i love it but its just not sharp enough i know there are zoom lens' shaper than this, but seriously i dont plan on getting rid of the 35mm i love it to death honestly never gonna get rid of this lense im just looking for a good upgrade to replace my 55-200 and the kit lense 18-55 which is why i would either want a good zoom lense or a solid 50 or 85.
it does seem that the 16-85 is a good lense
these i took with my 35mm, the colors are great but if you really look at them the sharpness really is not there.
As for the second one, at f/13 I'm going to say you're experiencing diffraction with too low an f-stop on this one.
And I really have to ask: Is there pixel peeping going on here?
