First off: I’m not a professional camera reviewer. I don’t have fancy resolution charts and such. Just a beloved old camera sitting on a pallet shelf and some idea of what sharpness and depth of field should look like.

The cameras were mounted on a tripod. The Canon 16-35mm/2.8L II (at 35mm) was mounted to the Canon 6D. The Fuji had its 23mm/2.0 lens (35mm full frame equivalent.) I messed up on the closeness and height of the lens to the subject. The 6D with the rather large 16-35mm sits higher and closer. I’d reshoot one of the test to match the other if it wasn’t so cold out.

Major Findings:
1) Bokeh is a thing that produces blurry backgrounds, or something like that. Both lenses have pleasing bokeh.
2) Sharpness is a thing that makes objects appear digitally as they are in real life. Both lenses are very sharp.
3) The Fuji has LOTS of menus to do simple things. I’ll figure the shortcuts out someday.
4) RAW imports, no adjustments were made to the files. JPEGs output from Lightroom 5.7.
5) Click on the image for full resolution pixel peeping.
6) You can have my 1945 Leica IIIc when you pry it out of my cold, dead hands.
