The picture on top (Click on it to see the full size version!) shows an intriguing test made by DSRLcheck (Click here). It compares the JPEG quality of the very likely three new most famous mirrorless cameras at 28mm focal length. It looks like the Fuji 18mm X lens isn't as expected. The edge probably goes to the Tamron 18-200 II VC lens for NEX and the Olympus 9-18mm lenses. I am very, very surprised to see that Tamron sharpness!
