I'm not 100% sure I'm happy with the out of the box performance of the Z 24-200mm. Even stopped down, I don't think it is close to the capabilities of the 24-70/4. May be I have a bad copy of the lens. I plan on keeping it for a bit. It sharpens up nice using post processing (Topaz Sharpen AI)...but I don't need to do that with any other lenses on the Z.

Here are a few from yesterdays walk around - SOOC JPG with a light tough on post processing in Lightroom.

They just do not seem to have the same "bite" as the 24-70...here are 24-200 shots with Topaz Sharpen AI processed:

I mean, I guess I could live with running all the images through Sharpen AI, but that seems like it should be unnecessary. For the price and the accolades of the reviewers, you'd think it would be a better performer. Again, I may have a non-optimal copy of the lens. testing continues!
