Z 24-200 Sharpness
1

I have recently purchased a Z 24-200 lens to go with my new Z8. I had been shooting with a D850 with an F 24-120 f/4 lens so I decided to do a sharpness test between the two combinations.

The D850 with, the F lens, produced much sharper photos both in the middle and the corners over a range of focal lengths and apertures (I can provide examples if necessary). This came as a great surprise to me especially considering the Photographylife review which compared the exact same lenses and concluded that the Z lens was slightly sharper (https://photographylife.com/lenses/nikon-nikkor-z-24-200mm-f4-6-3-vr/4).

Has anyone else observed this? Is it possible that I have obtained a bad copy of the 24-200? If so, any advice on how I could go about to test this before I contact the seller?

Thanks
