Re: Comparing sharpness of 16-80 to other lenses

The 16-55f2.8 comes out looking really nice, but a maximum magnification of .16 instead of .25 really hurts it for me.

Lots of barrel distortion too (we’ll wait and see if Fuji has changed design philosophy at all here), and of course there’s the “Six Stops OIS!!!”

Even before release the 16-80 is on the cusp of legendary status for someone who loves to do Macro outdoors, but I can’t make the call until reviews are out, you never know if it will have horrible Vignetting or CA or Distortion.

I will be holding my breath waiting for this one.
