Comparing sharpness of 16-80 to other lenses
24

Hello all!

I wanted to create a semi-detailed comparison of the MTF charts for the 16-80 to the 18-55, 18-135, and 16-55. I took the charts from fuji's website, overlapped them in photoshop, and gave an analysis of each comparison.

https://mmphotogandbike.home.blog/2019/07/29/new-fuji-travel-zoom-my-thoughts-on-the-xf-16-80mm-f-4-0-wr-ois-mtf-comparison/

I did this to aid those who are interested in pre-purchasing the 16-80 so they can make a better decision. It's also just fun to discuss the pros and cons of each optical design.

I think the 16-80 will be a solid lens, potentially replacing entirely the need for the 18-55. However, time will tell.

Please let me know what you think of the analysis and leave your thoughts here!
