Re: 16/2.8 and 16/1.4 - Comparison image pair - Thoughts?

Well the 16 f/1.4 is definitely better, but not by a mile. You might see a more significant difference with a 24MP camera, but maybe not. Also, I imagine you could get significantly more fine detail out of either of these images with careful RAW processing (which also might also reveal a greater difference in image quality between them). That said, I think the f/2.8 lens put in a very good showing here and looks to be far better than the one I used briefly at a lens tryout event. The copy I tried had more CA issues than any other Fuji glass I've ever used and wasn't even in the same zip code as my 16-55 in overall image quality at 16mm, especially at f/2.8. Yours looks really good though, I'd be quite happy with it. How is it wide open indoors?
