immediately think of doing a proper comparison.  I ended up testing two other lenses as well as my old 18-70 that I had with me, so some of you might find this an interesting comparison of the wide ends of all these .  I reduced size to post here, but did not sharpen anything.

I ended up buying the Tokina for its extra wide angle to use on a DX, and it's fast 2.8, but I really liked the Nikon 20/2.8....but it would be 30mm on my DX.  Dang.

1.  My old Nikon 18-70/3.5-4.5 from 2004

2.  Nikon 16-80/2.8-4

3.  Nikon 20/2.8

4.  Tokina 11-16/2.8
