Yes, especially on APS-C cameras, which crop out those troublesome edges!

I have found it to be better than okay on APS-C. A year ago, when I was contemplating purchasing a K-1, I tracked down every full resolution images from the K-1 + FA 20-35 I could find online and just wasn't all that impressed with performance outside the APC-C image circle.



I also own the M 20/4. There about equal in sharpness (at least on APS-C). The FA 20-35 has better contrast and saturation, the old M 20 has better rendering.

True enough, but since I've never convinced that the 20-35 was good enough for the K-1 (which is partly why I bought a KP instead), what I've done with the 20-35 on APS-C can't really be of much use for those who want to use the lens on FF.

Unfortunately, no (although the WR of KP+55-300 PLM might be helpful in that scenario?). Hot tub at that KOA (near Newport, WA) doesn't open until 8:30 a.m. This picture was shot at 5:14 in the morning, at 1/10 sec., on a tripod, using PS.

For KOA hot tub with great views, nothing beats the St. Mary, Montana KOA on the eastern edge of Glacier NP.

Blame all you want. I actually haven't used the lens much since acquiring the DA 16-85 — until the last few weeks, went I took it with me on a trip through the Northwest. Here's another shot of Diablo Lake:

I can't say how true that is across the board, but it's definitely true about the Sony 50 f2.8 Macro. One of the most talented photographers in my area switched from an Olympus E-M5 + 12-40/2.8 Pro to a Sony FF + 50/2.8. This photography showed me some of her floral compositions shot with both systems, and I was shocked to find the Olympus, with its significantly smaller sensor, clearly providing better results. The Sony images, although impressively sharp, looked flat and unnatural. Even the color was inferior. The problem with Sony is that they don't have a long tradition in photography, and that sometimes leads to an over-emphasis on numerical spec goals at the expense of subjective perceptual/aesthetic goals. Sony is great at providing high resolution wrapped in the latest tech, but they fall short when it comes to traditional photography values such as ergonomics, handling, camera design, and real image quality (i.e., what you see with you eyes rather than what can be measured on test charts),
