Test Results: MTF (Sharpness)

At the 24mm setting at f/8 the 24-240mm lens is extremely sharp and is among the best I have seen from a travel zoom. The edges are soft, but still acceptable. Resolution drops as the focal length increases and at 240mm you need to shoot at f/11 to really get the best from the lens, but sadly the corners still suffer badly.

At 24mm with an aperture of f/8 the lens is exceptionally sharp

At 70mm, with an aperture of f/11, we see a drop

At 240mm, even at the optimum aperture of f/11 we see the corners deteriorating
