Gave my new lens its first real test today and I'm very pleased with the results - great colour and sharpness across the image. These are all processed through AutoHDR on the 'sharp' preset and the Facebook resize settings.

Nice Martin

I've used a couple of different CZ 16-80s and their color rendition is as good as any lens I've used. One of the lenses was noticeably sharper then the other. I think we came to that we came to the conclusion that one of the elements was out of alignment. But yours looks fine. Thats a really nice kit you got there.
