XF 18 f1.4 review of Lenstip is out, time to call it the new Mighty?
6

Lenstip released its review of the XF 18 f1.4 or what we could call now the Mighty 18!

https://www.lenstip.com/611.1-Lens_review-Fujifilm_Fujinon_XF_18_mm_f_1.4_R_LM_WR_Introduction.html

I was expecting a better sharpness VS 16 f1.4 given all these years, but not that high!

The CA is also better, astigmatism, resistance to light...

Is it time to replace my Mighty 16 with a Mighty 18 for landcape and street photography?

The only thing is that minimal focus distance is still slightly better with the 16 f1.4 but 18mm is slightly closer FOV so I guess it's a draw for bokeh?
