Lenses. Been thinking
3

Seriously, I am not knocking the wonderful 10-24. However, as I do a ton of shooting at FF 24mm, the new 16 f2.8 MTF shows up at around 65 (wide open, of course). The 10-24 around 16mm also has a similar MTF.

Here is the issue: The 10-24 weighs 410 grams. The new 16 comes in at 155 grams. Huge difference. The price is $900 (10-24) verses $400 for the new 16. The 10-24 has OS, the 16 does NOT - but it is weather sealed. As I rarely shoot wide open, f5.6 or f8 is fine.

Different strokes for different folks. As much as I hate returning the 10-24, it seems very prudent . . . especially since I went from Nikon to Fuji BECAUSE ot the weight. The Fuji X-T30 is a lightweight. Just my thoughts.
