Re: a little more on cross-system comparisons

Just talked about Imatest at one of our photo club expert, he suggests that sharpening and in camera corrections have a very significant impact on Imatest results making comparisons between different systems and even different cameras from the same brand somewhat hazardous. Unless you know exactly how to calibrate things right, it's a bit like comparing lens performance based on 2 images, one processed with eg DxO and the other processed with LR... this is why Imatest results for the same camera/lens combo may be very different and unless you have all the details about the test procedure, it's better to be used to compare how various lenses perform on just a single camera.

For the very same lenses, here's the Imatest sharpness results found on a French review site www.lesnumeriques.com, some may find they're more likely to reflect the performance of both combos, but anyway, the good news is that the Z 24-200 is definitely a great piece of glass:

Oh no! Now the other lens is better!

Excellent post, thank you.
