I made this comparison below with the Lenstip charts, where I tried to align the axes.

My own images with the 16-80 are mostly sharper than the 18-55 and are much in line with below figures.

You can also see that the 16-55 has its own compromises.

LensTip results place the 16-80 significantly sharper than the 18-55, and close to the 16-55. Does this suggest that the 18-55 and 16-55 are overrated and/or the 16-80 underrated, or LensTip is misleading?

The 16-80 was tested on higher resolution sensor. Even lens tip tells you not to directly compare results.
