Re: Yet another "which lens" question

I have this lens, and the more I use it the more I appreciate it. It is a perfect all-in-one 5X travel zoom.

People will come on this forum shortly after me to tell you how poor it is at 16 mm, but I have a 20X28” Grand Canyon print on my wall with sharp corners, great contrast, etc. It was taken hand held at 16 mm, F7.1.

In my opinion, anything after F5.6 or F8 is plenty sharp even in the corners. If you have been happy with the 18 mm end of the 18 to 55 then you’ll be happy with the 16-80 at 16, f5.6 or smaller.  HTH.
