XF 27 vs Meike 28mm f/2.8 - Sharpness

Hi all,

Just want to post a quick comparison between the two lenses. I did not even intend to a comparison, but it turned out I have two photos with almost the same composition. So here they are (100% crops).

XF 27mm @ f/7.1 (Center-left 1/3)

Meike 28mm (Center-left 1/3)

XF 27mm @ f/7.1 (Right edge)

Meike 28mm (Right edge)

You guys decide which lens is sharper But I do need to point out the lighting conditions were vastly different (obviously) and I do not remember the aperture for the Meike picture. Both developed with Lightroom: Meike is 80 mask for sharpening, WB adjustment and lens profile, Fuji is 30 mask - same sharpening magnitude. No other PP except for cropping and blacking out the house numbers, etc.

It seems like the Meike 28mm is less popular than its 35mm cousin, likely due to the smaller aperture, but I actually liked it quite much for the focal length and quite decent IQ.
